paint poured letter plaque

Have fun paint pouring over a wood letter. This cute project is the perfect accent to a bedroom wall.
Step 1

Paint the wood plaque white. It may need a couple of coats. Let dry.

Step 2

Now, use sandpaper to soften the look around the edges and other areas. Set aside.

Step 3

Prepare for your paint pour. First, protect your working surface with a plastic drop cloth; then, add a few pushpins to the back of your wood letter so it is elevated from your working surface so the paint can drip off the sides of the letter.
TIP: Wear gloves to avoid messy hands.

Step 4

Now, layer different paints over each other in a disposable cup. Lightly stir two (or three) times.

Step 5

Pour the layered paint over your letter. Lift and tilt as needed, or desired, to cover your letter with paint. Set aside on a protected, level place to dry overnight.

Step 6

Place painted letter on the white plaque and glue in place.

Step 7

Tie a bow with a piece of ribbon and hot glue it to the top of your initial plaque.

Step 8

Finally, make a loop with the same ribbon for hanging and glue it to the back of the plaque.
