My son and I have been looking for new ways to decorate his bedroom. He spotted some wooden letters in Walmart the other day – there were lots of different styles but he picked a 13″ letter F in a classic font. I asked him what his two favorite colors were, and he answered orange and red. So I found some Apple Barrel Pumpkin Orange and Apple Barrel Flag Red paint.
We decided to paint the base of the letter with the orange paint.
When that was dry, I wanted to add a stencil detail over the top, and found some great options in this value pack of Folk Art 26 Background stencils (also available at Walmart!).
When F had selected a stencil (which I think looked a bit Minecrafty – this week’s current obsession!), I used stencil tape to secure it into position, then we used the red paint and a spouncer to add the stencil detail.
I have to admit that he wanted me to do this part – I think he was worried he’d mess it up – although he’s used stencils before!
To finish, we brushed a layer of Mod Podge Washout For Kids over every surface.
And ta-da! Our finished decorated letter!
