Supplies to make this easy wood letter art sign:

You probably already own most of the supplies listed, but in case you don’t, I share links below to supplies you can buy to complete this easy wood décor art.

Since I already had most of the supplies, I only needed to buy the wrapping paper, wood letter cut out and foam board. I used a $1 thrifted frame that I had already painted and glazed prior.

How to make easy wood letter art:

  1. Plug in your hot glue gun.
  2. Using the X-Actor knife, cut the foam board down to size to fit snugly inside the frame. (Omit this step if your foam board is the exact size for the frame.)
  3. Place wrapping under foam board and trace the outline with a pencil. Cut wrapping paper down to size with scissors.
  4. Shake adhesive spray can well. Take foam board outside and spray one side with adhesive.
  5. Quickly bring back inside and place wrapping paper on tacky foam board. Smooth from center to outside edges to remove any bubbles.
  6. Apply hot glue to back of wood letter word. Place word onto wrapping paper in desired location.
  7. Place art board into frame.
  8. Apply 3M command strips to back of frame and hang on the wall. Enjoy your pretty art work!
