Decoupage LOVE Letters

The versatility of this project allows you to choose between using only one paper color to make a bold impact statement, or to mix and match multiple colors and patterns of paper to create a personalized project to fit your own style. You can also experiment with different decoupage applicators to vary the finish texture of each letter.

For my project I mix and matched some of my favorite papers from Martha Stewart Crafts ® Paper Pad Love Notes 12″x 12″ paper pack. For the heart, I used the bold and sparkling glitter paper which even glitters through the decoupage.

Supplies:

  • Martha Stewart Crafts ® Paper Pad Love Notes 12″x 12″
  • Martha Stewart Crafts ® Decoupage Multi-Surface Finish – Durable Matte
  • Large Wooden Letters (12″ or smaller)
  • Sponge Roller
  • Sponge Applicator
  • Scissors
  • Craft Knife
  • Pencil

Instructions:

  1. Choose your favorite papers from Martha Stewart Crafts ® Paper Pad Love Notes 12″x 12″to work with. You can choose one design, or mix and match designs like I did.

  3. Carefully cut out the traced letters with your scissors. Repeat for each letter.
  4. With a sponge applicator, apply Martha Stewart Crafts ® Decoupage Multi-Surface Finish – Durable Matte to one wooden letter. Place the corresponding cut out paper letter on top of the decoupage and burnish to remove any air bubbles. Set aside and let dry as directed. Repeat for each letter.

  6. Using a sponge roller, apply Martha Stewart Crafts ® Decoupage Multi-Surface Finish – Durable Matte to the top and sides of each letter. You may need to use the sponge applicator to reach in the small groves. Set aside and let dry as directed. Repeat to apply a second coat. Using a sponge roller will add a textured finish to you craft as seen in the image below. For a smoother finish, experiment with different applicators like brushes and pouncers.
