With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I saw this idea for mache letters on Pinterest and knew I had to make them and our 12″ Mache Letters for a quick and easy project that anyone can do!
Here is what you will need:
This paints up quickly and probably only took a total of a few hours if that. Here is what I did: Using DecoArt Americana Decor Chalky Paint in Romace I painted all sides of the letters, I loved the fact that the chalky paint covered the mache in one even coat, which made this project even quicker to complete. Dab your Paint Pouncer into Everlasting and tap it out on your palette. Then tap all over your stamp and align it on your letters, make sure to reapply paint before each use for a better transfer, just make sure you don’t have too much paint on your stamp. If some areas are a bit lighter after stamping, don’t worry about it, it adds to the charm of this project. Once it is completely dry, use your hot glue gun and glue the V and E together. Then glue the L to the top of the V, then the O to the L and the E.
That’s it, see, I told you it was simple. Now you can finish with your favorite spray varnish.
