F-A-M-I-L-Y Decoupage Letters

I love Decoupage! The best part is that if you decide you don't like it later on, you can just decoupage over it :) I took over a month to purchase these letters- buying them one at a time with a 40% or 50 % off coupon-I know silly-but I'm trying to save $ right now and support my crafting habits at the same time. :) The total cost was less than $8 for the letters. (I did have everything else on hand already.) I wanted them to be different sizes, so I did my best to find similar looking letters -of different sizes. Of course, since I'm using up my stash of stuff, I did not purchase any new paper for them or embellishments, just used stuff I already had. The "letter I" I just bought a large wooded star for, painted it to look like the rest, and glued it on the "I" after decoupage.
And so another one of my decorating/crafting obsessions is decoupage, words, and wooden letters :)

So cute! I did this a little while back and everyone who comes in my home comments on them.

Have you heard of the Wood Connection in Salt Lake (actually, Murray)? I just went there yesterday and they have tons of fun wood to decorate. I got a few wood blocks to paint/decorate and decoupage for Sam to play with. And a wooden toy gun. I'm excited to get working on them!
