Make It Monday: Peaceful Poppies Wood Letter

During this pandemic time, our family is repainting the inside of the house. It's been exciting to see the change of each painted room...fresh and bright. Of course, before we put everything back in each room, we are doing some serious cleaning and organizing which means a new look for my craft space! Whoo hoo! One little gem I almost threw away was an old painted wooden letter. I decided to re-purpose it and share with you how to make one of your own.


I used a 6" tall letter but most any letters up to 12" tall will work with a 12" x 12" sheet of Designer Series Paper. 


First, turn your letter to face the back side of your DSP and trace along the edges with a pencil.

Cut out your DSP letter and trim off any overhang as much as possible. Adhere DSP to wooden letter. Once dry, use an emory board to scrap the edges at a downward angle to remove any excess DSP hanging over. 


I love the pop of color in my new craft space. 


Shop these supplies to make your own Peaceful Poppies wood letter. Just an FYI: the Peaceful Poppies DSP is retiring next week. Be sure to order this beautiful paper before it's gone!

This was the BEFORE picture of my craft desk. Not much room and difficult to keep organized.


Here is the AFTER picture of my crafting space. I'll eventually add some storage inserts from Stamp N Storage for the papers and punches but enjoying all the extra space and organization.
