Fall Craft: How to Make “Harvest” Wood Cutouts
I love fall. I love watching the leaves change colors. I love layering in all my favorite sweaters. I love decorating my house in fall colors and textures. I also enjoy eating the last fruits and vegtables from our local farmers market. When I think of fall, I think of harvest. To me, harvest describes an abundance of all that is good. Everything we have worked hard to plant or grow, we can now gather and show gratitude for it. I can't think of a better way to celebrate this year's fall season than to make a Crafty Wood Cutouts of the word "Harvest."
How to Make "Harvest" Wood Cutouts
- Wood letters from Craty Wood Cutouts
- Acrylic craft paint in a variety of colors
- Scrapbook paper (several different patterns for variety)
- Assorted ribbon
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush
1. Paint each letter a desired color. These can all be the same or they can be different. Let the paint dry.
2. Trace each wood letter onto the piece of craft paper you would like. Make sure you trace the letter backwards so when you glue it on the front, it will have the right side of craft paper showing.
3. Use the Mod Podge to glue the paper to the wood letter. You can take the scissors and trim the paper around the letter if you need to.
4. Use you hand to smooth out the paper on the wood. Work out any air bubbles that have formed. You can also add ripped paper to some of the letters if you want to add a little more texture or color to your letters.
5. When the paper has dried on the letters, put a final coat of Mod Podge on the entire letter. This will help seal the paper to the letter and give each letter a dull shine.
6. Add assorted ribbon and embellishments.
That is it, your project is finished. Display your fun project and be reminded daily of all you have. Enjoy the harvest!
