The Fourth of July isn’t far away, and I love the chance to decorate my home in tons of red, white, and blue items! The great thing about Fourth of July decor, is that it really can be left in your house year round without looking tacky. This Easy America Wooden Art looks stunning sitting on the mantle, or on a shelf.
If you don’t have a shelf, table, or mantle to put it on, you could always add a hanger to the back of the board and hang it on the wall. It would make awesome wall art as well! You won’t believe how simple this Easy America Wooden Art is to make!
Pine board, just big enough to fit your letters.
Pressed board, or wooden letters spelling out AMERICA (or whatever word you want to decorate with)
Red, White, and Blue acrylic paint
Start by laying your letters on your board, so you can measure the exact length you need it to be. Cut the board to the length you measured. Paint your board blue using the foam brush. While it dries, paint your letters alternating red and white. I started with red, but you can choose whatever order you want. Make sure to get in all the knooks and crannies of the letters. Don’t worry about painting the backs of your letters, since they won’t be seen.
After the blue board is dry, and all your letters have dried, you’re ready to attach them to the board. Use the E6000 to attach the letters to the board, one at a time, being careful to line them up evenly with each other. Allow your sign to sit overnight, to give the epoxy time to set completely. Now you’re free to display your Easy America Wooden Art for all to see!
