INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Use Liquid Glass to draw a random pattern of curls and dots on the front of each wooden letter. Allow to dry completely until it is clear and hard.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint the letters fronts and sides with two coats of New Life. Allow to dry.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Apply a coat of DuraClear Matte Varnish to the letters.
  4. Cut the burlap ribbon to a length that allows all the letters to fit lengthwise with a few extra inches on each end. Secure the bottom and top raw edges by turning over and attaching with hot glue.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Cut a length of rope long enough to make a loop for hanging the door decoration. Secure it by gluing the two ends together and then to the burlap ribbon. Fold the top of the burlap over and glue with a hot glue gun.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Using hot glue, attach the letters to the burlap ribbon.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Pull a pine floral pick apart. Using hot glue, tuck the stems under the letters. Adhere several pinecones as well.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Make a bow with wired ribbon and attach it to the top of the hanger with hot glue.
