  1. Paint the wood letters with the Pure Gold Paint. You will only need paint along the edges of the letters.
  2. Trace each letter onto a different sheet of holiday print paper. Cut out the letters.
  3. Apply Mod Podge to the back of each paper and position on the top of the wood sign. Smooth with your fingers or a brayer to remove any air bubbles.  Allow to dry for 15 min and then top-coat with Mod Podge to seal.
  4. Add gem embellishments at the corners to highlight the letters.

PROJECT TIP: Personalize it by using photocopies of family photos instead of holiday papers.
