Name Plate

This is the latest project I have worked on. I made a name plate for Tyler's room and he loves it. I used particle board cut into a 9 x 9. (got it from home depot, really cheap) I sanded the edges and painted them white. I bought the letters from Michael's and they were already painted white. I cut my scrapbook paper to a 9 x 9 to fit my board, glued it on with modge podge, put a layer on top and used a credit card to smooth out the bubbles. I let it dry, glued on the letters with wood glue and VOILA you have Tyler's name.
It was really easy too.
I have a happy boy! (This helps him recognize his name too)
I plan on doing Katie's name when she moves into her own room.
