Floral Initial Wood Plaque

This is a fun and cute project for any girl out there. I made this wood plaque with Olivia’s initial out of flower magazine cutouts. It turned out super cute and I can’t wait to put some shelving up on her room to display it. Plus, it was super simple to make.

First, get the letter design. Either print one out to size or sketch one yourself. You want it to be mirror image so you can work on the backside of it.

Apply various magazine cutouts with ModPodge, a layer underneath each cut out and an application on top to seal. Place the paper against the light to make sure the whole letter is covered. Let dry.

Adhere letter to wood plaque with a layer of ModPodge. Place a piece of parchment paper on top and a heavy object to let it dry with the weight. This will make sure the letter glues on properly and flat.
