Hey folks! How has your weekend been? Mine has been great and also productive and now I've got a fun project to show you ^_^ And I even made a tutorial for it too! So, if you'd like to make a washi taped monogram brooch, read on! ^_^
Here's what you'll need:
- wooden letters
- white spray-paint
- washi tape
- old paintbrush
- badge backs
- strong glue
First off all: spray-paint your letters white. This makes the washi-tape patterns stand out more than just on plain wood, but you can still skip this step if you're not worried about that ^_^
When the letters are dry, stick strips of washi tape across them so that the entire letter is covered.
Then use your scalpel to trim the tape around the edges of the letter.
Use an old paintbrush to cover the top and sides of the letter in mod-podge. Don't use a new paintbrush because the mod-podge will ruin it!
Once the mod-podge is dry, attach a badge back with strong glue. I used E6000 - it's so good!
And that's it! It's done! ^_^
Now you can make a couple more!
Or a lot more! ~_^
These would also look great on the fridge - just replace the badge back with some strong little magnets.
So what do you think? I hope you like them! ^_^
