These are adorable! I think I am just going to try print the name in the font I like on card stock paper to make a template, if it turns out, I will go back and print the rest of the alphabet so I have them on hand the next time I need them and do have to try to remember what font I used.

I think these will make a nice addition to the all handmade basket of goodies I am making as Xmas gifts this year!

thanks for sharing with us

I am just guessing here-but if you had a cricut with the design studio, you can make cursive lettering like that, that isn't broken up. Does that make sense? Then use that as a template. Do you have any scrappin friends with a cricut?

Whenever I've tried to paint it doesn't look smooth for some reason, so I started buying chipboard letters (they have them in really cute prints, and there are several etsy sellers that have them that you can buy just the letters you want) and decoupaged them to the painted board. They turned out super cute IMO and looked better than my messy attempt at painting. Only problem with them is they're not all that big.

You can then use that as your guideline to hand paint over it. Does that make sense? HTH
I cant' wait to try this! Thanks!

Print out whatever you want it to look like in Word. Then, trace around it with a pencil (on the printed side of the paper). Then lay it printed side down on wherever you want it to go. Next, rub the pencil over the back side of the paper, covering every spot where you drew with the pencil on the front. The rubbing of the pencil on the back of the paper will make the pencil on the front side of the paper appear. Geez, I hope this makes sense! Let me know if it doesn't.

Hi I was just going to add to that if it is words or letters that you print out to "transfer" on by the pencil method....make sure you make it a mirror image before you print that way it will read the right way when you transfer it to your wood

LOL That was kind of an important step I forgot to mention! Thanks for adding it. I learned this trick from a friend of mine who is an interior designer. She uses it for any kind of wording she hand paints, and also uses a cheap mini projector to trace objects onto walls. I once used the projector to trace a picture of stick people someone else had drawn onto the walls on my office (I'm an elementary school social worker). I would joke with the kids that I even needed help drawing stick people! HA!

You could always use chipborad pieces.. they have them in the scrapbook section of hobby lobby. I use those. They have ones that have patters on them, plain colors, or you can paint your own

Any other tips on how to do it?
