Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for neither the spray paint nor the glue.
  • 2
    Find a well-ventilated area and cover nearby items with drop cloths or old sheets to protect them from spray mist.
  • 3
    Sand each of the letters using 220-grit sandpaper. (Tip: sand in the direction of the grain for best results.)
  • 4
    Remove sanding dust by lightly dragging the cloth against the surface.
  • 5
    Apply White primer to the surface. Hold the paint can 10 to 16 inch from the surface. Press the spray button and begin covering the surface in a steady back and forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke.
  • 6
    Apply two more more light strokes a few minutes apart. (Tip: it is better to add multiple light coats as opposed to one heavy coat.)
  • 7
    Apply a top coat after one hour or within 24 hours.
  • 8
    Once dry, repeat steps 5 through 7 except this time, use Apple Red. Allow to dry for two hours.
  • 9
    Super glue the letters as shown or as desired.
  • 10
    Allow the glue to dry for about 2 hours.
  • 11
    Once dry, cut a piece of ribbon that is the appropriate length for how you want the letters to hang from the wall. Glue the ribbon you chose to the back and hang the project.
