  1. Paint wood plaque. Set aside to dry.

  3. Glue foam letters face down on foam board to create stamp. Let dry completely.
  4. Mark top of foam board with ruler lines to indicate where lettering starts and stops. This will help with placement when stamping.
  5. Use brush to apply paint to stamp. Stamp onto wood plaque. Repeat stamping with different words and paint colors. Let paint dry.

I completed a similar project but used a plain linen fabric for the background on a wood stretched canvas. This wall,hanging with the words on the back looks very nice too, and layering the buttons gives it a lot of eye interest, and you could stack them three high if they are thin enough or have indentations to allow for it. Thanks for sharing!
