Let's Do This!


Step 1:

  • A) Mix green paint with a bit of yellow and white. Paint the entire, front and sides, of a paint stirring stick.
  • B) Allowing an inch and half per Small Wooden Letter, measure out the appropriate spacing depending on your word. The max should be 6 letters.
  • C) Draw a straight line clearly marking the inch and a half sections.

Step 2:

  • A) On each marked line, apply Hot Glue.
  • B) Top the glue with the Jute, leaving a little tail on the left.
  • C) Wrap the twine under the right side and bring back around to the top of the left of the stick. Cross over the front of the stick so you have a double row of jute. Cut the end of the string, leaving a short tail.
  • D) Hot Glue the two tails on each end to the back of the stick.

Step 3:

  • A) Mix up two different shades of orange. One should be lighter and one should be darker. Alternately paint each letter with the orange colors. Let dry.
  • B) Hot Glue the letters to the paint stick.
