Mod Podge letter

So this little project is nothing new and awesome and super creative but it's the latest thing I've finished... I just bought a plain wooden 'R' from JoAnne's and mod podged it... I needed something small for one more space in the nursery...
One thing you do need to do is pick the paper you like, then flip it over, right side down... and flip over your letter so it's backwards... the trace it with a pencil and cut it out...
then when your done, flip them both over and they should match up...
I painted the edges white... I think to go dark would have been super cute too, more of a contrast...
then I took some turquoise and rubbed it along the edges...
when that's all dry I took my paper and mod podged it on...
then rubbed the edges with sand paper to trim off excess paper, and rough it up a little while smoothing it too ha ha...

I then couldn't decide how to finish it... I tried a few different looks...
BIRDS?
PLAIN?
or these cute button things...


I went with the plain look although I really liked the buttons too, so I may add them if I get bored of the plain... I hung it right above the light switch when you first walk in the room, it looks great! Just what this space needed!
