This snowflake-embellished “R” hangs from my side door each winter. I bought the wooden letter and white snowflakes at Michael’s and used the following tutorial to do the blue and white chevron pattern: http://2crafty4myskirt.blogspot.com/2013/05/how-to-tape-off-chevron-pattern.html?m=1.
The taping off went easily, but the cutting was a little challenging. CRAP ALERT: Because some paint got under the tape, my lines of demarcation between the colors were not perfect. I solved this by using a Sharpie to add black line between the colors. A blue and green combination has always been one of my favorite color pairings!
After hot gluing the snowflakes to the letter, I mixed fine silver glitter into a blob of ModPodge. I painted the ModPodge all over the letter and the snowflakes for a little glimmer.
To finish, I strung a blue ribbon through the R, tied a pretty bow, and hung it on my door. Piece of cake!
