“SOUP” – Giant Wood Letters Above My Pantry


As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

One of my favorite things about my newly made-over pantry are these darling giant wood letters above my pantry doors that spell SOUP.

Here is how I made them:

  • Wood Letters- I used the Large 16 inch letters from Poppy Seed Projects
  • Mod Podge & Sponge Brush
  • Newspaper strips (I used strips without any pictures or larger fonts)
  • Craft Blade (such as an X-Acto knife)
  • Paint (I used a light blue color from the Martha Stewart craft paint line)
  • Stencil (I used a Martha Stewart craft stencil)
  • Stencil Sponge Brush

I just added newspaper to the front of each letter. I didn’t wrap the sides.

Let this dry completely before moving on to step 2.

Lift your stencil before the paint dries to get crisp lines.

Let this dry completely.

I used a couple Command Strips on the back of each letter to hang these and it worked out nicely! No worrying about lining up the nails and putting a bunch of holes in my wall!

Special thanks to Poppy Seed Projects for providing me with the wood letters I used for this project. Poppy Seed Projects sponsored The Glitter Academy’s Fall 2012 event and it could not have been as fabulous as it was without their help and donations!
