3

Add designs of your choice to each letter. I did stripes and dots.

4

To do stripes you may freehand or apply scotch tape to guide you. If using tape be extremely careful when peeling off so you don't scuff your basecoat.

5

To apply dots use the end of your brushes handle to dip in the paint and then press onto your letter. Do not push too hard or the handle will leave a dry spot in the middle of your dot

6

Allow about 30 minutes for your design to dry then add a second coat if desired.

7

Allow the letters to dry overnight.

8

Now you're ready to hang!

9

Draw an arched line on your wall with a pencil at desired level using a piece of yarn or string and tape

10

Tape the string to the wall in an arch shape. Next, trace a line above the string using it as a guide.

11

Make pencil marks on your arched line about 2 in apart or depending on your letters' thickness 3 in may be necessary.

12

Now hammer small nails to hold your letters to the wall.

13

You 're all set to hang your letters! Hang your letters to spell a child 's name or last name as a decorative wall piece. :) enjoy your finished art !
