HOME is where the Heart is

I took advantage of some free time I had this weekend and got to finish a couple projects that I had been wanting to work on.  We had a space in our entryway that needed some decorating. The top of the storage unit was just too bare and needed a little something to prevent it from becoming a drop zone for clutter.

Here is what I came up with.....

I purchased the wood letters and base from Michaels, they were white so I used some craft paint and painted the letters and stand black.  I had traced the letters on the back of some heavier weight scrapbook paper and cut them out prior to painting.
Once the letters were dry, I used Mod Podge to stick the paper on the wood letters.  I put a thin layer of mod podge directly on the painted letter and then placed the paper on the letter.  I painted an additional two coats of mod podge over the paper and let i dry,
This was defintely a quick and easy project, the longest part was waiting for things to dry!

Hi and welcome to Jess & Boo.  Here you will find quality handmade items for babies, Moms and Home.

I have developed Jess & Boo out of a love for creating and crafting which I have done for many years.  After having my first child Jessica I wanted to share some of the things I make and with the support of family and friends the idea for selling my crafts came to life.

This blog will showcase some of my creations. Stay tuned!
