Beveled Christmas NOEL Letter Art

A couple of months back I purchased some craft supplies from Consumer Crafts. Trying to think ahead for the holidays I grabbed some paper mache letters and a small wreath garland to make a NOEL display, but of course time slipped away from me and I’m just now getting to this project!

Here are the supplies I used:

  • N, E and L paper mache letters (only $2.27 each)
  • Small pine wreath ($2.27)
  • Pure White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Dark and clear Annie Sloan wax
  • Paint brush

I first started by creating a beveled design on my paper mache letters with the Elmer’s glue. I kinda just went with it, not really mapping out a design ahead of time.

I let the glue dry and then coated the letters with the white paint mixed with a little bit of water so it went on smoothly.

Next I mixed some dark and clear wax and applied it to the painted letters. The dark wax really made the beveled designs pop out from the white paint.

And that’s it! Pretty simple project that really didn’t take me too long to create at all. And the entire project with new supplies cost me less than $10. Gotta love that!

    I did something similar but made my letters out of pieces of cardboard i cut out with an exacto and wrapped with jute – the dollar store also has some decent little wreaths like that!
