I cut a 2x4 in different sized pieces. Painted them. I had to mix my colors because Bryon likes the dark colors so I had no pastels. Cut out some scrapbook paper and mod podged it on. Then painted the letters on. (I want a Silhouette!) I found some beachy clipart and glued them on.
Note to self....Paint letters on before modpodging. It took several coats of paint and you can still see streaks.
