Toddler Jeep Theme Room - The "JEEP" Letters!

Stage two of the Jeep room for my three-and-a-half-year-old son Robert - Decoupaged Letters for his wall! This was a fun and easy project that did not cost a lot of money. The 12 inch letters were purchased on sale at Joann's with the 12x12 scrapbook paper and the decoupage glue and sponge brushes. Total cost was under $20.

First of all I have to tell all you "Jeep" enthusiasts that I know it's "Jeep" and not "JEEP". All they sell are the capitol letters in the 12 inch size so I had to do it this way! Please forgive me...

Step 1 - Paint the edges of the letters. I used the left over blue that my husband used as the accent color on two of his walls.

Step 2 - Trace the letters onto the back of the 12x12 scrapbook paper and cut them out.

Step 3 - Paint on the decoupage glue and stick the paper to the letters.

Step 4 - After the letters are dry paint two coats of the decoupage glue on top of the scrapbook paper letting the first coat dry completely before applying the second. (Just follow the directions on the decoupage glue bottle).

Step 5 - Hang the letters on the wall! As for the tire tracks, I will have to credit my husband for coming up with that!!
