How to make Rhinestone Letters
A big wooden letter (I got the "K" from Hobby Lobby)
You will need rhinestones (I bought a bag of them from Hobby Lobby)
White primer (optional)
White spray paint
I first primed the "K" and let it dry. You don't have to prime it. This step is completely optional...I just think it looks more even, especially on the side.
I let the primer dry and then took it outside and I spray painted the "K" with white spray paint (any brand will work).
I place the rhinestones on the "K". I like to put them on the "K" before I glue them on so I can see if I like the arrangement.
Once I got the rhinestones in the placement I liked (as shown above). I then glued each rhinestone in it's place.
Let it dry completely.
Your letter is ready to display. These letters are so easy to make and all of my daughter's friends want me to make them one.
Here's another way to do the wooden letter with scrapebook paper and rhinestones
You will need:
Scrapbook paper - 2 pages
Latex white paint
2 foam paint brushes
Here's the wooden letter I used.
I painted the border of the letter S with Behr Premium Plus Latex Ultra Pure White Paint. However, any white latex paint will work.
This is what it looked like after painted the border.
I then turned the "S" over and put the scrapbook paper in place on the top and bottom of the wooden letter and traced it with a pencil.
I cut out the "S" I traced. I cut on the inside of the pencil so the scrapbook paper wasn't too big and hang over the edge.
Here are the 2 parts of the scrapbook pages cut out.
Then I used Mod Podge to glue the scrapbook papers to the wooden letter (with a foam paint brush). I also put Mod Podge on the top of the scrapbook paper to seal it.
Then put the ribbon on top of the wooden letter and then cut it to fit. I used fabric glue to glue the ribbon on to the wooden letter. I originally used Elmer's glue to glue the fabric on the scrapbook paper, but it didn't lay flat so I took it off and glued it with fabric glue. Much better!
Then I used Elmer's Glue to adhere the rhinestones around the border of the letter "S". This is the final product. The Elmer's glue works great, but there is also a craft glue that is specifically for gluing rhinestones on things. It is a much strong glue, but I think Elmer's glue is sufficient for this project.
