Sand or wipe off letters as needed. Paint the outside and inside of each letter, overlapping the paint onto the front and back by at least ¼". Paint all sides of the letter holder. Let dry.
Choose as many prints as needed from the All Dolled Up stack. Once the paint is dry, trace both sides of your letters onto your desired prints. Cut out all letters and adhere them directly to their respective sides with decoupage glue.
Before embellishing your letters, measure up ¼" from the bottom of each letter and make a small mark with a pencil. This allows the letters to slide directly into the board when you are finished. Once this space is marked, embellish the front side of each letter by adhering the clear floral accent beads, making sure embellishments are above your ¼" line.
Cut pegs to desired height. Paint, let dry. Adhere pegs to letters with hot glue.
Finish off the letters by creating a mini banner. To do this, cut small flags and adhere them to a monofilament string. Embellish this banner with flowers and groupings of seed beads, attach them to your pegs, and enjoy.
