Wood State Plaque

wood home plaque

Want to show where your heart is, no matter where you live? With Joy letters, you can always celebrate wherever you call home. Can you guess which state I live in, just by the shape of this plaque?

I brushed the unfinished wood with chalk paints and pickling wash. Once the paint was dry, I then added letters to spell out the word "home" using a small craft iron. It gets hot enough to melt the adhesive on the letters and stick to the wood!  Classic Monograms were used for this project.  They are available in two different font styles and the white ones are dyable!

I love the way that these embroidered iron-on letters give texture to the sign that I couldn't get with just paint or vinyl lettering. It really gives the project an extra-special touch.

Check your local craft store for a wide variety of Joy® Iron-on, embroidered letters.  
They are available in different fonts, colors and sizes!
