- wooden cut out letters (purchased mine from Michael's)
- newspaper or cardboard
- gold spray paint, or color of your choice
1. Place the wooden cut out letters upside down and spray paint the back. Spray paint a think coat first, keeping the can a few inches away from the letters. Allow about 15 minutes to dry in between coats. I applied two coats to the back. NOTE: Don't spray paint on a rainy and windy day. See the paint built up on the "P"?
2. When it's completely dry, turn the letters over and spray paint the front. I did about 3 light coats, making sure I got the sides of the letters.

3. Here's where you have a few options. Originally, I was just going to take my gold ribbon and nicely tie it around my letters and do a loop. Then, I tried making a loop with the ribbon first, and gluing it on the back of the letter with a hot glue gun. My handy husband watched as I did this, and suggested he drill a hole on the letter for me to loop the ribbon through. That idea crossed my mind, but I wasn't going to drill anything. So I let him try it on one, and it's just what I needed!
4. Loop the gold ribbon through the hole, and hang on the tree for all to see!
If you want, you can add gold glitter to give it that wow factor. I love how it sparkles next to the lights and adds a bit of personal touch to our Christmas tree.
