I made some awesome painted wood name letters when my daughter was born. Since the wooden letters came in packs of 2, I still had a whole other set of wooden letters spelling her name just sitting around waiting for creative inspiration. The inspiration finally struck, and I created new vibrant name letters using fabric and Mod Podge on wood.

I did a lot of Mommy DIY crafting in my daughter’s nursery, and my mom even made her a quilt with her fabric theme. It only seemed fitting to keep with the theme of her room when crafting these letters.  Hence, I’m using her quilt fabric.

I’m not a Mod Podge expert, but I want to show you what worked great for me in this quick tutorial!

How to Mod Podge Fabric on Wood

This is a really simple craft. First, I put Mod Podge on the front side of each of the letters. Make sure every bit of the wood is covered or else the fabric won’t stick.

I then stuck the letter to the back of the fabric.

Then, I put a layer of Mod Podge on top of the front side of the fabric. It helped when I used my finger to make sure the Mod Podge was spread all over and that the fabric was stuck on all parts of the wooden letter.

I let the letters dry overnight and then put another layer of Mod Podge on for good measure.

Once the second layer was dry, I used some tiny sewing scissors to cut around the shape of the wooden letter.  Ta-da!

Here’s what the finished product looks like with all the letters as well as a couple of wooden hearts I added!

I later ended up using these wooden letters for a DIY growth chart.  What do you think of the finished project? Any good project ideas you have for using Mod Podge on wood?
