Faux Vinyl Door Numbers

You don’t necessarily have to own a vinyl cutter to create your own lettering for projects such as door numbers.
I created CUTE numbers for my door with
PAPER and MODGE PODGE!!!

Yeppers…that’s right…plain 'ol paper and Modge Podge. EASIE PEASIE!
Check it out!
Door 1
Using WORD or another word processor program…print out your desired text or numbers in a light gray color. The light gray color allows for easier cutting! You could also use a darker color if you will be placing your text or numbers on a light background.

Door 2
Grab your scissors (the sharper the better) and start cutting!!!
Door 3
Door 4
Next, dab Modge Podge on the back of each number or letter to place on desired object. **NOTE: I used painting tape to create a STRAIGHT line to work with. I tend to get a tad whopper-jarred with things like this!**
Door 5
After attaching and aligning my numbers I started MODGING away! I applied two coats just to seal the deal and prevent wear from the weather and sun!
FA REEEEEELZ! You gotta love this!!!

P.S. If you like my dandy tissue paper wreath...you can check this post out to see how I made it and where I found the idea and tutorial!
