What You'll Need:

  • Crafter's Closet Acrylic Paint Set
  • Crafter's Closet Premium Paint Brushes
  • Crafter's Closet Paint Mixing Palette

  • Crafter's Closet Hot Glue Gun
  • Crafter's Closet Hot Glue Sticks
  • Crafter's Closet Wood Letters & Shapes
  • Ruler

  • Wooden Paint Stirring Sticks

Let's Do This!


Step 1:

  1. Mix green paint with a bit of yellow and white. Paint the entire, front and sides, of a paint stirring stick.
  2. Allowing an inch and half per Small Wooden Letter, measure out the appropriate spacing depending on your word. The max should be 6 letters.
  3. Draw a straight line clearly marking the inch and a half sections.


Step 2:

  1. On each marked line, apply hot glue.
  2. Top the glue with the Jute, leaving a little tail on the left.
  3. Wrap the twine under the right side and bring back around to the top of the left of the stick. Cross over the front of the stick so you have a double row of jute. Cut the end of the string, leaving a short tail.
  4. Hot Glue the two tails on each end to the back of the stick.


Step 3:

  1. Mix up two different shades of orange. One should be lighter and one should be darker. Alternately paint each letter with the orange colors. Let dry.
  2. Hot Glue the letters to the paint stick.
