    Step 1:

    1. Paint four wood blocks with the black chalkboard paint. Let dry.
    2. Paint wood letters with the black chalkboard paint. Let dry.


    Step 2:

    1. Lay out the letters to spell GRAD. Run a strip of painter’s tape across the letters so the bottom edge of the tape leaves about 2/3 of the letter exposed.

    1. Coat the bottom of a letter with deco podge.
    2. Sprinkle silver glitter on the wet deco podge.
    3. Shake off the loose glitter. Remove the tape.

    Step 4:

    1. Hot glue the letters to the wood blocks so that they stand.
