Originally she had planned to wrap the letters in yarn, but once she started she passed it on to me and told me if I didn't get to it to toss the whole project because she never wanted to look at them again ;) I know the feeling...these little letters from this baby shower took me 2 hours each!
I decided to bag the yarn and spray paint the letters...it took me 5 minutes. 2 coats plus drying time.
Then I bought a lace table cloth from Goodwill, laid it on top of the letters and sprayed with white paint. I quickly lifted the table cloth abracadabra style and voila! The paint did get a little blurry in some spots so I suggest an assistant to help lift the lace. I love the way they turned out and so much easier then yarn!
