Building Brick Name Sign

3:45 PM
My almost 9 year old (No, I'm really not old enough to have a 9 year old!) wants a LEGO room.  LEGO themed items are: 1. hard to find and 2. insanely expensive.  Enter mom, a Cricut, and mod podge.



I picked up some generic paintings at a fill a bag sale at the craft store.  I primed it and painted it to cover the ugly pictures.  Then, I used my Cricut to cut out the name from scrapbook paper.  This isn't the official LEGO paper, but I got 25 sheets for $2, so I have plenty to do everything.

I used mod podge to attach the letters and let dry.  Then I used regular Mod Podge to start to seal it.  I find that I get a thicker layer of sealer with regular mod podge under the hard coat and there's no stickiness from the mod podge regular formula.

Total cost?  50-ish cents.  It's hard to calculate with the fill a bag sale because I got waaaaay more than these pieces of wood.

Next up are vinyl wall decals and some custom photography.
