If you have been around here much (or even if you’ve never been here before and just looked at my blog header), you probably have figured out that I like watercolors. I have already tried watercolors on fabric, so it was only a matter of time until I tried them out on wood, right? Well, that day has arrived, and good news guys – it’s awesome.
A while ago I pinned a beautiful watercolor wood clock from Maker’s Society, and I couldn’t wait to try the technique out myself. I decided to apply to some wood letters to hang in my daughter’s new room.
Here’s what you need to make your own!
- 12 inch unfinished wood letters – I like the clean shape of these Darice letters. You can get them at Consumer Crafts or Amazon
- Watercolor Paints – tube or pan paints, even cheap kids’ paints will work
- Paper Towels
- Command strips for hanging
If you make your own letters, I would love to see them! Be sure to tag me on instagram or post them to my facebook page!

These are great! I have never thought of using regular old watercolors for painting wood. Thanks for the great tim!
