If you’re using wooden letters, you’ll need some paint, some mod podge, and a little container of polyurethane (you coat this on top of all your pictures to give it a nice shine and protect your pictures), some sponge paint brushes and a good craft knife like one of these (makes it SO much easier to cut your pictures for clean edges).
These are the short steps:
First paint your wood letter and let it dry. While the paint is drying, use a good craft knife to cut out your pictures.
Next, apply mod podge to the wood letter and then place the cut out pictures on top so it will be glued on to the wood. After all pictures are placed and glued, let it all dry.
After it is completely dry, use a sponge brush and apply a thin coat of polyurethane over the top of the images and on all the painted wood areas.
