[so cheap, so easy]: Dream Sign

I decided to make my DREAM sign after seeing the below image from Apartment Therapy. At first, I tried to find the numbers 05.31.01--our wedding anniversary. Unfortunately I couldn't find any numbers that I liked. Honestly, I didn't look very hard. I just moved on to plan B.  I don't like to waste time when I have an idea!  I was drawn to the  simplicity, and the structure and knew I could get the same effect with letters or numbers, so DREAM it was!

Once again, I used chip decor letters from Hobby Lobby. I love those letters! I painted the letters and the edges of MDF board, and then moved on to the Mod Podge--lots and lots of Mod Podge!

I used paper Mod Podge, a sponge brush, and strips of paper from a magazine. I wanted all text and no pictures, so I did have to cut most of the pages to size.

I Mod Podged each piece of paper from left to right covering the wood with Mod Podge and then adhering the paper. I smoothed down the paper with a gift card as I went along to get rid of any bubbles. Once the board was dry, I hot glued the letters. That's it! Easy peasy!
