Pinteractive: YUM

I saw a pin similar to this back in November and immediately ran out to buy supplies. It all sat, tucked away in a basket of my craft stuff, until today. That's the beauty of this Pinteractive thing -- ya gotta get stuff done, yo! 

I was going to do "EAT," but at the craft store I realized that I don't need to be reminded to eat. I do plenty of that. I decided to go with "YUM" instead. 

I chose some kitchen-themed scrapbook paper.


I traced each letter with a pencil and then carefully cut them out. If I were less lazy and more crafty, I'd have used an Exacto knife, but alas.

My original plan was to Mod Podge the scrapbook paper to the wooden letters, like I did with an initial for Em's room. Re-reading the tutorial that accompanied the pin today, though, I decided to try some spray adhesive I had instead. I didn't take any pictures of those steps because I worked quickly to spray, align and press the paper and letters. 

Here's the finished product, though! 

As Em would say, "TA DA!"


Here they are, hung up in our eat-in kitchen. 

I like reading it in the reflection - YUM, YUM!

  1. Turned out great!

  2. Love how your letters turned out! I gotta try something crafty for next week...

  3. So cute. I didn't get around to being pinteractive unfortunately (wedding planning overload) but I did talk about this with my girlfriends.

  4. We have Eat up in our kitchen. I did it way before it became popular - 5 years ago ;-). I still love it. They are all different styles, but all are painted white against my red walls.

  5. That's so awesome!!! I'm definitely doing this!

  6. oh that looks so cute, and love it right next to the mirror, so great.

  7. I heart the finished product, especially the reflection word changer!! :)

    Great job, buddy!

    Don't think I'm gonna get anything done today seeing how I took all day on Monday learning how to hem Huz's suit pants with my new sewing machine and blind hem foot! SUCH a novice I am!

  8. Very cute! I finally caved and have become addicted to Pinterest for the past month. We recently moved, but once I get more settled I plan on accepting your challenge and actually doing one of the projects I've added to my board, aptly titled "Crafts I love, but will never do."
