Half Price Dollar Store Craft

I'm not sure if you can make a craft any cheaper...well maybe free. I found some wood word letters at the dollar store for...............................................HALF PRICE, that's .50 each. The only ones they had left were FAITH, PRINCESS, AND COUNTRY. I happened to have black spray paint and scrapbook paper scraps on hand so that didn't cost me anything.
I started off by spraying the whole thing black.

I then cut the scrapbook paper in the letter shapes (I actually layed the letters on the paper and trace them then cut them out.) I then glued the paper to the wood. Ta Da, all done, so easy!

Black and white, my current favorite color palette, who would have thought?

I saw the cool sign you made for Momza. Do you do this as a business? Or are you interested in doing it? Please let me know either way, okay?
