Monogram Wooden Wagon Plaque DIY (4)

I made some paper decorations for the Fourth of July parade coming up and I couldn’t resist but add a little extra pizazz to our wagon we bought on Craigslist, hence my Monogram Wooden Wagon Plaque DIY. I actually had everything stalked in my craft room (I know I have a problem), so I didn’t have to go buy anything new. I only needed a few things.

Materials:

  • Wood Plaque (I think I bought this one at Walmart)
  • Wooden letter
  • Paint
  • Foam Brushes
  • Newspaper
  • Wood Glue or Other Adhesive

Here is a photo of the wagon before I painted it.

I painted the wooden sides with Krylon’s blue ocean breeze.

I had this wooden plaque and a wooden “w” for our last name which happen to fit perfectly on the back of the wagon.

I painted the plaque white with red trim and the “w” black.

Unfinished wood dries very quickly, so I was able to glue the letter on almost immediately.  I ended up using E6000 because it dries quickly and I find it works well. You can also use wood glue.

I removed the wooden back of the wagon and glued on the plaque to the back.

Here is the AFTER! I can’t wait to decorate it again for the Fourth of July parade.  In case you missed it, check out the easy paper decorations I made.
