Hopefully, this craft project will ease the pain of an empty house after all your children have returned to school. (snort)
It's simple and easy and can be made with stuff laying around your house. It's nothing you haven't seem before, and I highly doubt you need a tutorial for it, but, I love PicMonkey, so your stuck with a bunch of photos walking you through this terribly intricate craft that I'm sure you can't live with out.
Start with some paper (wrapping, map, construction, etc..., Mod Podge, and an initial letter (which you can sometimes find in the dollar bin at Target).
Trace the letter.
Cut it out.
Rub it in place.
Place it on the mantel and continue to arrange your "back to school" mantel - COMING SOON.
(A ONE on the scale of 1-10 difficulty)
