INSTRUCTIONS

DIY: Crossword Initial

If you are adding hidden words to your design like ours,  separate them out first.  

DIY: Crossword Initial

Apply a small amount of mod podge to the top of your initial.  I found working in batches of 3 rows was easiest

DIY: Crossword Initial

Mod podge takes a few minutes to dry, so you have time to adjust the letters to your liking.  Once they are set, allow to dry for a few minutes before beginning the next set of rows

DIY: Crossword Initial

Don't forget to allow room for your hidden words.  Plan it carefully so you don't run out of room.

Allow to dry and hang!
