Start by cutting off the top of each cardboard letter with the cutting blade. Make sure the letter is in the correct direction before cutting each side.

To give this project a more finished look I chose to paint it in a metallic color. I was trying to achieve the rustic metal look and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Use your preferred color and paint all the letters.

With the scissors cut the grass mats into small bunches.

Add glue to the inside of the letter let it sit a few seconds so it can get sticky.

Place some grass on the glue and continue this process by adding glue and grass to the entire letter.
