Ever since I started getting into DIY home decor many years ago I’ve loved incorporating typography into my space. Which is why I’m so pumped about today’s project, this quote wall art made out of two-tone wooden letters. And here’s the best part – there’s no taping required to mask off the spray paint! Keep reading to check out my easy trick.

Add some character to your walls with two-tone wooden letters arranged into a fun quote!

Here’s what you’ll need for your quote wall art:

  • CraftCuts Unpainted Letters [Bodoni Bold Libre Font, with template]
  • Montana Gold spray paint in at least two colors
  • Command Poster Strips
  • Scrap cardboard
  • Pencil (not pictured)
  • Tape to hold up the template (not pictured)
  • Level (not pictured)

The first step is to paint the fronts of the letters. Use multiple thin coats of spray paint. Let the letters dry thoroughly.

Next, flip the letters over so the fronts are laying face-down (and perfectly flat) on the cardboard. Use a piece of scrap wood or other implement to hold the letter in place, and spray the edges of the letters in the contrasting paint color. When you flip them over later, they’ll be perfectly painted with two tones – no painter’s tape required!

CraftCuts makes it easy on you by giving you the option to use a mounting template. Head over to my blog to find detailed instructions on how to mount the letters on the wall, as well as closeups of the final product!
