Instructions
1. Squirt the metallic acrylic paint onto the palette and paint all the twigs. Allow to dry.
2. Lay twigs onto the MDF wood letter to check the sizing needed for each twig. Alternate the direction of the twigs so those on the serif of the letter are horizontal and those on the remaining portion of the letter are vertical.
3. One at a time, cut off any excess portion of a twig that hangs over the edge of the letter with garden pruners.
3. Place a strip of hot glue onto the letter and press a twig into the glue.
4. Continue measuring twigs, cutting off the excess, applying hot glue and pressing down into the glue until the entire letter is covered.
