Here’s what you’ll need:

-unprimed square wooden boards
-black craft paint or a black Sharpie paint pen
-gloss Mod Podge
-low-tack tape
-a print out of each letter (and the corresponding number score) on plain bond paper
-pencil

Start off by cutting the papers with the letters printed on them to match the size of your wooden boards–make sure the letters are in the center.

Next, on the back of each paper, heavily pencil in an outline of the letters and numbers printed on them. Once that’s done, tape each piece of paper to their corresponding wooden boards–the back part should be the side touching the surface of the wooden board. Then, take your pencil and outline the inked letters and numbers–this will create a faint stencil outline on the wooden boards.

When you’ve finished, take the pieces of paper off the wooden boards, paint over the pencil outlines with your black paint or Sharpie paint pen, and fill them in.

Allow the paint to dry–this should take at least 24 hours. Then, check to see if there are any remaining pencil marks on your wooden boards, and erase them with your pencil’s eraser.

Finally, apply two coats of gloss Mod Podge over each wooden board. Remember to let each coat dry before applying the next one.

And you’re done!
