Standing Joy

I like that name: Standing Joy. :-) Wanna make this??
You'll need:
Wood letters (found mine at A. C. Moore) 
Hot Glue/Wood Glue
Wine Corks
(sidenote: I used hot glue to attach the letters together but I just broke one by mistake.....perhaps wood glue instead?)

~Take your letters and glue them into the position you'd like them to be standing in with the hot glue. 
~Paint each letter individually.
~Use hot glue to attach the corks to each other to make a flat base. I glued mine while they were already on a flat surface to make sure that they'd be even. 

~Take one cork and slice out a rectangular shape that wide and long enough to fit the bottom letter into and hot glue it into place. 
Pretty simple, eh?? My favorite kind of project!!

I shared this project at these fantastic linky parties:
