Tutorial; How to create zebra striped wooden letters

For today's post, I wanted to share an easy tutorial for creating your own zebra striped wooden letter accents. The wooden letters & paint can be purchased at your local craft store. I recently made these particular letters to use as a personalized embellishment for a project that I will share on here soon, but in the mean time, I invite you to try this technique for yourself, it's really cool, fairly simple and doesn't take very long.

Step #1- Paint wooden letters white (use 2-3 coats to ensure full coverage).

Step #2- Draw in stripes with pencil (lightly, but make sure the lines are visible to use as a guide).

Step #3- Fill-in stripes with a black paint using a very thin brush for detail (only one coat is necessary).

***Please allow paint to dry completely in between coats.
