Paige Hemmis is combining crossword puzzles and art with this creative DIY.

  • Vinyl letters (be sure to get properly sized letters for your specific squares)
  • Hanging strips (or saw-toothed hangers)
  • Ruler
  • Pencil

1. Measure and mark the center of your wooden square, so that your letters are perfectly centered.

2. Attach your vinyl letters to your wooden squares, based on what words you want to make.

• TIP: If wooden squares are non-painted or non-treated, vinyl letters will stick better. If they ARE painted/treated, use sandpaper to rough up the wooden square before attaching vinyl.

3. Use hanging strips or saw-toothed hangers to hang letters onto wall, based on the crossword design you desire.

4. OPTIONAL: Add embellishments, if desired
