DIY Rainbow Letter Board + The Best Dolly Parton Quotes

Well hello there! Today we are celebrating Dolly Parton who will be turning 73 this Saturday, January 19. Is there a person on the planet who doesn't like Dolly? Is that even possible?!? Not only are we bringing you four of our favorite Dolly Parton quotes, but we are bringing you this adorable rainbow letter board DIY. This is a Savannah genius idea. And as soon as she told me about it, I said yes, we must have this.

What we love about Dolly is she doesn't take herself too seriously, and she is proud of who she is. She doesn't seem to care what people think of her and carries herself with such confidence. She came from nothing and through talent + determination she is a record breaker. She seems kind and down to earth while being uber famous.

1. Cover the felt on your letter board in a layer of mod podge. It's feels a little strange when you start painting it on, but once you get the first layer down it'll be easier.

Add a second layer of mod podge if needed. Hint: you probably will need a second coat.

2. Cover the frame in painter's tape so you don't get paint on it.

3. Figure out what colors you want your rainbow to be before actually painting colors on your letter board. I just used a piece of computer paper to try different combinations.

4. Once you settle on your colors, cut out the top layer of the stencil so that your paper is a rainbow shape. Place the rainbow down on your letter board and make sure it's right in the middle.

5. Take your background color and start paint the open felt while using one hand to hold the paper in place.

6. Remove the stencil and your background will be painted.

7. Cut out the next layer of the rainbow.

8. Place the stencil back on your letter board, right in the middle. You should have a strip of white felt uncovered.

9. Use a paintbrush to start filling in the border of the stencil with your next paint color and make sure your other hand is holding the stencil in place.

10. Once you've completed painting the border you can remove the stencil and then fill in the rest of the white stripe with your paint brush.

11. Repeat those steps until you have completed all stripes of the rainbow and then fill in the middle section with the same background color.

Remove your painter's tape and let your felt dry over night. Then it's ready to use!
