First I started with 2×4’s and a saw. Since I wasn’t working with a pattern I had a lot of wiggle room. I decided to make the letters two feet tall.
Then using my mad saw skills I cut the boards to create the letters of their first names.
I cut the left corner of the middle part of the “s” to match the rest of the letter. But I did that after I took this picture.
I then painted both letters a base coat of white paint. After the white paint was dry, I added the cute little zebra stripes using black paint.
