Car Wash Sponge
Car Wash Sponge

We get this sponge from Dollar Tree. Take this sponge and cut it into rectangle shaped pieces with large scissors. These pieces work great to paint your pieces by dipping the sponge into the paint, dabbing paint onto a piece of scrap paper and then lightly dabbing up and down on your pieces. Great coverage!

Paint Roller Set from Dollar Tree
Paint Roller Set from Dollar Tree

We bought this set for $1.25 from Dollar Tree. From it we use the paint roller and tray. If you have a larger piece to paint or a project that use a main color, we roll on the color. Squeeze paint into the tray, roll into the paint, roll off most of the paint. You want to go to your piece with a light coat of paint. Two light coats of paint are always better. Roll over letters and wooden pieces lightly.
