There is a store in Midvale called the Wood Connection. They sell unfinished wood furniture. They also have a separate little craft store. It is my favorite store ever!!! Since I don't have all the tools to cut and make the crafts I want, I go there and buy them already cut out. Then I finish them. There website is www.thewoodconnection.com and they are just off 7200 South and 300 West.
For the Madi letters I painted them white, cut some scrapbook paper to fit, glued it on and added my embellishments. There are several different ways to do things and I love making each one different. Hope you can find something fun you like there too.
