Day 15 of 21 Days of Creativity- DIY Dorm Week
Everyone loves a good block letter message, right?! I know I do. Most DIY projects using block letters only require you to paint them. However, with some scrapbook paper and glue, you can take your block letters to the next level.
You can find all of these materials at your local art and craft stores. I purchased an “S” and “N” for the first letters of my name and my sister’s name. These block letters are for a table in our room.
Before following the instructions below, I painted the edges of my “S” a different color from my block letter’s original color. Feel free to do the same!
Take a sheet of scrapbook paper and place it right side down. Lay one block letter, face down on the paper.
Trace the outline of your letter.
Cut the outlined letter from the scrapbook paper.
Paint a thin layer of glue onto the front of your block letter.
Place the paper letter on the glue. Carefully smooth the paper onto the block letter with your finger. Allow time for the block letter to dry.
Repeat the previous steps with any remaining block letters.
Now decorate! Place your block letters on top of your bookshelf, dresser or stack of textbooks. You can even hang them from the wall!
