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.

  • Block Letters
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Glue
  • Paint (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Paintbrush

*Optional* 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.
