Easy-to-Create Letter Display

Spell out L-O-V-E or any word using inexpensive chipboard or wood letters covered in decorative paper. Use finished letters to create a banner or mantel display.

Materials Needed:

  • chipboard letters
  • scrapbook paper
  • nail file
  • ink stamp
  • foam brush
  • mod podge

Attach Paper to Chipboard

Trace the chipboard letter on the backside of the patterned paper, and cut out paper with scissors or craft knife. Use a foam brush to apply mod podge to the paper letter and adhere it to the chipboard letter. Allow to dry. Use emery board to smooth edges and remove any excess paper from letter.

Antique the Edges

Stamp a small ink pad around the edges to give the letters a worn look. Use ribbon to hang letters as a banner or use as a display on a mantel or table.
