I love the idea of taking a plain jane crafting item, in this case, simple paper mache letters, and turning it into something awesome. And, yes, these letters are easily improved by pulling out the good ole Mod Podge, but I wanted to do something a bit more….
paper mache letter
Step 1: Gather your materials. Using a sharp knife (and keeping your fingers out of the way!), carefully and slowly slice off the top layer of your letter. I used a bread knife, and it took about a minute or so. And, again, be careful! I don’t want to be responsible for any crafting-related ER visits:)
Step 2: Using a butter knife (what is it with me and my use of knives in this project?), slice off pieces of your floral foam to insert into your letter. Hot glue these pieces firmly in place.
Step 3: Take your fake florals and snip off the flowers, leaving about an inch or so of stem. Start placing them into your foam. As you can see, I started with the larger daisies, and then filled in with the smaller flowers.
Cute, right? This is going to go over Eleanor’s crib in an off-white oval frame. I can’t wait to get it up!
Thanks for reading!
