Decorative letters to make

Pretty letters

To make: Buy a selection of papier-mâché or wooden three-dimensional letters. We used papier-mâché letters. Paint your letters in desired colour – we used a test pot of Farrow & Ball Cornforth White. Trace around the letter onto printed paper and cut out. To obtain a flat finish, use spray glue to stick the paper to the front of the papier-mâché letter. Place a heavy book on top to ensure the paper sticks evenly.

Papier-mâché letters from Hobbycraft. Paint from Farrow & Ball. Scrapbooking and wrapping paper, from craft shops.
