Decoupage Personalized Letter Ornaments
Gather These Supplies
- Mod Podge Gloss
- scrapbook paper
- wooden or paper mache initials
Step 1: First, you’ll need to trace your letter onto scrapbook paper and cut out. I got these letters from Michaels, but any craft store will have something similar. Don’t forget to cut a piece for the back side of your letter as well!
Step 2: Next, use your Mod Podge to attach your paper to your letters. For the back of each letter, insert a halved piece of twine or ribbon for hanging before Mod Podging your paper down.
Once you’re done, you’ll have this . . .
Add 2-3 coats of Mod Podge to seal, making sure to let your letters dry completely between coats.
Step 3: Now for the fun part! I used extra fine gold glitter for this, but whatever you have on hand will work.
What worked best for me was to lay a small pile of glitter on a piece of paper, add Mod Podge to a portion of my letter, and dip the letter in the glitter.
For the smaller nooks and crannies of the letters, where a foam brush couldn’t reach, use a small paintbrush or Q-tip to apply the Mod Podge.
Thank you so much for letting me share with you all today! You can find lots of other tutorials and inspiration on my blog. Have a lovely day!
