I am in the process of moving my daughter into a big girl bed and decided that we need to spruce up her decor a bit for her big girl room. I wanted to come up with a decoupage idea that was easy but would look super cute.
I have been loving the confetti trend in home decor and thought I would try my hand at it with some decorative letters.
This confetti letter was so easy to put together, and I just love how it turned out. It’s so festive and fun for a kid’s room or nursery. It’s a perfect beginner craft if you’ve never used Mod Podge before!
You could change up the colors for a boy or even put one in an office or craft space – and of course, add a bunch of them if you like!
Letter Wall Decor
Here’s what you will need:
- Mod Podge Gloss (Matte would work as well)
- Foam Brush
- Tissue Paper
- Large Hole Punch
- Wooden Letter
- Craft Paint (optional)
It’s hard to tell from the photos, but the letter I used is huge. My mom gave it to me and although I loved the size, I did not love the color. So I gave it a few coats of bright white. You can paint your decorative letters any color you like.
You will need to work in small sections since the Mod Podge dries so quickly. Brush some Mod Podge on a section and then begin layering on your confetti.
I made my own confetti by using a large dime size round punch and tissue paper.
Start spacing out the confetti as you get closer to the bottom of the letter. Don’t forget to add some to the sides as well!
Brush on a layer of Mod Podge over the whole thing to seal it.
Hang your DIY confetti letter and enjoy! Make more decorative letters in just the same way. This letter wall decor is some of my favorite ever!
