decorative letters with confetti

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 have been loving the confetti trend in home decor and thought I would try my hand at it with some decorative letters.

This DIY 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.

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!

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 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.

Do you think this will work if the letters are painted black? I would like to do this for Halloween.

The tissue paper is going to look terrible on black paint - if you use black paint, use scrapbook paper of a medium thickness or greater. You'll have some texture to the letter, but otherwise you won't be able to see the confetti.
