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 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:

White wooden letter P

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.

Applying Mod Podge to a white wooden letter with a foam brush

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!

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.
