The Easiest Way to Make Comic Book Letters

Use your favorite comic books (or copies) and Mod Podge to make these easy comic book letters! Perfect for budget friendly wall decor.

Skills Required: Beginner. It helps to have some experience with Mod Podge as comic books or color copies of them have the potential to wrinkle.

The Easiest Way to Make Comic Book Letters

If you’re looking for budget friendly wall decor, and you love comic books, this is a project you’re going to love: comic book letters!

This comic book craft is so easy to do . . . you don’t have to be a Mod Podge expert to try it.

One thing that may have you hesitating is that you don’t want to cut up your beloved comic books. Well don’t fear!

You can make color copies of your favorite pages (I highly recommend laserjet for no bleeding) and then decoupage away.

This is perfect for anyone that is obsessed with comic books . . . and also likes their own name. Learn how to make it below.

How to Make Comic Book Letters

Gather These Supplies

  • Wood letters to spell the name/saying of your choice
  • Mod Podge Gloss or Matte
  • Acrylic paint (to paint the edges of the letters)
  • Comic books or laserjet copies
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Craft knife and mat
  • Command strips (for hanging)

Give the edges of the wood letters a little touch of paint. You can use any color you like – we used black. Let dry.

Comic book pages cut into smaller pieces and a pair of orange handled scissors

Cut your comic books or color copies into “bite-sized” pieces. You’re going to collage them on the front of the letter.

Adding Mod Podge to a comic book page with a paintbrush

Add Mod Podge to the back of the comic book pieces and then to the front of the letter . . .

Adding a second coat of Mod Podge to the top

You need to add a coat of Mod Podge on top (or two) to seal your letter. Repeat this process with the other letters.
