Transform wood or cardboard letters into DIY room decor. Kids Crafts by Three Sisters shows you how easy it is to personalize any letter with a little paint and scrapbook paper. Display the final result on a shelf or hot glue raffia / ribbon to the back as wall or door decor.
In the spirit of our summer themed scrapbook paper, we made the bottom of our letters resemble grass by using the FolkArt ® Painted Finishes – Dark Moss. The texture is so realistic, it really is like bringing the outside in our house 😉

Hey, if a 7 & 9 year old can do it…SO CAN YOU!
STEP 1: Trace your letter onto the scrapbook paper.
STEP 2: Cut our your letter and trim about 1/3 off the bottom of your letter. We do this because we'll apply the moss finish to the bottom to create a grass effect.
STEP 3: Paint the edges of your letter a similar color to the background of your scrapbook paper. This gives the room letter a 3-dimensional effect.
STEP 4: After the paint is dry. Glue the scrapbook paper to the wood or cardboard letter.
STEP 5: Using the Folk Art ® Painted Finishes Brushes, apply the Moss Painted Finish to the top and sides of the letter.
STEP 6: Paint a white line to across the letter to separate the moss from the scrapbook paper.
STEP 7: Hot glue raffia or ribbon to the back of the letter to hand on a door or wall OR display it on a shelf!
