I've come to LOVE things that are original.
Things that are unique and have meaning.
Things that you can't find at Target (not that I don't LOVE Target).
So I was recently inspired by my friend Whitney to make my very own paper mache letters. One for each of my girls. So while I can't say that this idea was totally mine, I will claim the blood, sweat and tears that went into making them. Just kidding. It was super easy!!
I painted the letter first, then decoupaged different scrapbook paper on, before adding the flowers. It took me less than an hour! If you're new to modge podge, get some helpful tips here. My friend Whitney, framed her letter & it looked SUPER cute, so of course I had to copy!
I made a second one for my younger daughter (because how fair would that be?) and plan on framing it too, once I move them into the same room.
Here's a close up. Not perfect at all, but no one seems to notice.
And here are some other letters that I came across.
Each with it's own personality & charm.
Have you painted or crafted any letters lately? Do share!!
