I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers decorating paper mache letters lately. I love all the different designs they come up with. I bought this letter T from Joanne Fabrics for my first name a few months ago. You can also find them at Michael’s and online. I finally got around to decorating it. I wanted something that would match the fun colors in my craft room.
I decided to paint it a hot pink color and embellish it with bright green polka-a-dots. I put two coats on it and let it dry in between coats. Since I like using things I already have around the house I decided to use milk bottle cap. I dipped it in the paint that I poured onto a paper plate. I also thought it would be fun to decorate the letter with stripes or a flower stamp. You could also decoupage it with photos or pictures from a magazine. The possibilities are endless!
As you can see, I have it on top of my paper organizer that I got at a rummage sale. I think it brightens up the room. What do you think? Have you ever decorated paper mache letters?
