DIY Project: Mod Podge Foam Letters

Wheew! I'm almost done showing you the individual components of the baby showers I've been throwing lately. Tomorrow I will re-cap everything for you so you can get it all in one shot. Aren't we excited? 🙂

One fun, cheap, and easy project I did for the shower was Mod Podge foam letters spelling the baby-to-be's name for added decoration, as well as a hand-made gift for the soon-to-be mommy. It was so easy! 
I used coupons and went to Joann Fabrics to get everything on sale. The letters were on clearance for $0.60 each, plus I had an added coupon. 
****REMEMBER: Joann Fabrics accepts competitor's coupons! So print out your Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Hancock Fabrics, and whatever other crafts store coupons you have and take them to Joanne's! (You can find these on our coupons & deals page)****
Here's what you need:
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brushes (on sale right now at Michaels, 14 brushes for $1!)
  • Scrapbook paper of choice. I bought a new pack, but you could certainly use scraps of whatever you have lying around!

Here's how I did it:

It's sooo easy! You simply tear off the paper you want (the more imperfect, the better!), and adhere it with Mod Podge. That's it!
Put a little goop on the letters first, then put a lot more goop over the top of the scrapbook paper to create a nice seal.

It dries pretty quickly, so this project was completely done in no time. Made for a cute little addition to the food table, if you ask me!

 You can make your own letters out of cardboard, or you can buy different types of wood and cardboard letters from craft stores.

Fun, cheap, and easy…didn't I tell you?

Comments

  1. Where did you get the perfect cut foam letters at? And did they come in that color? I've been making my own with stencils and it's not as easy as I thought it would be.

  2. I just found them at Michael's craft store I believe. Maybe you could find some online if your local craft store doesn't have them?
