Learn how to make this DIY Seasonal Home Decor.
When you’re ready to take down the Halloween cobwebs and decorate for autumn, you will fall in love with this Fall Home Décor. This simple craft can be done for different seasons, just by changing the letters, the fabric, and the floral decor. So why not make one…or two and give one as a gift to someone special.
● Paper Mache Letters (any size, I used 8 1\2 inches)
● Floral (flowers, leaves, pinecones, baby’s breath, etc.)
● Glue (Mod Podge® works best for the letters)
● Fabric Scissors
● Other Materials (yarn, glitter, old jewelry or bling). Be creative, as it’s yours to personalize.
● Cardboard – one piece for each letter (this is the base for the letters and décor materials).
● Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: Prep your letters. Cut fabric around the letter leaving an inch on each side. I covered my letters with fabric, but you can use any medium to cover them. After cutting the fabric for each letter, iron it to remove the wrinkles.
Step 2: Cover the back side of each letter with Mod Podge® glue (Tip: You can also use white glue, but you will need to thin it down with water 60% glue-40% water ratio). Place your fabric on top and smooth down (I use an old plastic card to do this). Only do one side of the letter at a time, so they can dry, preferably overnight. Do the other side when the glue is dry. After attaching the fabric, add one more coat of Mod Podge® to even out the look. Let them dry completely before attaching them to the base.
Step 3: Prep the base. Using square pieces, cut the fabric to cover the base and glue down. You can use hot glue for this, as it is a time saver.
Step 4: Gather your décor. Attach the letter to the base using hot glue. Start adding your floral, rocks, bling, etc. You can also use yarn and wrap your letters, as this will give them more texture.
Now you can decorate any room in your house with these beautiful fall letters.
