A while ago I came across this project from I Heart Naptime
These letters make such a nice decoration that I decided to make some for Christmas. Mine are just plain with no embellishment as the mantel will get decorated closer to Christmas.
There were really simple to make. I painted some carboard letters (from local Hobbycraft store) with red acrylic paint. Then glued on some scrapbook paper. The edges are finished by pressing a mini red ink pad all around the letter.
