I am a bit excited about Halloween. Has anyone noticed? Ha! Continuing on my out-of-control Halloween crafty preparations, I decided to make some festive fabric wrapped letters to complete my spooky mantle. We made ghosts to represent our family as a Family Home Evening (family night) activity using this tutorial. It was super fun, although our three year old was a bit TOO excited about it and kept knocking all of the ghosts over. So cute.
After putting our ghosts up on the mantle I decided that they needed a big, chunky “BOO” to complete their spooky look. So I bought some cardboard letters and used scraps of the Halloween fabric that I bought at JoAnn’s Fabric and Craft Store for a skirt that I made my baby girl. I am fairly thrilled with how it turned out, and it was very simple. Read on for super simple, step by step instructions.
1. Gather your supplies. You will need cardboard (or wooden) letters, fabric scraps, a paintbrush, scissors, and plenty of Mod Podge.
2. Begin by cutting long strips of your fabric. Next use Mod Podge to glue the end of one of your strips onto a cardboard letter and then wrap the fabric around the letter. Secure the other end of the letter with Mod Podge as well. Repeat until your letters are completely wrapped in fabric.
Wasn’t that easy?! Now go forth and create! Hopefully your work space isn’t as messy as mine…. Do you think I have enough projects going at once?
