Check it out. I know you've all seen them before, but I've finally gotten around to making one of my own.
I ordered a wood letter from Craftcuts.com. I chose a font that I hadn't seen someone work with before, and I got it about 15" tall and only 1/4" thick. It was less than $10 shipped to my door. The quality is great and it is very sturdy, especially considering it is so thin. Shipping was super fast too. From order to delivery was only 4 days and I paid for the cheapest shipping available, cuz that's how I roll.
I bought the SuperMoss Instant Green Sheets at JoAnn's with a 50% coupon. The moss was less than $7.50 for the massive sheet and I had TONS left over at the end of the project. I'm thinking I may order a letter when it gets closer to the holidays and make a letter for my parents or my father-in-law.
I used glue sticks I already had at home.
I flipped the letter over and positioned the letter so I would have a little waste as possible. The I cut the moss so I would just have to wrap it around the letter and glue. This is a super easy project. When I make the ones for Christmas, I think I'll have the kids help me. SUPER. EASY.
When I glued, I started with all the ends and the big corners, then I finished with the rest.
I added the white ribbon and hung it by the front door. I love it!
Next time I order from Craftcuts.com, I'm going to get a few different letters for a few projects to save on shipping. Not too shabby for less than $20.
