Festive Holiday Letter Board

Letter boards are having a major moment right now.  I keep seeing them all over Instagram and in the stores.  So, naturally I have been convinced I also need one. So funny how that happens.  I started having letter board FOMO!

I was lucky to find a letter board (on sale!) at Michael’s for $7.  Whoop!  It was like it was meant to be.  I grabbed that baby so fast and was super pumped to get it home and start playing with it.  Obviously the holidays are upon us so the debut of my new letter board had to be festive.  I arranged my letters in a sorta-circle shape to give it a little more character.  When I was finished arranging them, I felt like my board needed something else.  

I remembered I had my Merry and Bright Shaker Card Kit from Queen & Co and thought the light shaped ornament was just what my letter board needed.  Eek! So much excitement!  I ended up cutting my light ornaments out of felt since I thought they would fit in nicely kostenlos with the felt on my letter board.  I definitely think this little addition is just what my board needed.

I can’t wait to really put this bad boy to good use.  My mind is spinning of all the ways I can use this $7 investment.  I’m sure you’ll be seeing more appearances from my letter board. Super pumped!

Supplies:

  • Letterboard
  • Red Felt
  • Merry and Bright Shaker Card Kit
  • Die Cutting Machine
  • If you don’t have the above kit, you’ll need a marker and scissors
  • Bakers Twine
  • Tape

Step 1: Arrange your letters on your letter board.

Step 2: Cut out your light ornaments from your felt using the dies and a die cutting machine.  If you don’t have either of these, use your marker to hand draw an ornament on your felt.  Then, use your scissors to cut it out.

Step 3: Cut a piece of baker’s twine and run it through the tops of your lights.

Step 4: Arrange your lights at the top of your letter board.

Step 5: Finally, wrap your baker’s twine behind your letter board and secure with a piece of tape.  That’s it.  Enjoy!
