This is beautiful! You only used posterboard and not a paper mache letter? How did you get the shape of the B? And how big is this?

Sorry for so many questions. I have been wanting to do letters for the church doors too, but hadn’t really seen anything I liked. I LOVE THIS! And I’m using purple hydrangeas as one of my flowers, so this would be perfect. Can you give me instructions on how you made it? Thanks!

Gorgeous….they are already on my DIY list.

For people who aren’t comfortable freehanding letters this is what I have done in the past….

1.Find a solid simple font that you like on your computer.

2.Type your initials in the largest font that you can (you may want to use just the outline as it uses a lot of ink).

3.Print out your initial. 

4.Take it to a photocopy place and have them blow it up, if you tell them or show them how big you want it they can print it out on oversized paper. 

5.Cut it out and glue it to foamcore.

6.Cut the foamcore with a craft knife following the paper pattern.


1.Follow steps one and 2 from above.

2.Use a projector and project it onto poster board or foamcore.

(Projectors for tracing aren’t expensive, especially if you use Michael’s coupons).

3.Trace onto the foamcore or poster board.

4.Cut out with a craft knife.
