Joann Paper Mache Letters

Joann Paper Mache Letters – I wanted to let you know that Baby Kailyn arrived on August 27th, a week early 🙂 She was a tiny 5 lbs 10 oz! If you are not a fan of my Facebook page, head over and “like” it… I have posted a few updates mixed in with my crafty posts 🙂

Here are some pictures of my sweet little squirt, and since this post is about Kailyn, I thought I’d share one of the paper craft items I made for her nursery.

Here is one of the items I made for her nursery. I used a papier mache letter K from Joann Fabrics & Crafts and covered it with paper, flowers cut with the Art Philosophy Cricut pattern, and Sparkles Flourishes (I’m OBSESSED with it!).

I didn’t want to use Mod Podge, and found that the Scotch tape runner for the ATG works best for sticking the paper to the letter. I ran out and none of my other adhesives were holding the paper on the papier mache letter…so I had to run to a Michael’s and get more! Once it was all glued down I inked all the edges with cocoa ink and a sponge blob so it would really pop.

I put some sparkles in the center of most of the roses. I LOVE this rose from the Art Philosophy Cricut pattern…it’s my go-to flower, and what I used to make Zoey’s Z and all the paper flower wedding bouquets I’ve made (to name a few projects). I like to hot glue them onto my projects…they dry quickly and safely.

This floral paper from Echo Park is the most perfect paper I have found with all her exact nursery colors…I love it! This is from the Sweet Girl series (perfect). After using the floral paper the first time, I wanted more and the store I originally got it from was out. My lovely friend Nichole tracked down some and gave me a few more sheets with my baby shower gift. She is so thoughtful!

I couldn’t tell you where all the paper for the roses came from…I collected tons of paper from my stash and various stores when I found patterns I liked in the right colors 🙂

You will see this K again as I plan to use it as a photo prop for some photo shoots.

I’ve finished a few other nursery projects that I’ll share, have 2 more to make (and now have to find time to do them with a baby…although she’s a HUGE sleeper!!), then will I share her entire nursery! I know I keep saying this, but it will be worth the wait. It’s so cute 🙂

Joann Paper Mache Letters

Cricut Design Space Tutorial: How to Weld Multiple Shapes to Create an Overlay + Cricut File October 11, 2019 I saw some great examples of personalized photo letters and because I have a great love for mod podge and photos, I I knew I wanted to make some for my son’s graduation! I’ll walk you through how to make DIY Paper Mache Photo Letters and you’ll see that it’s not as complicated as you might think!

Large Letter

First you want to spray paint your letters. I personally think it’s faster and easier than using acrylic paint, but that’s up to you. I painted my letters black because I am using black and white photos for this project. You can paint your letters in any color you want!

You should have your photos printed on plain copy paper. This can be a time consuming part of the project depending on how organized your photos are! If you already use photos on your computer, this will save time. I used very large letters…15 inches tall. Even with large letters… you will want your photos to be printed small. Here is the process I used to save time.

Once you have your photos printed on plain white copy paper, you will want to use your paper cutter to cut out each photo. I cut mine all out in the shape they printed in, but you can cut around objects in the pictures if you want!

When the paint on your letter is dry, you are ready to start arranging your photos. It’s kind of like a big puzzle. I sort of laid them out for part of the letter until I liked the outcome and then started gluing the pictures. It’s okay to have paper hanging off the edge, because we’ll deal with that later!

When you are ready to start gluing the photos, you will brush a small amount of mod podge on the back of the photo and move it where you want it. Smooth it out and let it dry. You can continue pasting and overlapping photos, etc. but only glue the back sides at this point.

After this first step of glue dried, I had a few photos that didn’t stick as well as I wanted because of the paint on the letter. I again applied some mod podge to the back of the photos and again smoothed and allowed to dry.

Then I went along the edges and cut the photos nice and evenly down each side with my sharp craft scissors.

Now it’s time to go ahead and brush a thin layer of mod podge over the entire top of the letter. Be sure to watch the corners and sides for drips.

Moss Covered Letters

You can put pictures on the front of the letters and the sides and even the back if you want. I only did the fronts of my letters because I felt that was the only part that would really look good!

I was thrilled with how the DIY Paper Mache Photo Letters turned out! I hope this will be a great keepsake for my son during college and it was fun to make!
