DIY Personalized Wooden Letters with Modge Podge and Scrapbook Paper

This may be the easiest DIY craft and this is coming from a non-crafty mama bear.


  • Wooden letters [you can purchase these at any craft store such as Michaels or Hobby Lobby]
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Scrapbook stickers
  • Ribbon and other sewing notions
  • Scissors
  • Modge Podge [matte or shiny]
  • Paint brush

  1. Select a sheet of scrapbook paper that you would like on top of your letter.

  2. Trace the letter on the scrapbook paper and cut out paper.
    1. I placed the letter on top of the scrapbook paper to trace.
    2. If you choose to trace on the back of the paper, be sure to reverse the letter.

  3. Using the paint brush, apply Modge Podge liberally to the wooden letter.

  4. Carefully, apply scrapbook paper to the letter.  Allow to dry.

  5. Paint Modge Podge over the scrapbooked letter.

  6. After the scrapbooked letter has dried, attach various scrapbook stickers and ribbons/rick-rack to the letter.

  7. In the Letter E below, I hot-glued a jeweled bracket to the letter for extra bling.  



  1. Very cute! I have the letters in a box, just sitting there. I really need to use them. =)

  2. So awesome! They look amazing! I'm totally stealing this idea!

  3. These wooden letters are beautiful - such a clever idea and yet it looks so simple.

  4. Hey, you have described the process of designing these letters so well. The step by step process is easy and simple to follow, I will surely use it in the near future for my little one’ room. Thanks for sharing this idea with us.
