12 Fun DIY Craft Letter Decoration Ideas

Plain letters in all sizes are so easy to find and so inexpensive that I have quite a few in my crafting stash. Sometimes I like to spell out words and other times I just like to do  initials or symbols like an ampersand (&). The only thing is… I think  those big chipboard/wood/paper mache letters look a whole lot better if you dress them up ( even if you just spray paint them).  Today I’m sharing with you a few fun ways to embellish those craft letters including a couple that I’ve already done!
