DIY Letter Artwork... EASY for kids too!

I remember doing crafty things with my Grandma and my Mom so I hope my kids will also cherish times together getting crafty. Now as an adult, I still love doing crafty things and this love of getting crafty is being past down to my kids, hopefully.

I am also a crafty things collector. I have numerous things in plastic containers, all labeled… now if I could only get that organized in other areas of my home. ­čśë 

This is a simple tutorial of how to DIY for letter artwork that can represent your last name or individual’s names in your family. My two older kids and I made this for London, the youngest child.

  2. Paint the letter with acrylic paint, let it dry
  3. Glue buttons on with tacky paint, let it dry
  4. On the back of the letter, glue on the pop can tab to use as the nail hanger
