Fabric Covered Letters

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing an alphabet craft that’s fun for both children and adults. One of the best parts about this project is that it’s made mostly of an old cardboard box. I’ve mentioned this in other posts, but I will say again how much I love reusing and repurposing items that people usually throw away.

Here’s the finished product:

I covered the letters in adhesive fabric, but you may also use material that’s thin and easy to adhere to the cardboard with either a fabric glue or decoupage glue.

 

Follow the instructions below to learn how to make the letters.

Supplies:

  • Cardboard
  • Adhesive Fabric
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun (optional)
  • Black Sharpie Marker
  • Alphabet Stencil

  • Use a Sharpie and the alphabet stencil to draw letters on the cardboard.

  • Use a sharp pair of scissors or a utility knife to cut the letters out of the cardboard.

  • Wrap and trim the fabric around the cardboard letters.
  • I used a hot glue gun to help adhere the small sections of the material that had trouble sticking to the cardboard.

My son loves playing with these letters. It’s another entertaining way for him to practice spelling words during his summer break.

 

Thanks for reading!
