DIY Letter Board. 

Who really wants to spend $45+ plus on an old-fashioned letter board that is actually worth $10? But because the old is now the new, letter boards are a “have to have” piece for any boho/hipster room. So I have taken into my own hands, literally, and created my own.

Total cost $17.88

  • Fabric scissors
  • Straight edge razor (I used a kitchen knife when my razor broke)
  • Hot glue gun and plenty of glue sticks
  • About 1/2 yard of black felt.
  • A picture frame with depth, I used the back of a canvas.
  • Foam board or skewers that fit your frame
  • Your favorite Spotify playlist, (Love aLatte, optional)

To start:

  1. Measure the widths and depth of your frame.
  2. Start cutting your foam board to fit the width of the frame. It’s okay, they don’t have to be perfect. Cut enough to fill the frame.  
  3. Once you have all of your pieces cut, you will need your hot glue gun.
  4. Wrap your measured felt around the first piece of foam completely. Then glue to the top of the frame.
  5. From here, you will place and glue the foam to the felt by weaving the felt over and under the foam.
  6. Make sure you are squishing the pieces closely together.

7. Continue the above steps until the frame is full.

Lastly, give it a quick roller over with a lent roller.

To finish, insert your favorite quotes or puns!

  1. What a fun idea! I like those letter boards but definitely didn’t want to shell out big bucks for them.
