This year my Christmas decor is a winter wonderland inspired theme. Living in central California means we can only wish for a white Christmas, which unfortunately never happens. But, I’m perfectly fine with decorating my home with a snowy white theme instead. This holiday season I used 90% white decorations with a hint of frosted green accents. While putting together a cabinet display I knew I wanted to add holiday letters to the setup. These faux fur paper mache DIY NOEL letters were the perfect addition to this year’s Christmas decor.
Step one. Apply 2-3 coats of white paint all over the paper mache letters. I didn’t put a lot of focus on the front since it was going to be covered, but I did make sure to fully coat the sides of the letters.
Step two. Once your paint has dried, hot glue the front of the letters to the faux fur. I placed my fur down (upside down) and placed my glue covered letter upside down. Allow glue to dry completely before moving.
Step three. Use scissors to cut around the letter. An x-acto knife and cutting mat would probably works as well. I was able to fit 3 letters on the fur and use scraps for the last letter. The fur will actually hide any seams so you can’t tell that one of the DIY NOEL letters wasn’t covered in one piece.
