These DIY Home Decor Letters are a cozy and frugal addition to any space. Home Decor can be expensive to purchase and hard to find just the right pieces to fit your living area. These letters spelling “HOME” will feel warm and welcoming to those entering your home. They’re easy to make and inexpensive, costing less than $5 to create all four letters.
What You’ll Need:
- scrap wood or pallet pieces for letters H and M
- paint brush
- wooden letter E
- small grapevine wreath for letter O
- burlap sheet
- a few small nails
- craft glue
How to Make DIY Home Decor Letters:
Cut one scrap of wood into three thin strips to create the letter “H”. Nail the three strips together using the small nails. I nailed the pieces together at slight angles to make a more rustic look.
For the “O” use the small grapevine wreath.
To make the “M”, cut a piece of scrap wood or pallet approximately the same size as the letter “H” you’ve created. Sketch the letter “M” onto the wood with a pen or marker.
Using a small paint brush, paint over the letter drawn on your wood. If you have a stencil you may choose to use one for a more perfect looking letter but again, I wanted my letters to seem a bit more weathered and worn.
I had a burlap sheet left over from a previous project that was laminated on one side. This was perfect because it kept the edges from fraying. Simply trace the “E” onto the backside of the burlap and cut it out.
Glue the burlap to the wooden letter using craft glue. Let it dry completely before placing on a shelf or hanging.
The cool thing about this project? You could make many variations for holidays or different spaces. You could choose words like – FALL – SNOW – HOPE – GIVE. Then just use your imagination to give items you have on hand a new “letter” life. What word would you make for your home decor?
