Scrapbook Paper Letters for the Nursery

I'm back with yet another nursery project! I couldn't share this one with the rest of the nursery reveal since we didn't reveal Emerson's name until she was born. But, I definitely had this project done ahead of time! I'm pretty sure I accidentally left the letters out when my mom stopped by one day so she found out the name ahead of time... oh well. :) 

Paper mache letters from Hobby Lobby (around $2.50 each)
Acrylic craft paint (for the sides) and brush
Mod Podge
Foam brush
Scrapbook paper in coordinating colors

First, I painted the sides of each letter an off white.

Next, I placed the scrapbook paper face down on the table and turned each letter backwards and upside down and traced out the letters. Then, cut out each letter.

Then, I applied (in small sections) mod podge on the paper mache letters and then placed the paper on top. Once the bottom layer was on, I applied a thin and even layer of mod podge over the top of the scrapbook paper to seal it and protect the paper. The mod podge dries clear and gives it a glossy coat.

Such a fun and colorful way to personalize a room. Especially for people that love typography as art like me!


  1. Can you tell me where the quilt is from draped over the crib? Did you make it or order/purchase it? I want to do my baby girl's nursery in similar colors but am having trouble finding a fabric I like. Thanks!

    1. Hi Bnmodlin! I made the quilt above with some fabric I found at a local quilt store. I still need to take more pictures and post a tutorial, which will hopefully be soon! Thanks for reading!

  2. Could you tell me where you found the mobile? I've been looking for one hot air balloon themed for over a year and haven't found one :)

    1. Hi Carolina! I actually made it myself! Check out my DIY page for a link to the blog post tutorial. Thanks!
