How to Make Mache Dad Letters
There are so many different things you can do with mache letters, whether you want to spend an hour or so crafting with the kids to make something for the house, or decorate them to give as a gift, which is exactly what I decided to do for Father’s day.
My Dad loves visiting the coast, so when I spotted some suitably themed paper mache papers I couldn’t resist making my Dad a gift.
- Start by painting all of the letters with the craft acrylic. To get a nice even coverage you may need to do more than one coat of the craft acrylic, make sure that the first coat is completely dry before applying the next one.
- Once the letters are dry, place the front of the letter face down onto the back of your chosen papier mache paper and draw around it using a pencil.
- Cut out using scissors.
- Cover the front of the mache letter with Mod Podge. Stick the papers in place and leave to dry.
- Once dry, go over any loose edges using the Mod Podge and leave to dry.
