Looking for a fun, inexpensive way to personalize your home? Decorative Letters are classic decor for your home. You can buy them everywhere and have your letter look just like your neighbors or… you can create decorative letters out of paint sticks for a look that is all your own.
This project is fun, easy and the best part INEXPENSIVE! I love mixing mediums and the wood sticks with the industrial looking screws and bolts are a perfect combination!

Supplies for Decorative Letters:
- 2-3 paint sticks per letter
- Spray paint, latex or acrylic paint
- Machine Screw (These are the ones I used)
- Nut (These fit the screw)
- Drill bit
- Sanding block (optional)
- Tin Snips (Make sure you get a good pair like these)
Decorative Letters Instructions:
Step 1) Using your tin snips, cut off the indented part of each paint stick
Step 3) Drill a hole at each intersecting point to hold the nut & bolt.
Step 4) Before fastening them together, spray paint the pieces in desired color. Let dry. Distress pieces with sandpaper if desired.
5) Assemble the letter by attaching the nut and bolt at each intersecting point, the nut is to the front of the letter.
There are so many possibilities with the letters. I did not like the look of a square “O” so I used small grapevine wreaths. This made my “O”s a circle and added yet another medium and texture to my word!
