Shower Decor: Letters

Need a super easy, last-minute, affordable and personalized DIY for an upcoming shower, birthday party, holiday bash, graduation send-off or holiday bar cart?! Please…. what kind of blog besties would we be if I didn’t tell you that I have your back?

As a part of Casey’s bridal team, I was excited to help decorate for her big event (read about the shower right here!) But to be perfectly honest… back-to-school, back to coaching golf full-time, & keeping up with the amount of blog work piling up kept my time to devote to shower decor limited. I needed a few key pieces of decor to make a statement at the shower without having to invest a ton of time (or money).

Plain decorative letters are super easy to jazz up and customize in any way you can imagine

Can I buy an extra T, I, M, E? I wish! But thanks to these cardboard letters being 50% off at Hobby Lobby… I didn’t need a whole lot of time (or money) invested to create quite the glamorous statement for the shower.

Supplies needed:

  • Cardboard Letters (50% off at Hobby Lobby)
  • Gold Spray Paint
  • Ribbon/Embellishments
  • Hot Glue Gun

Gold spray painted letters for a special party

I added ONE coat of gold spray paint and let them dry for about 1/2 hour. (Yes, it only took about 30 minutes to move on with the process)! One coat of paint is a perfect cover for these decorative letters FINN spelled out in gold letters with blue flowersI then added a few pieces of ribbon, hot glued a few embellishments on random letters and called it a day! My total investment was about $12 and about 35 minutes & I was able to create a piece of statement art with no fuss at all. Check out the finished product….

these gold letters added a special touch to this bridal showerIf I knew how quick and painless the whole process was going to be, I probably would have bought more letters to display. I would have maybe added “Mr. & Mrs” or “Cheers” by the bar or the date of their wedding possibly? Heck, maybe even a small phrase at this rate!

I think they would totally work in a nursery, kid’s bedroom, on a bar cart, at your office, or even in a classroom?! Maybe even multi-colored? Or glittered? How about Ombre?!  Wow….. I think it’s time for me to buy a S, T, O, P!
