How do I make Decorated Kraft Paper Letters?

Glitter letters

Using a paintbrush apply a thick coat of glue to letter. Sprinkle glitter onto wet glue.          Reapply glue and glitter as it is drying until it is fully covered. Allow to dry.

Cotton ball letters

Apply a small amount of glue to letter. Apply colored cotton balls (from The Land of Nod’s I’m Not Bored Anymore Art Jar). Repeat until covered. Allow to dry.

Newspaper letters

Apply glue to letter by smaller area so glue does not dry before you finish. Apply newspaper clippings to glued areas. Repeat until covered. Allow to dry.

    Ha!!! This post made me crack up. We have NO glitter in my house. None. I told the edirctor of my son’s preschool (and old family friend) that I would gladly make a large donation if they could promise me they would never send another project with glitter home again. She declined the offer. I’m glad you were brave. I’ve been better with getting messy, but I still struggle. Good for you!!!
