Quilted Letters Are The Cozy, Warm Decor You Need

Diply 28 Sep 2018

There's a lot of word and letter art available that you can buy to decorate your home.

And all of those options are fine. But with this project, you get the chance to create something that's uniquely yours and reflects a bit more of your personality.

Plus, there's no sewing involved to create these quilted letters. You just need some wooden letters, which are available at most craft stores, some fabric, and some hot glue.

Gather up your materials, and let's make a little love for your wall!

Place the wooden letter on the table, and hot glue some pillow stuffing on top.

Make a sort of wave pattern with you hot glue, and be careful not to use too much glue so that your stuffing gets saturated and doesn't stay puffy.

Lay fabric onto the letter, and flip it over face down with the fabric underneath.

For your fabrics, pick out fun colors and patterns that will accent your home's decor.

Fold the fabric over the sides and back of the letter, and attach it with hot glue.

Use scissors to cut the fabric to allow it to cover the maximum amount of the letter. To cover the ends, fold the fabric as you would if you were wrapping a present. Trim away any excess fabric.

Take another strip of the same fabric, and hem one edge using hot glue.

Use this strip to line the edge of the letter with the hem next to the front face of the letter. Attach it with hot glue.

When the strip meets itself, trim it to length.

Different letters will require a slightly different approach, so you might have to play around with the best way to cover them, but the steps will mostly be the same.
