As you may already know, we dig throwbacks pretty hardcore around here. From these 鈥80s-inspired sequin roller blades to good old fashioned 鈥90s TV聽dinners, we love to glean inspiration from iconic blasts from the past. Now let鈥檚 talk letter boards. THEY ARE EVERYWHERE and we are loving it! Although hard to pinpoint the origin of the letter board, they have been around foreeeeeeeever and we are stoked to see them gaining mainstream popularity. TBH, they can be little pricey and they鈥檙e sold out a lot, so in true DIY spirit we decided to try and make one ourselves. Turns out it鈥檚 super easy!

Time to get started.

step1

First things first, using your handy dandy hot glue gun, attach the wooden dowels to the cardboard frame insert, about 鈪 inch apart from each other. Accurate spacing is v important so the letters fit into the slots you are about to create. I recommend you measure and mark the spacing with a pencil.

Now that all the dowels are attached, it鈥檚 time to grab your felt and metal ruler. Apply hot glue to the cardboard in between the wooden dowels. Use the metal ruler to push the felt flush into the spaces.

step2

Continue attaching the felt to the cardboard until the entire board is covered.

Pro tip: Use one ruler to hold down the felt you just glued onto the cardboard and the other to smooth down the new section you just glued. See GIF above!
