More Than Words: 20 Ways to Create Your Own Beautiful Typographic Decor

We’ve already shown you a handful of gorgeous typographical products to swoon over, from customizable couches to bookcases. Now it’s time to get scrappy! Here are 20 ways to create your own typographical decor. After all, why buy when you can DIY?

1. Cut Out Letter Posters: We’ll kick it off with a party rockin’ poster! Love this play on the pop-up. (via How About Orange)

2. Letter Coatrack: We might need to make one of these for Brit HQ – so cute! (via Oh Happy Day)

3. Wire Word Friendship Bracelets: We might be stretching the definition of decor by including a wearable (or two) on this list, but accessories are how we decorate ourselves, right? (via Brit + Co.)

4. Typography Chair: If you’ve got an old chair that needs an update, use adhesive letters as stencils to recreate a similar look. This could be a great way to personalize a kid’s room. (via Dollar Store Crafts)

5. Mini Marquee: Celebrate! All you need is colorful card stock and lights to recreate your own take on this fun project. Stay tuned for a larger (and simpler) version tomorrow! (via Brit + Co.)

6. Giant Letter Pillows: Forget about bean bags, giant alphabet pillows are the jam. (via Oh Happy Day)

15. Shrink Plastic Pendants: If only this said “Hey girl…” :) (via How About Orange)

16. Glass Jar Typography: What an easy and lovely way to personalize jars! (via Project Wedding)

17. Holy Chic Typography Tee: Holy chic! The moment we saw this $225 t-shirt we knew we had to recreate it. (via Brit + Co.)
