This was such a fun gift idea to do. It took hardly any time and it looks fabulous when it’s finished. Check out how you can make a newspaper initial that can stand alone on a shelf or counter. I did my sister in law’s last initial and it looks great at her house. Check out how I did the newspaper monogram initial diy gift!
First gather the ingredients needed. I used a paint brush, newspaper I tore, white glue and my initial I purchased at the local craft and hobby store.
Take your glue and dip your paint brush in it. Then glue the newspaper down onto the letter. Apply until the letter is completely covered. I did not do the sides but you absolutely could if you think it gives it a more finished look. Do you make diy gifts for Christmas?
What do you think? Is it something you’d make for your family? I think this cost me a total of $4 to make including tax. They are so cute though! I’d love a gift like this! Do you enjoy making gifts to give for Christmas?
