I teamed up with Duck brand duct tape to create today’s DIY Decorative Letter!  These letters are great on a book shelf, mantle, counter or kid’s room. Watch the video above for the full tutorial. I spelled out Kate, because, that’s my name, but there’s obviously inumerable options of words to spell with these colorful decorative letters. The Duck Fabric is cool because it is basically fabric with sticky backs to the end result looks like a fabric covered letter in a chic, matte finish.

Here are some styling ideas for your decorative letters…

Do It!:

  1. Cover the front of your paper mache letter with Duck Tape fabric.
  2. Cut in between the spaces of your letter so you can fold the excess fabric around to the underside of the letter.
  3. Accent the perimeter of your letter with a complimentary Duck fabric tape.
  4. Accent with a mini roll of tape as well – optional
  5. (optional tassel) Cut our a strip of fabric Duck Tape and fold it in half length wise and cut three long strips to braid leaving about a 1/2 inch uncut at the top. Tape off your braid at the bottom.
  6. Cut another strip of duck tape around 12 inches and fold it in half on itself so it’s 6 inches.
  7. Cut little strips along the strip, again not all the way through, leaving about 1/2 inch.
  8. Roll it around the base of the braided strip and tape it to secure it, creating a tassel!
  9. Tape your tassle to your decorative letter.
