I shared the $1 thrifted wooden letter holder a while back in a Finds of the Week post.
I gave it a couple of coats of a lovely white paint and primer combo, and then I had no idea what to do next.
I took it up to my craft room and starting looking through some stashes and found this pretty thrifted roses wrapping paper.
Yes I thought. A perfect paper for craft room girlification.
I cut pieces of approximate size, brushed some mod podge onto the letter holder fronts, lay the paper on top, and smoothed it out with my fingers as best I could.
It didn’t matter if they fit perfectly or not.
I then added two coats of MP on top of the paper.
I glued on some Christmas pearl garland around the edges of the fronts.
I added the letters J-O-Y to the fronts, and glued on a couple of Frozen Charlottes from my friend Donna from Distressed Donna Down Home.
I’ve been looking for a home for them for some time, and I think they look quite nice here.
My new letter holder holds some sweet little organza bags and pretty floral cards that I use when shipping items from my Etsy shops.
Here’s the very dated 70s orangy before… and the pinkified and girlified after.
Thanks so much for reading!
Have a lovely weekend and until next time…
