In need of a gift for one of your sisters? Thankfully, you can never go wrong with DIY wooden letters. You can go to your local crafting store and find wooden letters that represent your sorority in a variety of different shapes, sizes and colors.

“They’re so easy and fun to make,” Chi Omega member Brooke Mitchell said, “Plus they look really nice once they’re finished.”

Step 1: Go to an arts and crafts store; places like Hobby Lobby have a large selection of wooden letters for a decent price. Pick the letters that correspond to your sorority, or you can even order customized Greek symbols online. Try to find letters that are either white or natural colored because they will be easier to paint over.

Step 2: Pick out a bright color of paint and put about 2-3 layers of paint on the letters. Make sure to paint the sides of the letters as well!

Step 3: Find some fun felt stickers or mini flowers to decorate the letters with. If you can’t find any felt stickers, get any sort of embellishments and attach them to the letters using super glue or a hot-glue gun. Try organizing the embellishments in a creative way and use a variety of colors that compliment the color of the letters!

And there you have it! If you want to make the letters a little more interesting, you can add stripes or polka dots in a different color of paint, or you can add rhinestones, every sorority girl’s favorite add-on.

“You can never have too many letters, so it’s always the perfect gift for any sister,” Mitchell said.
