Greek girls love their sorority insignia more than they love rhinestones (which is a lot). Your letters are something to be proud of, which is why these DIY lace block letters are a great project for any sorority girl.
Sarah Dinell, a member of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority, made this craft for one of her sisters.
“The great thing about this project is that you can really customize it however you want,” Dinell said. “You can make it your own by using a different color of paint or a different color of lace.”
It’s a new yet simple twist on a classic crafting project, and here’s how you do it!
Step 1: Find an old piece of cardboard and use a ruler to cut a square out of it. You can make the square as big or as little as you want, depending on how big you want the letters to be.
Step 2: Paint the cardboard black, or any color that you want. Let it completely dry before moving on to the next step.
Step 3: Pick out some lace and wrap it around the cardboard, using super glue or masking tape to secure it in the back. Lace comes in a variety of different colors, so feel free to be creative when picking out your lace!
Step 4: Buy small wooden letters that represent your sorority, and paint them the same color you painted the cardboard, or whatever color you want. Once they have completely dried, you can make unique additions to the letters.
“I added a small pink bow to the ‘D’ because I wanted it to stand out and look different,” Dinell said.
Step 5: Tape or super glue the letters to the cardboard squares and you’re done!
Kristen Hwang, a member of Sigma Kappa sorority, praised Dinell on her project.
“Sarah showed me the letters when she was done and I thought it was so awesome,” Hwang said. “I will definitely be making letters like this sometime soon!”
Keep it crafty!
