"T" is for Turf Letter

Craft: big turf letter


Construct a 3-dimensional letter from cardboard, cover with turf and add a floral decoration for some fun Spring front door decor:


Personalized to match our last name of course:




Here's how to make the big turf letter:

1. Cut 2 matching letter shapes from cardboard and 2" wide long strips:



2. Tape strip to edge of one letter bending as you go around the curves:


3. Then tape other letter piece to other edge of strip to make hollow form:


4. Cut turf to fit letter with plenty of excess around edges:


5. Hot glue turf to letter (right side down), clip turf at curves and pull tight to back hot gluing everything in place directly to cardboard:


6. Make flower decoration using small faux flowers, burlap and mini chalkboard marker:


7. Secure flower decoration to letter and add sawtooth hanger to back:
