XOXO – covered letters

After seeing lots of decorated letter for everyday and seasonal decor I decided to look for some letters to decorate.   I originally thought of ‘Love’ or Kiss but after seeing X and Q on clearance for 35 cents each I decided on X O.  Well I hoped that I could turn the Q to an O without too much work.


I think it was a success.


I can’t tell where I had to do a little surgery on the former Q.


I decided to cover the edge of the letters with some book binding tape that I’ve had in my stash for a while.  It covered the hole perfectly.


The best part about the book binding tape was that it was self adhesive so I didn’t have to glue it on.


The colors I had were a perfect match to some papers I had on hand.


I put it on display in place of a frame that I had listed in my etsy store and sold. 


I think I need a bit more height in that spot so I might just have to go see if I can pick up another X and Q and make another set that I can stack on top.


What do you think?  Another set?

Not bad for $.75 cents and supplies I had on hand.



I usually link to these fabulous parties:


  1. They look so pretty! Can't even tell the "O" was a "Q". You did an awesome job. Your blog is adorable. Love it!

  2. I really like the colors you picked especially together. Very cute.
