I saw these letters on Pinterest last year and have been dying to make our own. I wanted some letters for the dining room but wanted to do something different besides EAT. I picked up some paper mache letters from Hobby Lobby. I used a coffee filter ruffle attachment (Video Tutorial is on my blog on how to create the ruffles)
I spray painted the letters white so if I had missed a spot with the coffee filters the missing area wouldn't show as much.
Here is a close up of the ruffles. Once the glue dries you can spread them out a little bit to fill in more area.
This project did take me about 800 coffee filters to cover all 3 letters but these letters are big. Smaller letters won't take as long. Pull up your project and watch some TV as you glue them on.
