Self-adhesive lettering makes it easy to decorate with monogrammed designs or label anything you like. Self-adhesive letters can even be made in translucent colours to decorate windows and mirrors. Self-adhesive lettering can be purchased, but it is just as easy and more cost-effective to make them yourself. Try making your own adhesive letters at home.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Contact paper
- Letter stencils
Roll out a sheet of contact paper large enough to make all of the letters you want to create. Lay it paper-backing side up on the table.
Place your stencils onto the paper backing and trace them with a permanent marker. Place them upside down so that the letters are drawn backward on the paper. They will appear correctly when the adhesive contact paper is applied to a surface.
Cut the letters out with your scissors and discard the excess contact paper, or save it for future crafts.
Apply the lettering to a clean, dry surface by peeling off the paper backing and smoothing the adhesive contact paper onto the surface.
