DIY Felt Letter Boards – 3 ways

Felt letter boards have been trending more and more on social media and on décor blogs over the last few months. If you’ve checked out the prices, they’re rather expensive. But guess what? You can DIY the look for a fraction of the cost using Kunin Eco-Fi® Premiumfelt™

Kunin’s Eco-Fi® Premiumfelt™ is the perfect fabric making felt letter boards of any style because it comes in so many colors and can be purchased by the yard for larger projects.


When I first wanted to make a felt letter board last year, I wanted to do it as affordably as possible and with as few craft tools as possible. I imagined a college student or teacher who wanted to make a felt letter board as temporary, seasonal décor and would not want to spend a lot on tools they’d only use once. This felt letter board can be made with simple tools like a measuring tape and scissors. For precision, use a rotary cutter and grid ruler like I did: Rainbow Felt Letter Board

The first letter board I made was rather flimsy since the felt strips were moveable and squished when the letters were pressed in. To make a sturdier board, I used dowels to space and support the felt. Here’s how: DIY Valentine Felt Letter Board


Earlier this month, another blogger emailed me her DIY Felt Letter Board; it’s a combination of both of the letterboard ideas I shared above, using bamboo skewers instead of wood dowels. DIY Letter Board
