You may remember the FABULOUS Spider Hero birthday party we showed you here a few months back? 

Well, today our sweet and super talented blogging contributor Smita (from The Party Wall) is back to show us how to create the stunning Comic Book Letters she used as party decor, which also double as wall decor for your kids' super hero bedroom before and after the party! :)

SpiderMan Inspired Party | DIY Comic Book Letters

These comic book letters make a great decorative accent for a superhero-themed party or bedroom. 

Rather than tearing up valuable, vintage comic books, I simply printed images from comics that I found on the Internet. Alternatively, you could make color copies of your favorite vintage comic book and use the copies. I recycled the wooden letters from my son's previous "monkey"-themed room so this was a cost-free project for me, but you could use inexpensive chipboard letters. I do, however, like the thickness of the wooden letters over the chipboard letters.

Step 1: You will need wooden/chipboard letters, comic book (real, copies or computer printouts), tissue paper, Mod Podge, a brush, scissors and a pencil.

Step 2: Flip over each wooden letter and trace around each wooden letter on the back of a comic book page.

Step 3: Cut out the letters from the comic book pages and set them aside. These will be used later to cover the front face of each wooden letter.

Step 4: Cut strips of tissue paper to about twice the thickness of your wooden letters.

Step 5: Apply Mod Podge to the edges of each wooden letter.

Step 6: Paste the tissue paper strips around each wooden letter, to completely cover the edges of each wooden letter. You may need to cut small slits to get around curved letters, as shown below. Apply more Mod Podge over the tissue paper.

Step 7: Apply Modge Podge to the face of each letter, position the comic book page cut out and apply more Mod Podge over the top of each letter and seal all the edges. It may look a little pasty when it is wet, but it will dry clear.

 Step 8: Let the comic book letters dry thoroughly. Coat with a clear coat of varnish to finish.
