STEP 2

Then you are ready to prepare your fringing for your first letter. Unroll your crepe paper and cut it into some manageable lengths – I tend to go for 30cm strips. Then, start fringing the paper by snipping into it. Aim for a 1cm space between each snip.

STEP 3

Once you’ve prepped some fringing, now you can begin applying it to your letter. Simply apply some PVA glue to your letter’s surface and begin to attach and wind your fringing around the letter. Do this until the entire letter is covered.
