It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And if you’ve been bitten by the DIY bug, it’s also the craftiest time of the year. Get into the merry-making spirit with this fun and festive little project from Chelsea Foy. A bit industrial, a bit delicate, and a whole lot chic, these gilded cement letter ornaments will help you deck your tree modernly. “Quick-dry cement is one of our favorite materials for creating sturdy, surprisingly beautiful handcrafted pieces,” Chelsea says. “It’s incredibly easy to work with and will definitely charm your guests! Use these alphabet letters as ornament favors or place cards at a winter wedding. You can also just spell out Christmassy words and put them on display at a holiday party or reception. The sky’s the limit!”
