Superhero Comic Book Letters

I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far! I have been super occupied getting my blog together. Doing the design myself has been super time consuming. I don’t know how these women do it for multiple blogs!
I took a little break from Addison’s party planning (even though I am so behind now) to work on my son’s room! I started these letters oh… like a year ago. Aubrey and I finally finished them!

These letters were seriously the hardest thing EVER to photograph. It’s rainy today and Aubrey’s room doesn’t exactly get a lot of natural light so it just wasn’t pretty when I photographed them in there. It just wasn’t working for me. But the letters turned out so fun! Aubrey LOVES them!
Earlier I took them off the wall to take them outside to photograph.. he was so concerned about his name. So cute!

These are so easy to make, and great if you want to get your little on involved!

Comic Book Letters

-Bought the letters from Hobby Lobby
-Got some old superhero comic books together and cut them up
-Used Mod Podge to apply the comic books papers to the letters

Then I hung the letters using the command Velcro strips

I only used one on each letter since they are so light and it has worked for me : )

Aubrey had so much fun making these and playing in the modge podge. I’m not sure if he had more fun painting it on, or peeling it off his hands when we were done! : )

Next thing I have planned for his room is a superhero quilt. Hoping to have that done by the end of summer! Don’t hold me to it though : )

      Thank you so much! Anything boy is difficult for me. Give me fabric ruffles any day. Boys make you think.. both in life and in decorations, haha : )

      Thank you! My son would agree.. or course I think it’s more batman and superman that he’s excited about, I can pretend it was my efforts though : )

    Hi Ashley – I love these letters. Something a boy would love – totally. We are so used to seeing all the sweet letters – pick, damasked, glittered etc – it’s nice to see something different.

    I signed up for your link party…

    I am switching to WordPress…I know you love it. Do you see any difference in how you post? I admit that’s the one thing I’m scared of? Any other difference that you can see? Let me know.

    Thanks again for hosting!

      Thanks so much Linda! So glad to have you at the party : )

      I use windows live writer for all my posts actually so it didn’t change that much. As for differences, there are quite a lot. It is a whole new game, but it’s not too hard to figure out. The difficult things I ran into were designing the blog myself and altering the appearance of the blog itself. As far as arranging your widgets and the layout, its not bad at all! When you make the switch let me know if you have any questions! I had a lot of people help me so I’d love to pass along what I have learned! Have a great day!

      I saw those! I bought some pictures from etsy a while back I need to hang. They are little lego looking superhero guys. I feel like I live on superhero planet sometimes!

    • Ashley says

      Thanks Bonnie! I think my son loves these more than me sometimes, lol. Anything with batman, superman, and spiderman is number 1 in his book… haha!

    • Ashley says

      Thanks Michele! My son is kind of obsessed with them… of course. batman is #1 around here! : )

    • Ashley says

      Thank you! I might have to send some to my nephew now for his birthday! : ) Luckily his name is only 4 letters!

    • Ashley says

      They are such a great gift! I found the old comics in the vintage section of etsy for just a few dollars!

  2. Courtney says

    Found you via chic on a shoestring….so cute! I’m going to have to do this for my little superhero’s room. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. says

    Love this idea. My college aged son is a serious comic book collector. This gives me an idea for his dorm room for next year!

    • Ashley says

      Thanks Chelsea! You could totally put these anywhere! My husband loves theme even though he’s not a big comic person… I guess guys just can’t deny comic books in the end though!

    • Ashley says

      Thank you so much! I hope to quilt turns out like I have planned… I’m a little nervous about it!

    Super cute, Ashley! I love those velcro strips too – they’re what I used to hang the “R-E-A-D” letters in our library area. Thanks so much for sharing! I bet they look awesome in the room!

    • Ashley says

      Thanks Roeshel! Velcro strips are AWESOME! Especially since we are still renting! : ) Plus they are just plain easier!

    • Ashley says

      Thank you so much! : ) Make sure and send me a pic if you made some! I’ll be sure and share with my readers!

    What kid wouldn’t love these?! Comic book pages are quite the draw with nostalgic adults as well. You nailed it with these!

    I’m surrounded by boys in this house (2 sons, 1 stepson, and my boyfriend) so I welcome any and all super rad boy crafts! I love these letters!

  7. says

    Great idea!! All three of my boys would love these! I will be featuring these at our party tomorrow morning. YAY! Thanks so much for partying with us!:)

  8. says

    Hey Ashley! Great project! I actually just made this for my boyfriend as a half birthday gift (yes, we celebrate half birthdays). However, i put my own little spin on it. Let me know if you’d want to see a picture of it! great job again!

    • Ashley says

      Thanks Pam! Sorry for the late reply. Just got moved and had family in. So glad to have you! looking forward to blogging with you : )

    • Ashley says

      Thank you Alice! : ) I used a matte finish modge podge. I Put a layer of the modge podge under the comic strip, then after that dried I put a layer on top to seal it. Let me know if you have any other questions!

  9. Rosie says

    These are very cool! I want to make them for my nephews 10th birthday. I’m on the hunt for Pokemon comic books! Thanks for sharing!

  10. says

    My spouse and I stumbled over here coming from a different web page and thought

    am following you. Look forward to looking
    over your web page yet again.

    Am so going to try to make for my grandson’s room who is a huge super hero’s fan. I am not “crafty” but feel as though this I can do. Thank you for sharing

    • Ashley says

      Thanks so much : ) I actually ordered them from etsy. They were missing the covers which was fine for me, so I got like 3 comic books for $5 I think. You have to keep an eye out, but I still some on there occasionally : ) Ebay might be a good place too!

  12. Whitney says

    I am redoing my sons room. I can across this and loved it! I am going for old superhero theme so you see how much I love this project it’s perfect. I did have a question, could I use a thin fabric ? Do you know where I could find old comic books?

    I am so excited to do this:)

    Thanks a Ton

    • Ashley says

      Whitney, you could definitely use fabric! I found mine on etsy. I’ve also gotten some at garage sales, but that is kind of hit or miss. Good luck and I’d love to see how yours turns out!

  13. Sarah says

    These are awesome! I would like to make some for my son for his birthday. Did you sand or paint the letters first, or just Modge Podge, apply the comics, and Modge podge again? Did you cut the paper to go just to the edge of the letters or did you wrap it around? Thanks for your help!

    • Ashley says

      Hi Sarah, I didn’t sand them, everything is still sticking great after a few years! I did one layer of the mod podge, then layed the comics over it gently smoothing out wrinkles then did another layer over that. As far as the edges go, I just kinda folded it over when necessary, mine aren’t perfect at all, but you really can’t tell unless you are specifically looking for it! I just stuck some paper on there until it was all covered. If I had a lot of excess I did trim that off though.
