How to make Wooden Letter Disks
Hi! I thought I’d do a post on how to make the bottle-cap letters since people keep asking me.
I want to say I wasn’t the initiator of this idea, I got it from Shannon at Tot School! I ended up using wooden disks from Michael’s instead of milk bottle caps as I didn’t have nearly enough! But you could use whatever you have around, this just worked for me!
First I printed off the letters. You can download my uppercase and lowercase letters here. My font is called Print Clearly so its more of a manuscript print than Shannon’s, she used Comic Sans, so use whatever you prefer.
I used a 1 3/8″ circle punch from Archiver’s to cut out my letters:
I know some people Modge Podge the disks when done, but I didn’t and they seem to be holding up fine. Well, that’s it! Super easy and fun! Tip from the trenches: Make a couple copies of commonly used letters as some words contain more than one of the same letter, like cookie for example
