Mod Podged Comic Book Letters

I made these letters a while ago. Our last name is Byrd and since my hubby and boys love superheroes, I wanted to make some wall art out of comic books. Of course I had to have the hubby pick out which comic books were acceptable to tear up and I was ready to create!

This is what I made:






I like them all, but like the way that the Superman one turned out the best. What do you think?



I am participating in Made By You Mondays for the first time!


I am also participating in Debbiedoo's Newby Party for the second week!

I think they are great! I may try modifying it a bit and making some for my little boy using sports pages. Thanks for visiting my site. I am glad we are now blogging buddies!

I think those are ULTRA cool, and so would both my boys. I have lots of old comic books...I may have to consider that. Thanks for joining the party.

Nicole said...

I think superman turned out the best to, but spidey is a close second! I love this! I was just threatening the hubby that I was going to mod podge his shoes with comic books- this might be better!

Natalie said...

So neat!! I love the Superman too but I really love the placement of the Green Lantern! My dad and brother are huge comic book lovers and this is right up their alley! I recently posted about my son's superhero bedroom if you wanted to take a look! http://aturtleslifeforme.blogspot.com/2011/02/its-bird-its-plane-its-little-boys.html
