Top 10 Ideas for Decorative Letters with a Beach & Coastal Theme

Shop Coastal Decor

Decorative letters are a great way to personalize your space! Not only can you paint and embellish letters to your heart's content, you can also spell out your favorite word, a message, or display an initial. They bring a sculptural element to your wall or bookshelf. These are some of my top ideas for DIY decorative letters with a beach and coastal theme!
