I was browsing on eBay today and found this handmade Kappa Delta letters set. This is a great idea for sorority sisters that enjoy making sorority gifts for little or big sisters. I'm not sure what it is made of, but it looks like paper maché. I have seen paper maché letters something like this in the craft stores.
The "K" and the "D" appear to be painted in a light green with white polka dots and outlined with a deep forest green color. The letters are embellished with Kappa Delta symbols of a white rose, a precious little brown teddy bear and a cutesy paper and button flower. I like the way she added a handpainted "sisters" at the bottom of the "D" so it looks like the set says "KD Sisters"
I doubt you can find the Greek letters to decorate. Probably only the Greek letters that are also regular (Latin) letters will work like Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA) or Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA) and many others that would work with regular letters.
The hard way would be to make your own paper mache letters cut from styrofoam with a bread knife. It is easier than it sounds, but it may be hard to have it turn out as neatly as you would like. Also, styrofoam doesn't lend itself well for being painted. Styrofoarm letters would look best covered with scrapbooking paper on the front side that faces out.
A better Greek letter set could be made from wood. If you have saws, cut letters from a light-weight board. Any Greek letter could be cut from wood. Draw off patterns before you start.
The seller on eBay posted this message, "These letters are perfect to give your little sister or put in your dorm room! They are hand crafted (by a KD!). Message me if you would like to request larger quantities. Get 10% off with orders of 10 or more."
