If you live by mantras and mottos, you should consider treating yourself to a letter board. Easy to assemble and a low-lift way to show more personality in your home, letter boards allow you to craft cute messages using emojis, symbols, letters and numbers. You’ve probably seen them all over Instagram. You just stick the letters straight into the vintage-style felt board, where they still stay until you decide to change out your message. Each one usually has a wooden rustic edge and either comes with an easel stand or has one built-in. These boards are also great for events, like birthday parties and weddings.
The best black felt letter boards with stands have pre-cut letters, so you don’t have to spend an hour trimming little pieces off of your ABCs. One of our picks even has presorted letters, so you don’t have to try to search for the “T” in a pile of 300 letters. In addition to letters, you usually get the cursive words, like days of the week or “love” and “family.” These Instagram-worthy boards might help provide you with some clarity, or you’ll have fun leaving messages for your roommates.
