3D Alphabet Templates
If you’re looking for more wall art ideas for kids rooms, here are free printable 3D alphabet templates including all the letters from A to Z that you can print and make, to spell any words or phrases you like. Each letter template is in black outline with grey shades on the sides of the letters so when you print them on colored papers, it adds a darker shade to the paper color for a nice detail and more 3D feel.
The letters are based on a 3D styled font which renders itself perfectly to be made into actual 3D letters. The design is great for space and robot related words in striking colors but I printed them on pastel colored papers this time to give them a soft twist and they looked lovely!
They make great alphabet wall art for nurseries and kids rooms as well as cool desk top or bookshelf decoration. For all of you who love words and typography.
You can make a complete A to Z 3D wall display as I did (above) but it will take some time to make all the letters. Instead, you can also choose a few letters and make them quickly to spell a name or word you want to use for your wall.
How to make 3D Alphabet Wall Art
1. Spell kids names, nice words or quotes you want to display. Plan your color combination and print each letter on your chosen paper.
2. Cut the solid outlines and score the dotted lines. The front face of the letter is connected to the sides of the letter. There are additional side strips you’ll need to cut and score. The reverse side of the letter is on its own without tabs or sides and is optional to use. If you display the letters on the wall you don’t need to use the back. If you want to play with them as objects, adding the back will give extra strength.
3. It’s best to start by gluing all the separate side strips to the main body first.
To do this start by placing the main letter part printed-side down. Fold up all the attachment tabs and apply glue or double sided tapes to the tabs. Fold the separate side strip and place in the correct position to check first that you’re working with the correct side strip (there are several additional strips for each letter). When gluing in these extra side strip parts make sure to push the corners in tightly into the corresponding corners so you have no gaps and they look neat from the front side.
Once you’ve attached all the extra side strips, finish by glueing all the remaining tabs around the edge of the letter.
You can see the rear tabs of the letters in the photo above. You can use these tabs for gluing/taping the letters to the wall or attaching the back panel. They help holding the shape better.
They look really fun on a table or bookshelf displayed in various ways. We’ve tried some fun words!

You could even make a 3D letter garland for a party, decorate your storage boxes or attach a monogram to a gift wrapping. I’m going to try out a few things with these cool alphabet templates and share on our blog later.
