"Mermaid Paper Mache Letters- Mermaid Birthday, Baby Shower, Bridal Shower Paper mache letters measure 8 1/4\" tall by 5\" wide. They are lightweight but stand on their own.. with the exception of the letters J, F, P and the #4. But I include double sided sticky pads that allow the letters to stand freely. If wanting to place these outside, I would suggest the use of double sided sticky tabs placed at the base of the letters to prevent them from blowing over. These are hand painted and carefully designed and decorated with quality cardstock. Perfect for desert tables, as centerpieces, for photos or simply as room decor."
