A cardboard letter is a great piece that draws attention of each and every person passing by; especially, if it is added with some extra items like aluminum foil and exclusive paint. It is a perfect showpiece that enhance the beauty of your drawing room or even the living room. This awesome artistic work seems difficult to undertake, but actually it is pretty simple. You just need some most common items like cardboard letters, aluminum foil, Elmer’s glue, and paint to make it your own.
Step-1 Collecting the necessary items. You can buy a cardboard letter and other elementary items from the market or make your desired cardboard letter of your own. Letters with a plain shape like- L, M, N, T…will not be a problem, but shapes like S, O, U….will surely bring some trouble with them. However, you can take help from wood-shop to get a shape like S, O, U; otherwise, you can make it all by yourself. First, take a hardboard paper and a cutter then cut the board with your desired letter shape and place it on a cardboard to get the shape on it. After cutting out the shape, polish it to specify the shape.
Step-2 Choose your desired paint or varnish and splash it on the cardboard letter. Now, wait until the cardboard letter gets fully dry. Painting or varnishing on the cardboard seems to be an easy job, but no one else can do a better job than a varnishing pro. Though painting on the aluminum foil will be simple, yet a good effort is expected to get a perfect look.
Step-3 Now bring it to your drawing or living room and place them as shown in the picture or in any other way you think it would enhance the beauty to the place where you are placing it.
That’s all! Awesome DIY letter on the cheap!
