I stumbled on a box of these cute cardboard letters at a bootfair a couple of weeks ago, and I’m always up for a new crafty challenge so I had no choice but to pick up a few! Being seriously indecisive by nature I had no idea which letters to choose, but Mum was on hand with a cool and very current suggestion: XOXO (I’m looking at you Beyoncé!).
This letter art is seriously simple to do, and gives you a great looking result for less than a tenner!
You will need:
- Cardboard letters of your choice (you can find similar ones to mine from Hobbycraft for around £1 each)
- Rust Oleum Painter’s Touch Small Brush Pot in Gold
- Paint brush
Firstly, remove any stickers and debris from your letters. There’s no need to prepare the surface so you can get straight on and paint.
I chose to paint mine one side at a time, allowing them to dry for a while in between. Start with the front, then the sides and then the back. I gave them two coats so the gold would really stand out!
And would you believe that’s it? I told you it was simple! Display them on your coffee table, brighten up your desk or even hang them on the wall!
Thanks for reading, until next time!
