Paper Mache Letters

Posted by MAKMU ta On Sunday, March 25, 2012 No comments

I've been wanting some "EAT" letters in my kitchen but just haven't gotten around to buying them.  I saw this on Pinterest one day and pinned it to my project board.  I could do that.  I have cardboard laying around and paper mache is easy, I think.  It's been a while.

I started by choosing a font I liked in Word and made the letters really big.  I cut them out and traced them onto cardboard.  Remember, you need the front and back of the letters.

Cut strips of a cereal box to create the depth of your letters and tape to the front and back.

After constructing, it's time to paper mache.  I mixed one cup of water with one cup of flour.  Rip some newspaper into strips, I used a phonebook.  Dip the newspaper into the mixture and cover your letters.  Allow to dry completely.  I only used one layer but you could do another if you feel like it.

After my letters were dry, I painted them with red craft paint.

Voila!  Some DIY for the kitchen.  Think of all the letters you could make.
