The wall in my house has been bare for a while now and I decided it would be great to have something simple but cool that is representative of us and so I set out.
Little humours: that is greatest, not gas. Lol.
Below are the supplies I got. you can get everything except the wood boards from your local art supply shop. The wood boards were given to me by our local carpenter.
The supplies used include wood boards, alphabet cut outs, blue spray paint, purple spray paint, red spray paint, gold spray paint, adhesive spray, old newspaper, masking tape and scissors.
I wanted gold to be the colours of the alphabet and so with this in mind, I laid the wood boards on old newspaper outside the house and sprayed them gold. You want to do this in a well ventilated area. The wood was allowed to dry for 30minutes and repsrayed again in gold.
For the bigger board, after the gold paint had dried I divided the board by 1/2 to 1/3and then I placed a masking tape across that division. I did this because unlike the words hope and faith that I wanted in gold, I wanted the word ‘LOVE’ to be red. After placing the masking tape I, covered the top part with newspaper and sprayed the lower paint with red paint. 30minutes later I resprayed the lower part with red paint.
Once the red paint was dried I removed the paper used to cover the top half and then spelt out ‘the GreAteSt’ on the top gold part and then ‘LOVE’ on the bottom part.
After one hours the cut out alphabets were gently peeled off, Hope, Faith and the GreAteSt LOVE, to reveal the colours beneath and the completed work.
This is what they look like.
Now to place on the wall.
I had the carpenter come drill the wood and then nail the wall to hang my beautiful home made deco.
You could even make it as a gift for a friend or family member.
Please remember to share the post.
