I got the idea for this project on a craft blog featured on "One Pretty Thing" recently and decided it was just the thing for a large blank wall in the house we've been in for a little over a year. I wanted to use papier mache letters but I could not find what I wanted, so I started with the wreath. I found the font I wanted and DH enlarged the letters correspond with the size of the wreath. Then I traced the letters on foam board and cut them out with a utitlity knife. Next I hot-glued a long strip made from cereal boxes and taped together along the edge of the cut out letter (to give the letter depth, so it wouldn't be flat). I painted the cardboard edge brown and then glued scrapbook paper to the foam board. Lastly, I "antiqued" the letters by rubbing some watered-down paint around the edges. We hung them above the sofa, and now our house is really a home, a place I dearly love to be! The paper in the "H" is a dog bone pattern, for our three beloved dogs; the striped paper in the "M" matches my window treatments, and the music paper in the "E" represents our love for music (my husband and I met in music school and will have been married 32 years this December!). Thanks for looking!
