I checked my home improvement store and all the letters they had were ugly. Ug-ly.
I guess I just gave myself a new project. Hmmph.
Create a Custom Inexpensive Door Letter
Supplies I used:
- Leftover photo mat from framing a piece of art. You can get remnants cheap from your local framing place. You can also use a heavy duty chipboard.
- X-acto knife
- Spray paint – whichever color you prefer
- Clear spray paint/sealer – same stuff I used to make the coasters
- Rubber cement – see the Book Project post for a picture
It sounds complicated but it really wasn’t! I had everything except the gold spray paint already on hand.
I printed out a big letter “A.” The font is Andalus (pretty sure it came with Microsoft Word), size 385, making it about 3.5 inches tall.
I cut a square around the letter and taped it to a small leftover piece of photo mat. I used a mat instead of cardstock or chipboard because it’s very heavy and I thought it would be the most durable.
Then I used my can of Rust-oleum Satin Clear to seal it (same stuff I use for making coasters).
