Spear & Jackson 50m No 8 Pink Brickline
We've decided to decorate the letters that spell FUN, but you might choose to decorate letters that spell out your name.
Choose whatever pattern, design or coloured paper you like. We selected from some designs in a book, but you could re-use some old wrapping paper, which would work just as well. We opted for cool spots.
Put the letters on the wrapping paper and use a pencil to trace around them.
Then use your scissors to cut around the letter shapes you've just made. Be sure to stay on the inside of the pencil line.
Apply a light coating of glue to the timber letters. Then line up your paper cut-outs and stick them on top. Do this for all your letters.
To give your letter art a glossy finish, paint a coating of glue on top of each letter.
There you go! A FUN letter art project that not only looks awesome but is easy to do.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
