Introduction: Big Blocky Christmas Letters
Celebrate the holidays with a nice big, blocky and sparkly word on the mantle or shelf. It's a nice effect that looks much more solid than it is and can be made for very little money. Just how I like it.
Step 1: What You Need
- Bristol paper (100#)
- X-acto knife or scissors
- Krylon Metallic Shimmer spray paint
- Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint
Step 2: Print
Print out the attached PDF below. One There's one sheet for each of the four letters.
Step 3: Tape and Cut
Tape each of the sheets to a piece of the Bristol board and then cut out the letters
Step 4: Give It Depth
Now cut out 3" wide strips of the Bristol board and attach those to the letters with more tape. This requires lots of folding, bending, curling and repositioning. That's why I used masking tape here. It was very forgiving of mistakes.
With the letters ready to go, apply 2 coats of the Metallic Shimmer spray paint. Since this is paper, allow at least 15 minutes between coats.
When that is dry, apply one coat of the Glitter Blast. This stuff comes out FAST so one coat should be plenty.
Now just let that all dry completely and place somewhere in your house.
