Tutorial on How to make your own Alphabet Wall
Paper Mache Letters, Foam letters, Wood Letters
2 Acrylic Paints – colors of your choice
Two way tape
Round sponge brush
Buy your Paper Mache Letters from you local arts and crafts store. I got mine in Hobby Lobby on a 50% sale. Choose the letter styles and sizes you like, I picked different fonts, sizes and styles to achieve the look I was looking for. My letters are made of Paper Mache, foam, and wood.
It took some time to find the right combination of letters to achieve the look I wanted.
Before you start painting the letters decide how the letters are going to be placed on your wall, lay the letters on the floor and arrange them until you obtain look you like the best. I decided on 4 rows with different amount of letters in each row.
I didn’t want the arrangement to have the square outline look.
Paint your letters with the acrylic paint chosen. I got Magenta and Sweet Mint. I always made sure to switch colors.
The next day or when your letters are completely dry, decorate them with patterns you like. I chose to decorate the big letters only. I did the polka dots with the round sponge brush and striped letters with Painters tape.
When all letters are dry, now its time to put them up on your wall. On back of each letter I placed a piece of Two Way tape on several places and placed letters on the wall. Make sure your letters are just the way you want them to be. I didn’t place them in the straight line but I did follow the pattern I liked.
Some of the Foam letters already had sticky tape on the back. I noticed these sticky tape don’t hold very well on walls, so I reinforced them with the Two Way Tape from Lowes and have had no issues since them.
Thank you and Happy Crafting!!!
