Do you go with the trends or fads? Colors and styles change, but there are basic elements in design that are just considered classic. The alphabet is one of those classic design staples. As long as people are reading and writing, there will be art, shirts, games, cards, etc. with the letters of our alphabet.
After doing my cheap wall art post, I knew I wanted to try an idea using the whole alphabet. This project was so cheap and easy! I believe you can save so much money and get the same look as expensive alphabet paintings and wall art.
The first thing I did was buy a package of the cardboard chip letters in the Target dollar section.
I laid them out in alphabet order with spacing them in a way that got all the letters to fit on a piece of cardstock paper in a 8 x 10 frame.
Once I liked how they looked, I picked up one at a time and used a glue stick to glue that letter in place.
Once my letters were in place, there was glue oozing out under the letters. If that happens to you too, don’t worry about it. The glue dries clear! Once my letters were all dry, I placed my new art in a frame I bought for a quarter at a thrift store, spray painted, and sanded to look rustic.
That’s it! My new wall art piece was complete. For about $1.25 I made a fun art piece!
I love how easy this piece was to create.
If you love alphabet projects, you probably would like my graffiti t-shirt.
I made this piece as part of a little collection of creations for my sweet friend and her sweet foster daughter.
Thank you to all of you who have written, texted, commented, or emailed encouraging messages after reading my post processing life and how I cared for our last foster placements. It has meant so much.
I have peace and feel so blessed that I get to continue to love these sweet kids and celebrate life with them! They are a gift!
