One of the easiest and most economical ways to add personality and artwork to one’s home is to do it yourself. Art projects can be fun family projects or personal journey’s of self-expression. Best of all, many projects can be done with even the most limited art skills. The internet is filled with great ideas for projects that can be customized to fulfill your own needs and interests. Here are three great DIY projects that feature word wall art:
Plot out the placement of the letters to spell out your phrase and apply the vinyl letters to your background piece of art. Overpaint the entire piece and when dry, pull off the vinyl letters revealing pieces of the underlying art behind the empty letters. The result is a “reverse” print that is truly a one of a kind piece. Frame or leave unframed as you prefer.
Many printing stores such as FedEx Printing, Stapes or a local printing company will be able to print out your document on their large printers for very little money. Email them the file (based on their instructions) and it will be ready for pickup shortly thereafter. Simply frame, hang and enjoy!
You may wish to paint or decoupage some of your letters - this is a great place for a lot of creativity! Once you have all your letters assembled, start laying them out in a manner that fits your space - it’s completely up to you. Hang your letters with movable picture hanging strips that are available in hardware or stationary stores.
