For DIY Thursday here at Hello Luvvy, I thought I would show you luvvies a project I am working on for my baby boy's nursery. I have lots of projects to do before he gets here, so I figured there is no time like the present. This is an easy tutorial on how to make inexpensive circus letters! I have always loved the look of these but have never wanted to spend the cash. Now, I don't have to. Let's get started!
You will need:
-Cardboard letter(s) from your local craft store
-An exacto or box knife
-White craft paint
-A strand of white twinkle lights
First, use the box knife to carefully cut off the top of your letter. I slowly went around the edges before I tried to pull any of it off, but it mostly came off in one piece. Also, you will want to remove the zig-zag cardboard from your letter's interior. I was able to easily pull this out by hand.
Next, paint the inside of your letter white (or the color of your choice). My letter took about two layers of craft paint. It is a good idea to wait a few minutes to let the paint dry before you move to the next step.
Here, I used a pencil to make marks on the back where I wanted to cut the holes for the lights. You can either eyeball it or use a ruler if you prefer. I used the box knife to cut small Xs into the back of my letter.
Happy crafting, luvvies! xoxo
