Easy Cardboard Letters

Written By petite karinne on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 | 8:22 AM

During this month's Craft Challenge, we are coming up with many ideas to recycle cardboard. I made cardboard drawers and had these flaps leftover to use. 

Ha! I love letter decor and needed a pop of red in my kitchen so I decided to hang up the word "EAT".  This is just too easy peasy! 

I drew on the letters. 

Then cut them out. 

Wanting a layered distressed look, I started painting the first layer with a turquoise blue.

When it dried, I applied a layer of red paint. 

Well I never sanded cardboard before but gave it a try. It worked.

I hung the lightweight letters on the wall with two-sided tape. 

This is so easy, my son can make them... for me... for every room that I want to express a word! 
Can you believe it?!?! 

Just what the island needed... a pop of red! 

What are you doing with your leftover cardboard? Recycle with decor? There are so many options!
