I gathered a few supplies: the pizza box, cheap picture frames, Glossy Black Anita's craft paint, a foam paint brush, a sheet of paper, fabric and a sharpie and got started!
I am no good at free handing anything, so I found a font I liked. I decided to save ink and just trace the letters from my computer screen with a pencil.
Sure, they're a little uneven.. Meh, doesn't bother me.
I cut the letters out.
At first, because I'm dumb sometimes, I thought I would have to trace the E backwards on the pizza box before I finally realized that I could just rotate it and have the same result. :\
So, tracing them on the printed size of the box is what I did.
Cut them out with scissors and an x-acto knife.
I painted them black with craft paint.
While they were drying, I painted three 8x11 picture frames black as well.
As the frames and the letters were drying, I cut and ironed the fabric I used which just so happened to be a thrifted sheet.
First I put the fabric inside the frame and tried hot gluing the letters to the front, so changing the fabric for whatever reason would be easier. Note to self: Hot glue doesn't stick well to glass.
So I had to put the letters inside the frame, no problem, the cardboard was thin enough.
The final result:
I personally am in love with how they turned out!
The best part is, since I had everything on hand already, this project was FREE! If you wanted to do this and didn't have it all on hand, it would still be cheap.
$3 for the craft paint.
$1 for each frame.
$.99 for a pack of 4 foam brushes.
$.25 for a thrifted (bleach spot in the center of it) sheet
You can find cardboard free anywhere.
$5.25 before taxes for an easy to do project that will make a nice addition to any kitchen/dining room!
