This is a total random post but I was so proud of my craftiness over the weekend,I felt the need to share.
My sister Aishling was doing up a playroom for her little boy and really wanted his name up on the wall. After searching all over the Internet,the cheapest she could get in Ireland with P&P was approx. €50 per letter!! Crazy! There probably is cheaper out there but we couldn't find it if there is!
So I decided to take it upon myself to get a bit crafty it couldn't be that hard after all............and it isn't :)
I started off on Microsoft word. Go into Word Art,decide what font you want and stretch the letter to fit the A4 page. Then simply cut your letters out.
I went to our local hardware shop and bought a sheet of mdf (3/4" thickness) and traced the letters onto the board. The mdf cost €20 and I only ended up using half of it. I bought a large sheet just in case I messed up some of the letters and had to re-do them,luckily that didn't happen :)
I must admit I had help,Ger cut the letters out using a jig saw and I sanded. Thanks G!
Hope ye all had a great weekend.
