So, I am still trying to pull everything together in my office for the big reveal, this week I am desperately trying to fill the now completely blank wall that that my shelving once covered. I have already gave my dingy old desk a $10 makeover, and have even made a few cute bowls to hold miscellaneous items. The desk itself is starting make me feel happy with the decor, but the big blank wall just keeps staring me down screaming for something! I wanted to do something different, and inspirational, but out of the norm. I love the look of creating wall art with the letters you can find at any craft store, but I didn’t want them to look like every other set you see on Pinterest, so I decided to hang them in a fun new way. I hung them from each other so that they were vertical, and I love how they look. Plus, they take up a large portion of the wall, so that makes me happy! lol
Wall Art Letters, decorated as you like
I laid out my letters so that I could get a good idea of how I wanted them spaced. After I was happy with the arrangement I cut my twine, for each letter I used about 1 foot of twine.
I started with the bottom letter so that I could see how it would hang once it was tied up. I added a small drop of glue to the back of the letter and wrapped the twine around it a few times. I than added a few more drops of glue just to make sure it was in place.
I took the other end of the twin and wrapped it around the next letter using the same process. Repeat this process until all of the letters are connected. I allowed the glue to dry completely for a few hours and than used a small brad nail to attach just the top letter to the wall and allowed the rest of the letters to hang naturally.
If you are having trouble getting your letters to lay the way you like, you can always use a bit of sticky tack to hold them in place.
To decorate these letters I did two things, some of the letters are just covered in scrapbook paper that I had on hand. I just traced the letters on to the paper and glued them in place.
The others I used a crackle paint (the same technique I used here) to give it an old worn out look.
