DIY "EAT" Letters

By 12:45 PM

I wanted to share with you all today my latest DIY project. I have been wanting "EAT" letters for kitchen for a while now but had not seen any to purchase that would fit the space where I was wanting to put them: i.e. a column in my kitchen. So when I had the idea to make my own I figured why not try? They turned out to be pretty easy to make and relatively inexpensive and I LOVE the finished result. 


To make your own "EAT" letters are you need is the items shown in the picture below which include: cardboard letters E, A, & T (I bought these at Hobby Lobby for $2.50 a piece), Mod Podge, sponge brush, and scrapbook paper (I decided on this pretty postcard paper I found at Hobby Lobby and purchased 4 sheets although I didn't even end up using 2 of the sheets). 


All I did was cut strips and pieces of the scrapbook paper and used Mod Podge to glue it on to the letters. I then went over each letter with an extra coat of Mod Podge to keep it all intact and make it look pretty. The project took me less than an hour and cost me less than $10! 

Here is another picture of the finished project:

    1. I used the double sided sticky tape to put mine up that you can get at any craft store.

    1. I just used the double sided sticky foam tape you can purchase at any craft store (you can see it is the white rolled up foam in the first picture) and used it to apply it directly to the wall.
