This is an inexpensive and easy 3D foil wrapped, embossed style initial letter made with household items you already have at home. This art work would look nice as a rustic accent on your mantle, framed or hung on the wall. Another cute idea is to add this as an accent to your wreath!
Total Time: 30 minutes
- hot glue and hot glue gun
- thin cardboard or cereal box
- pen or pencil
- Draw out letter(s) you want to use as your initial.
- Cut the letter out.
- Use a piece of foil larger than your letter and use your hands to flatten the foil.
- Sketch the design you want on your letter as a guide.
- Trace your art work over with hot glue (or regular school glue - just takes time to dry).
- Place foil over designed letter and fold one side.
- Flip letter over to the main side and using your hands lightly go over your art work to create the embossed like-look.
- Once your letter is coming out how you like it, completely wrap letter with foil. Cut any areas you need to wrap.
- Add finishing touches by lightly creasing the letters with your hands/fingers.
