what you need

Step by Step

  1. Create a letter stencil.  There are two options for this, you can either print off the letter you require from the internet (making sure it’s approx 10cm high) or you can buy a papermache letter from places such as Hobbycraft or The Range for approx. £1 and use to draw round.

2. Place the stencil centrally on your canvas and draw round.  Draw as lightly as possible, although any pencil marks can be erased afterwards.

3. With a steady hand paint the letter the colour of your choice (metallics are a particular favourite of mine at the moment!) with the acrylic paint.  Allow first coat to dry and then paint a second time.

Step 3 - Paint your letter

4. Once fully dry rub out any visible pencil lines.

5. You can also add a small number after the letter as per scrabble tiles, again check the internet to get the correct number or you can choose a specific number if the canvas is for a birthday present?!

And there you have it. Your very own personalised letter canvas.  So go on, have fun.  All for only £5!
