You & Me Art Work - Tutorial









I long time ago I made a Toilet Paper Roll Art Work
I thought it was pretty good, until Daddy Moz told me it looked like a giraffe 
I tried to fix it, no luck.
So
I found this on Pinterest

I love metal letters.
I have bought some in the past, but I really don't want to spend $20 plus on each letter, so I try it myself.


You need:
Cardboard letters
Black paint
Silver Paint
Brush
Paper Towel

Cardboard letter from Craft Shop (Spotlight)

Black & Silver paint

Paint  each letter black first

Wait to dry & squeeze silver over 
You can just slap the paint on.
Then let it half dry & use paper towel to rub some off.

Should have & nice metal look


I found this frame on the side of the road. 
(Hard Rubbish)
 I love that time of the year.

Daddy Moz cut to size & I painted with the same black paint.


Then placed on wall!






This was super cheap 

I love it!

  17. How do you make cardboard letters? Are they coming out of the frame or laying flat against wall?
    Super cute!

  31. Love this... Me & You by Kenny Chesney is our wedding song... and I have been searching for "over the bed" art. Thank you for a great idea! BUT.... I am having trouble finding the "&" - where did you get yours?

    1. Hi Leslie,
      I'm in Australia and I found the "&" at a country store called, Provincial.
      But I have seen them at trendy gift shops.
      If you had no luck at all, you could use thick cardboard (a box) and make an &. Paint it and use little blocks behind it to give it some dimension.
      Good Luck. I'd love to see what you end up with.
      Danielle
