During this month's Craft Challenge, we are coming up with many ideas to recycle cardboard. I made cardboard drawers and had these flaps leftover to use.
Ha! I love letter decor and needed a pop of red in my kitchen so I decided to hang up the word "EAT". This is just too easy peasy!
I drew on the letters.
Then cut them out.
Wanting a layered distressed look, I started painting the first layer with a turquoise blue.
When it dried, I applied a layer of red paint.
Well I never sanded cardboard before but gave it a try. It worked.
I hung the lightweight letters on the wall with two-sided tape.
This is so easy, my son can make them... for me... for every room that I want to express a word!
Can you believe it?!?!
Just what the island needed... a pop of red!
What are you doing with your leftover cardboard? Recycle with decor? There are so many options!
