There are a plethora of lovely large letters on Etsy and even in main stream craft stores, but they are so expensive! Well not really, but I just can't see putting $10-15 dollars per letter for cardboard (mainstream stores) when I can make at least five letters for about $25 when complete. Now this is a work in progress, but I wanted to take a minute and share with everyone else. I bought two half pieces of MDF at the hardware store for $20.95. You can also buy a full piece for the same price, but I have a crossover SUV and it wouldn't have fit. So back to what I was saying. I brought them home, drew my letters on the board then had the hubby cut them out with a jigsaw. Here are the results thus far.
As you can see just by re-arranging the letters, taking one away and replacing it you can create multiple words which can cut down on your cost. I will keep everyone updates as this progresses. I plan on using these for photo-props for my Christmas cards. I hope you all enjoy.
