Kayla saw a great idea when we were at Hobby Lobby with our friend Michele the last time we went shopping. You basically take pictures of letters and then put them together online using a photo editing program. How to create letter art is a simple project that can be done at home with a very small budget.
She and I went walking one day in the park and she found all kinds of letters and textures to create three words for me — love, joy, and peace.
These three words will be hung in my home during the holidays this year.
I'm going to change the color of them to black and white so that it is all uniform and then get some really cool frames to glitter up and hang around the home.
Creating them is very simple. Here are the steps we took.
- Take up close photos of letters: First figure out what letters you need for your word and then look for really unique lettering to create your letter art. Once you do, snap away and make sure to take several angles.
- Create a collage of the letters: To create your word, you need a photo editing software. Kayla just uses PicMonkey.com for hers. It's free and super easy to use.
- Save them to your computer and then order prints: Once you have your design the way you want it, save your creations and then upload them to a photo printing site and then hang in your home.
I love how creative she can be. She just always has had an artistic gift and I do believe she has found her passion in life.
