I just love this time of year! Everything is so festive and happy. Of course there is the flip side of that too which means this time of year is exhausting, stressful, hectic, and more! But mostly I love it.
I was perusing Crate & Barrel recently and saw these metal Ho Ho Ho letters and just loved them. I am always looking for a project so I immediately thought about how I could remake them myself on the cheap. I remembered I had a few paper mache letters at home and decided to try spray painting them to see if they would hold up. It worked like a charm so I got more letters and sprayed them all with high gloss red paint and then did a final coat of red glitter spray paint over the letters. Easy as can be right!?
You will need:
H's and O's in wood or paper mache
High Gloss red spray paint
Red Glitter spray paint
If you want your O tipped like mine then you will need E6000 adhesive
Sprig of berries or something similar
I sprayed all my letters on all sides letting them dry entirely before adding a coat of glitter spray paint in red. I used a very light coat of the glitter just so it had a tiny bit of sparkle.
Once they were dry I angled the O in the direction I wanted it to be and added E6000 glue to the spot where the O touches the H and then added a piece of wire around the two letters to hold them together until they dried.
After the glue dried I then cut a piece of grosgrain ribbon and added a little sprig of berries and pine cones.
I also remade this centerpiece from Target by adding quite a few pine cones and sprigs of pine and berries to spruce it up. I got it on clearance last year but it looked sparse to me so it was an easy fix!
I probably should have Ho Ho Ho out but I just used 2 sets on either side of my centerpiece and I'm very happy with them.
An easy and inexpensive craft to make which is my favorite kind!
