Paper Mache Letters

I've been wanting some "EAT" letters in my kitchen but just haven't gotten around to buying them.  I saw this on Pinterest one day and pinned it to my project board.  I could do that.  I have cardboard laying around and paper mache is easy, I think.  It's been a while.

I started by choosing a font I liked in Word and made the letters really big.  I cut them out and traced them onto cardboard.  Remember, you need the front and back of the letters.

Cut strips of a cereal box to create the depth of your letters and tape to the front and back.

After constructing, it's time to paper mache.  I mixed one cup of water with one cup of flour.  Rip some newspaper into strips, I used a phonebook.  Dip the newspaper into the mixture and cover your letters.  Allow to dry completely.  I only used one layer but you could do another if you feel like it.

After my letters were dry, I painted them with red craft paint.

Voila!  Some DIY for the kitchen.  Think of all the letters you could make.
