Handmade "Metallic" Letters

Even though I already posted once today with a BIG Park Family announcement I still want to stick with my goal of doing one post about Hunter's room this week.

So I'm starting with a favorite... the DIY letters that spell out Hunter's Name!

I was inspired by these 13" medal letters from Land of Nod but at $34 each NO THANK YOU! That would be $206 just for his name...

So I decided to DIY! I started out with some 12" paper Mache Letters from Jo Ann Fabrics you couldn't beat the price at only $4.49 each. ($26.94 total... cannot beat that difference)

I removed all stickers and gave the letters a good spray with Rustoleum oil Rubbed Bronze Spray Paint ($12.00)

After the letters dried overnight I stuck them to the wall using 3M Command Strips!
The results were AMAZING!

I love that the letters look like they are metallic and I saved a TON of money by doing this myself! Total cost came to $38.94.
