Next, i planned the placement of the letters, on my old mountain scene painting. Here is a good tip! I attached the letters with craft glue, but I supported each letter with a few large dabs of hot glue. That allowed the letters to be held tight against the painting, while the craft glue sets. Make sure you check your spelling! Heres another tip, i marked my lightbulb holes with beads first.

Ive got my hands full this time. Thrifted Art, foam board, christmas Lights, spray paint. Hobby foam Paper, craft Knife, steel Ruler, glue gun. Craft Glue, glitter, drill, spade Bit, first, i planned my marquee letters. If youre attempting this at home, you could save a bit of time with pre-made cardboard letters, but the nice thing about making custom letters, is you can have custom sizing. I started by printing out my letters on regular paper, cutting them out, and then tracing them onto foam core board. Cut them out of the foam core, and you have these beauties. Then, i cut strips of hobby foam paper, to make my metal edges. The great thing about the foam paper, is it doesnt rip, it shapes well, and glues wonderfully to the edges of the foam core. Rustoleum hammered effect spray paint, mammography helped finish the look. And, soon, i had a stack of metal marquee sign letters.

I screwed my embroidery hoop to my diy wood crate table then placed the letters on either side.
Step one: Start by painting the thesis entire embroidery hoop. Since my middle name is neon i went for a bright shade of Yellow Green from my decoArt paint collection. Step two, now, its time to add some color to your canvas letters. I went for a bright shade of pink and added a subtle ombre effect.
