First thing you’ll need to do is know what word you want to sculpt and how big or small you want it to turn out.

Start out with small and simple words as you get the hang of twisting and turning the wire. Once you’re comfortable, you can move on to things like multiple words or sentences.

You can also do some research into what font you want to sculpt out and use that as your guide.

DIY Word Art Room Decor

This DIY is for all of you creative people who has ever liked song lyrics a bit too much, or have been inspired by a quote, or even appreciated a piece of writing. This word art piece that you’re about to make, infuses art and your favorite aspect of creative arts to make a stylish and modern decoration to personalize your space!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
  • Newspaper (laid out on top of your table)
  • Paintbrush of your choice (preferably thick bristles)
  • Gold Gel pen
  • Blackboard Paint
  • Canvas

~

Taking your paintbrush, apply the first coat of paint onto your canvas making sure you cover the corners and edges as well. Leave to dry for about 10 minutes.
Layer on the second coat of paint, focusing on the front of the canvas and not worrying too much about the edges. This coat doesn’t have to be neatly brushed on and the thicker, the better. Leave this to dry for about 30 minutes to one hour, depending on your paint and how thick you apply it.
Get the text that you’ll be writing out and have it in front of you, especially if it’s quite a long piece of writing. I’ve chosen a few paragraphs from Lily Myers’ slam poem entitled “Shrinking Women”. At this point, you can cross out, edit and correct anything on paper, which may save you from one tiny mistake that ruins your whole word art piece.
Practice the handwriting that you want to use beforehand on a separate piece of paper, then go ahead and begin writing on your painted canvas. You can choose how you want to write your piece; the options are endless!

There you have it! A personalized piece of room decor to wow your guests!

Take a sheet of your tissue paper and fold it in half, then cut that in half.

You should have 2 sheets of folded paper. Lay it down on a flat surface and begin to cut thin strips using your scissors, not cutting all the way up – leave about an inch.

Unfold the tissue paper and you should have a fringe detail on either side and an un-cut middle.

Roll the un-cut section of the tissue paper as shown in the photo below.
