When I finally got back to my apartment last Friday night my brain was fried and I needed an activity to occupy myself while I watched crappy movies on Netflix. There's a big blank wall in my kitchen and since my other masking tape project turned out so well, I decided to do a little variation.
I love this quote from Alice in Wonderland (which I originally found here), so I downloaded a new font (for free here), printed it out, then used my masking tape/wax paper technique to transfer it to the wall.
It took me a few hours to complete, but I love the effect and the whole project only cost $10!
See the full DIY instructions after the jump!
What you'll need:
- tape (I used the 2" version of this)
- wax paper
- masking tape
- permanent marker (not black)
After printing out the word/shape that you want, tape it behind a piece of wax paper.
Fill in the letters with permanent marker. Remove the wax paper.
Cover the letters with masking tape.
Flip the wax paper over and cut out the letters.
You should be able to remove the wax paper and stick your letters to the wall! If you're looking for a less time consuming project it would be fun to do one giant letter (just use lots of rows of masking tape that slightly overlap).
If you try this out I'd love to see pics of the results!
