This is a great project for adding some shimmer to your living space, and it's incredibly easy — it's made from pennies. This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at The Crafted Sparrow.
For this project, you will need:
-- Paper mache letters
-- Craft glue or hot-glue gun and glue sticks
-- Copper acrylic paint
-- Foam brush
-- Clear sealant spray
You can find most of these items at a craft store.
Make copper letters
Take the paper mache letters and paint them completely with the copper paint. You may need to do a few coats to make sure the color is completely opaque. Let the paint dry completely. Then, use the craft glue or hot-glue gun to glue the pennies on the copper letter. Use caution if using a hot-glue gun — they can be incredibly dangerous! Allow the glue to dry completely.
Put up the copper letters in your living space and enjoy!
