Preparing a surprise for a party is sometimes quite daunting. The setting, the accessories, the decoration, the theme, or the knicks-knacks need to be placed and harmonized so then the place is not messy. In fact, sometimes you just need to make it simple. Without such complicated decorations or accessories, a party or a surprise can always be fun. It is by using some large cardboard letters. Of course, you can buy it all at once to write down your expressions for the surprise, but it will be much more intimate and meaningful if you create it by yourself. You just need to make some large letters die. Actually, you can also use anything other than cardboard to make it last much longer.
Basically, you can make almost everything out by yourself, including the large letters DIY. But, if you want to make it on another level, then you need to make it from wood. In this case, you can use any kind of wood. In fact, you can recycle wood in random forms. But, before you start cutting it, you need to glue all the wood into the size of the letters that you need. Then, after making it into one size, you can start sketching out your letter. After that, cutting out based on the letter sketched.
If you want to make big letters from styrofoam, then you need to be more delicate. You need to be more careful because styrofoam is different from wood or cardboard. It needs a more gentle touch to create large letters DIY. So, before you start sketching the styrofoam with the letters you want, make sure that you have a sharp cutter. That is very important so then the styrofoam can be cut into the right form. If you already have then you can start sketching and cut it out.
The bigger the letters, you need to have sturdier material to use. But, if you want to get a nice display, you can use the foam core. Other than that, to start making the large letters DIY, you need to have some glue stick, a ruler, a hot glue gun, an Exacto knife, and a self-healing mat. First of all, after sketching the letters, you need to start cutting the foam but make sure that the self-healing mat is under the foam so then the floor or the desk surface is not scratched. Then, use the wasted foam cord to create the sides of the letters. Then, glue the sides onto the letters.
