Do people keep walking into your room, mistaking it for theirs? Here's a way to show them its your room!

You will need:
  • Paint
  • Newspaper
  • Scissors
  • Sticky Tape
  • Tissue Paper or Kitchen Roll
  • Cardboard Box Card
  • PVA Glue
Pick a letter to make. It might be the initial of your name, or favourite football team.

Then take a look in books or magazines for different styles of fancy lettering.
When you've decided which style you like best, draw out your chosen letter onto some cardboard box card.
When you're happy with the design, carefully cut it out.
Pad out one side of the letter by scrunching up sheets of newspaper into ball and sausage shapes.
Stick the scrunched up newspaper balls and sausages o the cardboard letter using plenty of sticky tape, but make sure you can still see the outline of the letter.
When done, you should have something that looks like this.
Now mix up some PVA glue with equal parts water.
Coat the letter with PVA glue, then add on pieces of tissue paper or kitchen roll.
Try to paste the tissue paper or kitchen roll on as neatly as you can. Tuck the tissue underneath the letter, too.

The idea is to cover the front of the letter in two layers of PVA glue and tissue paper or kitchen roll.
When done, leave it to dry.

Once it's dry, it will harden.
Next, paint the letter using either poster or acrylic paint.

It's a good idea to paint the whole thing black first.
Then take some scrunched up tissue paper and dip it in some metallic paint.

Dab off the excess, and then wipe the tissue over the letter.
Cover the whole letter to give a great metallic effect, then allow it to dry.
Your letter doesn't have to be huge - you can make them any size you like!

Try it yourself!
