EAT - Custom Letters

 I’m at it again, making all kinds of letters for the home.  You can see more HERE, HERE or even HERE. 

 

This time, it’s for the kitchen.  I took chipboard letters and covered them with recipes from my favorite magazine, Everyday Food.  Then glittered the edges and hung them with ribbon.  I needed something on this wall in my kitchen and I like how this turned out.  

 

Most of the recipes are white but I picked some with colors that would work well in my kitchen.

I used the German glass glitter here as I have used in other projects.  It’s beautiful and super shiny.  It comes in a bunch of colors but I think silver is my favorite.

Super Shine.

Want some of your own?  I’ll make ‘em for ya!  :-)

I’m linking this up to all my favorite parties.  Go and visit and be inspired by all their ideas!

Very clever! It's funny b/c I was looking on Etsy and Ebay for the same letters to use in my kitchen! I might try your approach instead - thanks for sharing!

I love how you used a food magazine to cover the letters. That really does encourage me to "EAT"! They look like they'd be such a fun addition to any kitchen! Thanks for the link!

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting about my countertops! I love this post on the letters...I may need to make some for my kitchen! Great idea!
Just to let you know I just did a new post on the counters with more photos and details in case you are interested!
Btw, I, too, love my old house. Lots of work to get it back to 'orginal charm' and not '80s 'hip' lol but the process is almost as fun as the end result!
