Metallic Letter DiY – Wall Decor from Homemaking Delight

When we got some furniture for our home, we ended up with loads of styrofoam. Instead of throwing it all away, I thought of reusing by making some simple wall decorations out of it and got the idea of this simple wall decoration – Metallic letter – ‘D’ to mark my territory at home. 😀

I wanted to do something special for my kitchen using the styrofoam. With the cabinets covering the wall on both sides, the space above the stove top felt so lonely. So, I decided to hang out my cute little hand-made wall decor there. It is really simple and easy to make with the things you have in hand. Just cut the letter from the styrofoam in your preferred size, then cover it with foil and then rub it on & off with polish. How hard could that be, huh? Try it out & decorate your kitchen or kid’s room using your hand-made wall decor to give it a nice personal touch. I bet it would catch the eyes of your guests too. 😀
