I refused to pay that much for something I could make, so here’s my knockoff version.
Wanna know how much this one cost me? Go ahead, guess.
Yeah, that’s definitely something I can handle.
I stocked up my 50% off coupons and headed to JoAnns to buy these cardboard letters.
They sell for $3.99 each and are 12” tall. With my coupons I only paid $2/letter, and that was the end of my spending since I had the rest of the supplies on hand.
First I hot-glued the letters together.
Then since I didn’t want this thing to fall apart, I took some sawtooth picture hangers and hammered them flat before nailing them on the back to ensure the letters stayed together.
I wanted to have mine look like one piece, similar to PB’s, so I decided to caulk.
Now normally I would have used a gun and the caulk in the tube, but I used up the rest of mine on my closet doors to headboard and keep forgetting to buy more.
Fortunately, when we bought our house 8 years ago our builder gave us a little touch-up kit which included this:
Works for me. Squeeze some between all the crevices, then take a damp cloth to wipe off the excess.
Once that was dry, I grabbed some Rustoleum Hammered spray paint leftover from my family room shelf project.
And guess what? It’s done! Quick and inexpensive.
I set mine on my mantle in front of a music sheet covered board, but you can easily hang it on your wall or set it out on its own.
