| January/February 2013


DIY Personalized Wall Art

• 22-by-28-inch poster board
• 26 A to Z alphabet stencils, 4 inches tall (available at craft stores)
• Up to 26 photos (4 by 6 inches)
• Colored paper
• 22-by-28-inch picture frame
• Ruler
• Soft lead pencil
• Painter’s tape or removable tape
• Cutting mat
• Small utility knife and replacement blades

1. On a clean, flat work surface, place your poster board face-down and orient it vertically.

2. On an area next to your poster board, arrange your alphabet stencils in five rows: ABCDE, FGHIJK, LMNOP, QRSTU, VWXYZ.

3. Using your ruler and pencil, mark a 2-inch margin along the top and bottom of the poster board. Draw horizontal lines for each row every 4 inches with a 1-inch margin between rows.



4. Starting with letters A through E (row 1) tape the stencils to the poster board face-down. You will be working in reverse starting with the letter E on the left-hand side and ending with A on the far right. Space the letters evenly across the guideline. Carefully trace each stencil with your pencil.

5. Repeat Step 4 for the remaining rows—letters F through K (row 2), L through P (row 3), Q through U (row 4), and V through Z (row 5).
