Who knew creating wire word wall art (try saying that 10 times in a row quickly), would be so easy to make?!! I’m not saying my first attempt was perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s definitely a hobby I’ll try perfecting.
Creating personal wall art for your home adds a personal touch, that’s unique and a little different.
Weather you have a favorite motto or mantra, or possibly like to greet your guest will a little humor, creating a DIY wire wall word is a great place to express your words into art.
I will definitely be making these wire words for my friend and their children as presents. It’s so personal and very cost effective.
A three letter word in wire costs around £1.00 to make. Once you’ve got your tools, the wire world is your oyster.
What you’ll need:
- Wire cutters, click here to see which ones.
- 2mm aluminum wire, click here to see what I bought (cheapest I could find on ebay).
- Pliers, click here to see which ones.
- Someone with good hand writing skills or a computer and printer to print off your desired word
Once you have you chosen word printed or written, the next part is so simple.
Bend about 2cm (that will go into the wall so the word looks like it floating)
Then start following you word on the paper.
Once complete, bend 2cm of wire on the last letter to attached the other side in the wall.
There’s lots of handwrite inspo online to get more tips.
