Recycled Wall Art

This is a project made almost entirely of the many leaflets we seem to get through our door - take away menus, local news fliers and other random papers. Although time consuming, the resulting poster looks good and it is quite a therapeutic process.

Finished Poster

1. Cut out letters from various leaflets  and sort them into piles according to letters
2. Get a piece of card (mine was 44 x 37 - but it can be any size)
3. Starting in the top left corner, use a glue stick to stick letters to spell desired words - here the possibilities are endless - I chose to do some of my favourite sayings or expressions but you could do books quotes, inspirational quotes - use your imagination!

NB. Try to mix up the letters so you are not spelling a word using letters all in the same colour or font

I now have a stash of letters all ready for another wordy project!

Love Rebecca
