Love Letters

I just thought I'd share a little craft project I did for my mum's birthday present. I bought some plain papier mache letters from The Works, which spelled out "LOVE". I painted them white using acrylic paint-it took about four coats to get it opaque.

Then I painted on a pretty but simple floral design, using red, green, yellow ochre and blue acrylic paints. I think they ended up looking very cute, and perfect to display on a shelf or a mantel piece. 

What do you think of this project? Do you ever give handmade presents?
