For Posters

One of the most popular uses of cut out letters is in making posters. They are particularly helpful for small kids who are not able to paint letters in one size. To use these letters for posters, you need to first download them from a website in a font of your choice. Make sure that the font is a legible one when seen from far and the size of the letters are not too small. Involve your child in this, as your child might want a more eye-catching font. Once you are done downloading, cut the individual letters with a pair of scissors and glue them on a sheet of card paper. Another way to use them is to cut out each letter along its outline and use it as a stencil. You can place these stencil letters on the card paper and spray paint it. This will give a very beautiful look, without you having to put in much effort.

You can then use super glue to attach these letters on the walls of your kid's room or on their door. For a more cheerful look, you can get these letters painted and then attach them on walls. If you are not keen on using glue on walls or doors, you can also use hanging wood letters. These are mounted on walls with the help of colorful ribbons.
