Space Themed Father's Day Letter Craft 'DAD'

Our space inspired Father's day craft letters are a great idea for kids to make as a gift for someone who is out of this world. Although requiring some adult supervision, kids of all ages will be able to achieve an amazing galaxy effect using acrylic paint and have fun while doing it too. We chose to decorate 'DAD' but you can pick something different from our great range of wooden letters available here.

We painted the letters with a base coat of black acrylic paint and left to dry. Next we used a dry paint brush to flick paint at the letters, creating splatters of colour. Use different colours to create a layered effect, the colours we used are: Spring Green, Periwinkle, Golden Sun and Lush Pink. Leave drying time between each colour so they do not run together. When you are happy with your galaxy effect, leave to dry, you could then varnish your letters. We would recommend using all purpose glitter varnish for that extra space sparkle.

This can be a messy craft technique and acrylic painy may stain fabrics and some surfaces. We would recommend covering tables with a suitable plastic tablecloth and protecting clothes with an apron, alternatively this would be a great craft to do outside on a sunny day.
