Make Hand-Drawn MDF Letters

This particular project began with an idea for a Christmas gift. Every year for Christmas we draw names out of hat at our family’s Thanksgiving get-together. The loose rule is that the gifts must be handmade. In a previous video we made a photo plaque as one gift, which was for a nephew. The gift I personally made was for my sister.

I knew that I wanted to make her some large letters to hang on the wall, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do to make them different. Through a few not-so-slick texts from my wife we obtained her favorite Bible verses. What was given was 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. The Biblical text is based around the word love. It also just so happens that the word love has four letters and the scripture in question had four verses. So I decided to put each verse inside each of the four letters.

To make them a little more unique I decided to hand draw each letter instead of using a printed template. Here is the result and how I did it.

When it’s all said and done, this project is extremely simple and a bunch of fun. This may be a project we re-visit in the future with some different ideas.
