Make your own giant 3D numbers and letters

I recently celebrated my sons 2nd birthday, so it was the perfect opportunity to get creative. I wanted to attempt making a 3D number to use for a photo with him, and to decorate the food table.

If you fancy having a go yourself, all you’ll need is a large cardboard box, sellotape, spray paint, pencil and scissors.

I begun by drawing the number on a piece of cardboard, and cut it out.

Then choose which side you want the 3D edges to be, I wanted to fill the number with balloons so built the edges up on the front. I cut long rectangles out of the cardboard and used sellotape to attach around the edge. I stuck tape both sides to ensure it held.

I spray painted the whole thing…

Then found small metallic coloured balloons and wedged them all inside. It’s fair to say it’s pretty fragile, but perfect for a photo opportunity or decoration!
