You can make metal letters from sheets of copper for a dramatic set of house numbers or decorative home accessories. Copper sheets can be purchased from home improvement stores and can be cut into any form with a pair of wire cutters. The metal letters could be used in a back hall over a set of coat hooks that designate each member of the family. Or one large metal letter could be incorporated into a grouping of photographs that are hung over a sofa.
