Word Cloud Art

Word Cloud Art is so simple to make. All you need is a pretty picture frame and you have an excellent personalised gift!

WordArt.com is a website where you can create your own free personalised pictures.

I would like to start by saying this is not an advert, it’s just a website that I came across a while back when I was trying to make a present for my daughter’s school teacher. I have since used it several times to make presents for family and friends.

You start by going on the WordArt.com website, you can do this either on your computer or phone/tablet and press Create Now.

First thing to choose is what shape you would like to use. For this project I chose an apple as it was for a teacher. There are hundreds of images to choose from and they are divided into categories or you can search for a specific image in the search bar.

If you can’t find anything suitable or you are looking for something specific (like I did for the Elvis and Arian Grande Picture), you can opt to Add Image and upload your own.

Once you have selected your image, its time to pick a font. I would recommend choosing a font that is easy to read and not too elaborate as it will look neater.

Now its time to add words. Delete the Word/Art/Cloud and replace with your own.

I used words associated with teaching as well as the recipient’s name. Once you are happy with the words you can opt to increase the size so some will stand out more. I wanted Mrs Jones to be the main word.

To see your progress so far, press Visualise.

You can them play around and try different colours and backgrounds. You can also change the orientation of the writing.

Once you are happy with the final design, it’s time to save your picture.

Press Download and choose which format you would like your picture to be saved in.

I saved mine as a Jpeg.

Once saved all you need to do is print it and frame it!
