I love the wooden letter look in nurseries and kids room. I think it looks just ohhh sooooo cute and savvy. So, since I didn't want to drop 30 bucks at Babies R Us for some hinky dinky letters ... I made my own. They were really simple and easy, plus I loved how I could adjust them to look perfect in my little Lucy's room.
All you need is...
Wood Letters of what ever you are spelling (kids name/families last name/favorite sport/theme/ verbs like Dream, Dance, Wish)
What ever items you wish to have on the letters (I did star fishes)
Double Sided Tape
I just simply painted the letters and then hot glued the star fish on, to help them match Lucy's tropical room theme. I then placed double sided tape on the letters and BAM stuck it on the wall....real rocket science. :)
If you like them simple that will work great for you. But if you are wanting a little more pizazz with your letters; then instead of using double sided tape find a really cute ribbon. Tie a bow and make sure you have left enough space on each end to either staple or glue the ribbon to the back of the letter, then hang them with a nail or anything you might think will work.
Okay...now get this.....there is another option. Sorry, hope I am not over whelming you out there, but if you are a real challenge seeker, you can even bump it up another notch! Find a cute wooden frame or frame box and place some matching scrap booking paper as a back ground lining. Then glue your letter in the middle, take some ribbon and attach it to the top...this is probably my favorite look. If you can't find a wooden frame box you can either glue the letter on a circle plaque or paint the letters right on the plaque, but painting the letters directly on may take a real steady hand and you will probably need a stencil.
