Baby Wall Letters


For my niece Megan's room my sister-in-law picked this adorable Twinkle Little Star Baby Bedding by Kimberly Grant.  This set is great it really goes with their home, they have brown and tan throughout the rest of the home so it really ties in well.  The bedding is also great because it is gender neutral.  When they have another baby later on they can reuse it.




It is a combo of tan, chocolate brown, with lime green.  As accents she picked a dark watermelon pink.  My sister in law bought most of the pieces in the set, but still wanted to customize the room and make it feel not like it all came out of a box. 
For Megan's wall art we wanted to do something personalized and custom yet fun and simple.  We decided to put her name on the wall but in a creative fun way.  Megan's Aunt Jenny came up with this creative way of putting her name on the wall. 




I didn't take pictures of the process (bad blogger I know) but I can walk you through it.  We picked up these white picture frames from Ross.  The letters came from Michaels Craft Store, you can also get the from JoAnns or Hobby Lobby.  We had to go to 5 Michaels stores to get all the letters, make sure you have all the letters before you start as some might be hard to find.
Inside of the frame we picked up two fitted baby crib sheet from Ross for $2.99.  Originally we were going to buy some sheets from her bedding set so everything would match.  The baby bedding was very expensive so we started looking for another option.  I found this brown and white pock a dot sheets at Ross.   They are from Tiddliwinks, which did a knock off of the Little Star bedding a year ago.  We picked this so the colors would match but yet it wouldn't be too busy in the background.  I also picked up sheets with lime green stars which matched perfectly but it was too busy and took away from the letters.  We want the letters to shine and the background to just blend in nicely.

We added the watermelon pink ribbon to the top of the frame to tie that color throughout the room.  We only used the pink as an accent in the room.  We then painted the letters white with left over paint from her dresser.  The letters were glued on to the glass of the frame, the frames weren't deep enough to put the letters inside.  To add another detail to the letters we then added a symbol to go with each letter.  












These were super easy to make, and took about an hour to do.  Anyone can do this!  These letters add a great personalized touch to her nursery and takes it from out of the box nursery and turns it into a really cute and custom nursery.
