I really want to do my own letters once we start on the nursery.
Just wondering if you ladies can give me some crafty ideas on doing them?
Also if you have any pics of your wooden letters can you post them?
What tools or supplies did you need?
I know several ladies here are doing them on their own too! Hopefully they'll share their ideas!!
I am doing mine too, I bought basic wood letters from Hobby Lobby and acrylic paint. I have lots of paint brushes and sponge brushes too that I will use. I have actually yet to even paint them though! I need to do it either late at night once my son is asleep or when Daddy can keep him occupied, otherwise he will be into everything!! LOL!
Special thanks to AlexAiden Mommy for my AWESOME siggy!
Well u will need some wooden letters ( if ur very crafty u can make those urself but i think there is too much cutting/sanding involved ) , acrylics paints, brushes , glue gun , a stapler , bows ( if ur planning to hang them using bows ) hm... oh and something for the finishing such as wax / varnish for wood ( make sure that u get one that u can apply over acrylic paints).
Here r my letters. I changed the first "A" with the last one coz the flower on the K and the first A r on the bow , so i found it bit strange lol
Hey! I'm just popping in from the Feb09PR and thought I'd chime in. We did wooden letters for my son's room and I got the letters themselves from Michael's I believe--then painted them with acrylic paint and took a white paint-pen and dashed along the outsides so it almost looks like stitching around the letters. I thought that it really made them pop. We then painted a piece of board that my husband beveled out and sanded--also with acrylic paint, and then just hot-glued some little sports appliques on there that I found at Wal-Mart (though I would recommend SUPERGLUE if you went that route...one of the little baseballs has already come off but DH wouldn't listen to me when I said we needed Superglue ). It turned out really cute and very manly if I do say so myself. If I had had a little girl I would have embellished a lot more, but I had to tone it down on account of having a boy lol. Anyway here are a few pics of the project in progress and a final shot.
We ordered our letters online, because you could choose the font, size and thickness. Then I just painted them with an acrylic paint and hot glued some ribbon on the back. We are happy with them and they were really easy to paint.
