I wanted to show you all these because I am not extremely crafty
but managed to pull this off! GO ME! These were pretty easy to make, I just bought scrapbook paper, cut it out in the shape of the letter, and glued it on with Modge Podge. Then when dry I sprayed with a glossy finishing spray to give them a more finished look. I think someone on here may have posted some ideas on how to do this a while back, I'm not sure, but I know I got ideas online somewhere. I had planned to hang them above our changing table but just realized the name turns out to be a little longer than the changing table is and I think it looks like too much. I think I will put a mirror above the changing table now and have to figure out where else I can hang the letters, I may have to do them diagonal or up and down or something, we shall see! I love looking at everyone's nurseries and projects so keep posting things!

Those are really cute great job! You could put them above the crib or if you have chair your going to use up that in a corner and have the letters come down at and angle. That's what I have done and seen.

So cute! I wish I was creative and could something like that! But I have a feeling mine would not turn out good!

I wanted to put them over the crib but we have a mural painted there and I think it would be too busy and take away from the mural....I do have a glider in the corner next to the crib, I will have to play around with it today.

Those turned out great and sound pretty simple! I think I'm going to have to try making some, but I didn't do letters for Kellan and I can't leave him out...looks like I'll be making 2 sets Cute!

Oh it looks great! What a smart idea using scrapbook paper instead of paint. That makes it sound so much easier.

Great job - it looks fantastic!

Just wanted to add, to be cautious about hanging a mirror above the change table... I know it depends how big it is and everything, but larger pictures/mirror with frames - if they fall off and come down on change table, might be nasty bump to baby. My friend's son had to go to hospital after a large picture frame fell off the wall and hit him in the head. He was fine but a lot of blood and stitches needed.
