 diy hanging wall letters

Inspired by Rachel (and baby Emma) on Friends, the idea of hanging wall letters  in your little lovebug’s bedroom was born. It’s such an fun and creative way to personalize your baby’s nursery for next to nothing. Pick up a few inexpensive materials, follow a few instructions and you’ll have new wall decor in a jiff. Don’t forget to send us any added ideas for this diy project.

What you’ll need:

size appropriate craft letters

magazines/wrapping paper/scrapbook papers/fabric

ribbon

decoupage (i.e. Modge Podge)

craft glue

paint

art knife

HHM Directions:

  1. Choose your designs and color. Cut images from magazines, paper or fabrics or prepare paint supplies.
  2. Layout your wood or papier-mache letters.
  3. Spread a layer of decoupage over one letter.
  4. Place images appropriately. Don’t forget to tuck paper or fabric all the way to the back for full coverage.
  5. Add 1-2 more layers of decoupage. Allow each layer to try completely.
  6. Cut two 18-inch lengths of ribbon for each letter. Glue both pieces to the back of each letter, placing them on opposite sides of the letter. Allow time for the glue to dry.
  7. Tie each pair of ribbons into a decorative bow then hang each letter on the nursery room wall to spell your baby’s name. Be sure to secure the letters to the wall so that the ribbons do not bear the weight of the letters as they may fall off otherwise.
