How to Make DIY Wall Letters: What I’m Makin’ Monday
I’ve been meaning to post about this for a long time, but I never got around to it because I forgot to import my photos.
Before my daughter was born I decorated wooden wall letters to hang in her nursery, over her diaper changer. I looked at buying some but thought a personal touch would not only save me some money, but be a fun way to get exactly what I was looking for. It didn’t take much time, and I had nothing but it when I was waiting for her to arrive!

I’m not much of a painter myself so I used scrapbook paper to get a clean look with a pretty finish that makes it look like it was painted on!
I ordered my daughter’s letters off Ebay. I got 10″ letters for a couple dollars each from a place like this.
Sand around the edges to smooth out the paper next to the wood.

What did you make?
I have a letter wall in my bedroom. I LOVE the look! I don’t have any with ribbons though-might have to steal that idea!
Personalized wall letters serve multiple purposes. They’re not only decorative but come in handy when trying to help your child spell their name and learn the letters of the alphabet.
These are lovely. Really like the ribbons. I was thinking of getting some lettering up in my daughters nursery sometime before she arrives in Feb.
I wasn’t as creative, I just painted my son’s letters blue 🙂 You should take a close up picture of just the J hanging up so we can see it!
Those are really cute. I had some small letters that I striped and put on a shelf in his nursery.
I was thinking about making this for my daughter’s room. I love the way they look and I thought if I used the right colors, it could grow to fit her room as she got older.
Those are super cute! I want to make some for my girls new room.
Love it! I am a new follower!
Just love meeting crafty people.
Inspiring quest there. What happened after? Good
