Today I want to show you how you can decorate wood letters to add to any child’s bedroom wall. About a year ago, I made these to hang in our daughter’s nursery. I couldn’t find any big enough letters here in Sicily, so I ordered them online….they are about 6 inches each. They were so easy to make and added such a cute touch to the room. All you need is some acrylic paint in the color of your choice and some embellishments that you would like to add to the letters.
You begin by lightly sanding the letters for any rough splintery edges. Then add 2-3 coats of paint to one side of the letter. Once dry, flip it over and paint the other side.
After painting them all, I glued stickers, mini silk flowers, and other embellishments I had in my craft stash…the possibilities are endless! I also took off the jute ties that came with the letters and added ribbon instead to hang the up. That’s it!
So go ahead and try it…I think you will find these fun to do and you can even offer them as personalized gifts!
