Wall Letters

I thought I would share pictures of the letters I hung up in my girls’ rooms.
I know these are nothing new, just wanted to share my take on them!
For Sam’s room I found little wood appliqué things at Michaels. The ladybug was already painted, but I had to paint the dragon fly myself.  Which was fine because it allowed me to paint them to match her bedding.
I painted the edge of the letters in black, then glued on the appliqué piece.  I also used black craft paint to make little trails from the bugs. I love how they turned out!
I loved them so much I actually found full size bedding in the same pattern as her crib bedding so when she moved to her big-girl bed I could keep the letters!
(I think I need to just go back to taking pictures in auto mode for now! I am taking a  photography class in April, so hopefully my pics will improve after that!)

I also found these wood dragon flies at Michaels. I painted them to match her bedding, and attached them to the wall with super strong double sided tape. (And I mean strong, when we moved last year and I took these off her wall in the old house… part of the wall came off too! Oops!)
For Sadie’s room I went with a different font for the letters. I didn’t want them to be too matchy-matchy.
Her bedding is flowers and hummingbirds… and hummingbird stuff is surprisingly hard to find! So I used flower stickers that match her bedding on her letters.  I painted the outside of them turquoise since they were going on a pink wall (half her wall is pink, the other half is turquoise).
I love how they both turned out!
