DIY Nursery Letters

DIY Nursery Letters

Naming my daughter was one of the toughest things I have ever had to do (not really but it was very taxing). We asked family and friends and even strangers their opinions, searched online and read baby naming books. My husband and I even had 15 minute brainstorming sessions where we would each write down all the names we loved as quickly as possible and then convened to see if any of them matched. I mean come on, there are countries that have baby naming ceremonies… it’s a big deal! So why not commemorate all your hard work by displaying the coveted name in your little one’s room?

Your child’s name in decorative nursery wall letters is a charming DIY craft to personalize a baby’s room, however are costly at $20-$50 each at a baby boutique. I say, do it yourself for a fraction on the price.  The letters shown in this project, done by one of my greatest and dearest friends and fellow crafty mom, Jennifer Hostetler, cost less than $4.00 per letter. Add paint or decorative or scrapbook paper to match your theme for a few extra dollars. Jennifer embellished each letter with wire ribbon and a craft rhinestone to match a brown and pink themed nursery for one of our uncrafty besties (isn’t she sweet?).  The letters can be found at any craft store like Joann’s Fabric and Crafts for around $3.00 each. One roll of ribbon works well for three letters and costs approximately $2.50 per roll. The total cost for this projects was less than $30.00 for all six letters!
