These letters that have been in Natalie’s room have been redone so many times. Thank heavens for spray paint! They are just simple wood letters from Michael’s. They’ve been painted lime green and mounted on the front of her knickknack shelf, most recently painted bright magenta and embellished with buttons.
We hung them, with ribbon, above her closet. Yet, I wasn’t pleased with how they looked. It was really hard to get them to line up and look right. So, I took them down to redo them…again.
I apologize for the bad angle on the top picture. I have hung them, obviously, but I couldn’t get a good picture of them hung up.
1. Paint your letters and let them dry.
2. Next, paint your canvases. In our case, I painted them black because her room is bright pink and steel gray. The black canvases really pop against the gray wall.
3. Embellish your letters with buttons, glitter, stickers, etc. I had hot glued buttons on them to coordinate with the button monogram she has on the opposing wall.
4. Next, hot glue an 8 inch strip of ribbon at the top, on the back of your letters. This will be attached to the underside of the canvas.
5. Hot glue your letters to the canvas, lining them up with the bottom edge. I did mine landscape style and lined them up with the bottom edge so I knew they’d all be even.
6. Next, take the ribbon and hot glue it to the back of the canvas, so it looks like the letters are “hanging” on it. It doesn’t have to be perfect, even lengths because no one is going to see it.
7. Attach some command strips to the canvas and hang it!
