When Cinderella was born, I really wanted to have her name displayed on her wall.
Have you ever priced decorated letters before? The prices are ridiculous!
So, I made my own.
I bought the letters at Devilmart for just over $1.00 each. After buying all my supplies, I spent less than $10.00 for the entire name. Of course, it helps my girls have fairly short names.
1. Paint the fronts and sides of each letter white. The back doesn't show, so unless you're really particular, who cares?
2. Stencil your selected design wherever you want to on the letter. I chose flowers and grass and only stenciled the bottom point of each letter.
This is one of Cinderella's letters. I really like the beveled edges.
This is one of Sleeping Beauty's letters. It has flat edges, but I could fit more of the stencil on it.
3. Measure your ribbon. Make sure you measure enough of it to tie a bow at the top. You can always trim the tails later.
4. Attach the ribbon on the back sides of the top point(s) of each letter with a staple gun.
5. Tie your bows, and hang.
Cinderella's name hangs from hooks on her wall.
Sleeping Beauty's name hangs from hooks on a little shelf. Yes, we have a bright orange wall in our nursery.
Voila! Cheap, easy names charming enough to decorate any child's room!
