I am a Total Copy Cat!


I found this blog awhile back that I absolutely love. Martha at So Lovely Creations is so creative. She always has great ideas and even has her own store on Etsy.com. I saw a post awhile back about these cute little wall letters she made. Since I had a baby shower for my sister in law coming up I decided I would attempt to make them myself.

The first thing I did was lay out the letters and wooden plaques I purchased at Hobby Lobby (my favorite place)........

Next I painted half the letter Pink and have Tan (those are the colors of her nursery).....

Then using Scrape booking paper and Mod Podge I covered the front of the wooden Plaques.....

I glued the letters on the front on the plaque and decorated them with rhinestones. Then I stapled tulle ribbon to the back of each plaque to hang them......

And here is the finished product.........

SO CUTE!!!!

Of coarse I will probably never get to make anything for my kids using tulle and rhinestones but its fun to make for gifts!

That is really cute. I had bought just plain white letters for the nursery and my aunt asked if she could do "something" with them. When I got them back I was so amazed. She did a wonderful job. The letters look better than I ever could have imagined and it was just using scrapbook paper and a few little trikets.

Very cute! I will have to give it a try sometime. You could make them more boyish if that is what you are worried about.
