I'm adding the finishing touches to Baby Boy #2's nursery:
Embroidery Hoop Wall Art by Holly at In the Fun Lane
I thought these reclaimed wood wall letters from Sweet Pickins would go well with the theme I used in the nursery.
I also really liked these DIY Zinc Wall letters by Burlap and Blue inspired after these from Anthropology. However, I'm not so sure they would have worked with the nautical / sailboat theme I already had going on.
These textured DIY fabric wall letters from Kids Activities Blog would have been cute in the right color scheme.
I love these Map Wall Letters I found at Cottage Modern inspired by these from Urban Outfitters. It fit so well with the rest of the room that I just kept coming back to this idea.
I replicated this easy DIY wall letter idea for $18.50 vs the $72 it would have cost to purchase the letters from Urban Outfitters. I purchased the cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby at 30% off, and these two maps from Paper Source for $4 each (although one probably would have worked):
I already had Stitch Witchery, fabric glue, Elmer's glue, and extra canvas all on hand from my DIY Sailboat Mobile. But these can all be purchased pretty cheaply from Walmart or Hobby Lobby.
I first traced the letters onto the maps, cut them out, and than used a little Elmer's glue and water to attach the map cut outs:
I then cut the canvas into long strips 2x the width of the cardboard letters, folded them in half, and used Stitch Witchery and ironed the two sides together. I used fabric glue to attach the strips of fabric to the letters:
All said, it took about an hour to put together - during the boys nap time!
