Sweet Girl's Room: Name Art

Ever since my daughter was born I wanted her name on the wall but never got around to it.  This was my chance since I was starting from a clean slate.  I decided over her bed would be the perfect spot.

I bought some white letters from Hobby Lobby (I think I'm in that place every week).  I was just going to hang them as is but I thought I would add some more colors to tie in the rest of the room.  I had a pack of scrapbook paper to get rid of so I decided to add the paper to the front of the letters.

I laid my paper out and arranged the patterns to go in the order I wanted them to.  Of course little one had to help out.


I traced the letters on the back side of the paper so I wouldn't have any pencil marks on the front of my letters.  I used scissors to cut out the letters.  You should have seen the mess she made with the leftover paper.  Since we were working in a spare bedroom, I just pulled the door shut so I didn't have to see it.


Using spray adhesive I attached the paper on to the front of the letters.


Here they are on the wall. 


Love the pops of color against the green wall.  Do you likey?

Almost done with this room.  I can see the end.
