I went back and forth about what to hang over Eli’s crib. I knew I wanted something with his name on it, but didn’t want to do anything permanent. We are renting our home, so repainting everything before moving out did not sound like a good option to me! I decided to use some of the fabric leftover from the bedding my sister made to cover some wooden letters. It was quick, easy…and I think it turned out very cute!
First, place the wooden letter on the fabric and trace around the letter. Then, cut the fabric. Next, cover the wooden letter with mod-podge. I used a sponge brush for this part. Then, place the fabric on top of the glue covered letter. Make any slight adjustments by pulling the fabric into place, then cover the whole letter and fabric with another layer of mod-podge. Let dry and then adhere a picture hanging strip to the back of the letter. Place the finished letters on the wall and step back to admire your hard work!
PS- Picture hanging strips are my new favorite decorating tool. They are easy to use, and leave no mess on your walls when you are finished with them.by
