So I went to Michaels to pick up a “K” for Kaylee, but I bought the smaller size because I thought that would be cute. They come prepainted in white (but you could easily paint them another color if you’d like) and they are made of MDF so they are pretty strong, but still soft enough to take a staple easily. This could also be done above a crib, spelling out the entire child’s name, or just the initials too, whatever floats your boat.
(I apologize in advance for the bad lighting in the pictures… I worked on this project at 4:30 in the morning while I was waiting for Kaylee to wake up.)
Next I gathered the rest of my supplies:
attached the ribbon to the letter,
and hung the ribbon from a thumtack placed near the bow
K is an odd shape so it needed some anchoring to keep it flush with the wall.
Ta da! Super easy and pretty cheap for a nice decorative touch.
