As promised, here are the steps we took to make the letters in my baby's room. I spotted some letters similar to this in a local boutique for $31 each(like these) and my mom suggested I try to make some on my own.
First, I purchased some cheap frames (mine were from Walmart - they were originally black) for only $3 each
Then, I purchased some scrap book paper for the background. There are so many patterns and colors available you can choose whatever matches your decor! I got mine for less than $1 a sheet at a local craft store.
I also purchased some wooden letters. Lots of craft stores have these. I got mine at Hobby Lobby for $1.50 each (they were on sale 1/2 price!).
I also bought white and navy blue spray paint for $0.88 a can.
Total cost for 5 finished "boutique" nursery letters: $30 Total cost for 5 letters - had I purchased them (which I couldn't even fathom!): $155 I did all of my letters for about the price of one!
1.My husband spray painted the frames (since they were originally black he had to spray them white and then blue to make sure the color was right).
2. I cut the scrapbook paper to fit the frames
3. I hot glued the paper down to the back of the frame.
4. I hot glued the letters down on top of the paper - the letters were already white, but you can paint them any color you choose.
5. Viola! Boutique Style letters for a fraction of the cost!
