DIY WALL LETTERS INSPIRED BY ANTHROPOLOGIE AND MADE FOR A FRACTION OF THE COST.
When our oldest daughter was born my cousin gifted us some sweet wall letters from Anthropologie. Years later when our youngest was born I looked up to see if I could find the same letters, at the time we couldn't afford to purchase them so I made her a little wooden name sign.
When we moved and the girls started sharing a room I looked again for the letters so they would match but they were no longer available.
Now that we are updating the girls' room I wanted to update the name sign as well. So after looking high and low for similar letters again I decided we would just DIY some!
Supplies Needed for DIY Wall Letters
STEP 1: Apply Mod Podge to Back of DIY Wall Letter
Apply a generous coat of mod podge to the front of the wooden letter. Make sure the mod podge does not drip down the sides.
STEP 2: Flip DIY Wall Letter over onto the back of the craft paper
Make sure the craft paper is facing the correct direction if there is a pattern you don't want it to end up upside down.
Press down slightly against the wooden letter to ensure the paper has stuck.
Set aside to dry for 10-15 minutes.
STEP 3: Trim off Craft paper from DIY Wall Letter
After the mod podge had dried trim off craft paper with a utility knife.
Your letters should now look like the above photo!
STEP 4: Paint Sides of DIY Wall Letters
Paint the sides of each letter in different colours. Try using colours out of the paper you selected and use them on alternate letters that do not have that paper.
For example, I used craft paper with a mustard colour and then painted a letter with orange and blue paper mustard on the sides.
Let dry and you are done!
For now, these letters are sitting on the girls' side table. Once their room is complete we will most likely be hanging them on the wall using command strips!
