I grabbed these cardboard letters from Joann's fabrics for a steal during their 4th of July sales event. (W, E and S spells Wes) During the same event, I nabbed a half yard of some quilting fabrics that match the wooded theme we have in the baby's nursery and some tacky glue and I had a cute and super easy craft that rang in for less than $15.
Naptime One: I cut each of the fabrics into different shapes and sizes. The idea was to make a fabric collage onto the letters. I cut the pieces big enough so that I could fray the ends a little bit for an added dramatic effect. I was just about to start gluing and my new roommate woke up and demanded that I attend to him.
Naptime Two: Since I had everything ready to go, I hit the ground running. I just started gluing away, trying to keep the pieces looking organic and not too much of one color in one area. I made it through the W and most of the E before mister man needed some attention.
Naptime Three: E took longer to finish than I thought... and Wes didn't nap as long as usual... still not finished.
This was a simple craft to complete and really adds a little personality to the nursery. I think anyone is capable of rocking this out for a nursery, kids room or even an adult space. Easy Peasy!
Have you ever tried something like this?
