Altered Letters

I've had this project done for some time now...I got them hung on her wall, then I forgot to take pictures of it :)

I finally took the pics because I wanted to share them with y'all. And wouldn't you know it...I forgot to upload them and post them here! *grin*


Bella is so excited to share her pretty letters with you! I couldn't show you these without showing the little cutie they are for.

I found these letters at Michael's this spring/summer. They are made of MDF and were very easy to alter. I picked out the patterned paper, which is K&Company. I'm going to use this paper for her scrapbook as well. That's a whole other story...I haven't even started her scrapbook yet!!! Ack! I still need to scrap my wedding, honeymoon, and many other events!

These were very easy and fun to do. I traced each letter onto the patterned paper, cut it out and then mod podged it onto the letter. After I had each letter covered I painted the edges of each letter with pink paint so they look all pretty.

I went with the simple & pretty look for embellishing these letters. Each letter has one embellishment like rhinestones, primas, ribbon, etc.

As you can see I hung them up on the wall right above her crib. Just to make sure they are super safe I used double sided foam tape meant to hang things on walls.


Enjoy!
