I used a painter's canvas left over from another project, and a pack of wooden letters I picked up at the thrift store for 50 cents to make a simple piece of art for the wall.
I painted the canvas with some blue paint left over from when I painted the toddler bed.
Next, I painted my letters. An easy way to paint small stuff like that is to throw it in a Ziploc with a squirt of paint.
Shake it up, and spill it out to dry.
When it was all dry, I hot glued the letters onto the board. I also added a boarder of white polka dots using a pen cap dipped in paint.
It is pretty simple, but I like it. My hubby informs me that my "Z" is backwards....well lovely. See what pregnancy does to one's brain?! I mean, I've always been a bad speller, but I figured I could handle my ABC's pretty decently! I can read and write, I promise...I even have a driver's license and everything. =)
Total cost for that was about $2.50. The other quick decoration I came up with was this simple felt banner for the toddler bed.
I cut out triangles of pink felt.
I used stencils and fabric paint to put letters on them.
I added some white dots, and hot glued it to a strip of ribbon.
Again, very simple, but adds a bit color and fun to the room.
At least I managed to get the letters right on the banner! =)
