When I found grey chevron bedding for Samuel's nursery and remembered I had grey chevron fabric, I knew a project was looming!
Leah has her name displayed in her room and I just left the letters plain white to match her furniture, but for Samuel's room I decided to dress them up a bit to go with the rest of the decor.
Covering the letters in fabric was surprisingly easy!
I didn't take photos as I was covering, but this really is a quick and easy craft.
You will need:
-wooden letters with a smooth surface
-a sponge brush
You don't need much fabric for this, depending of course on how large your letters are and how many you're looking to cover. I started with half of a yard and had plenty left over.
Then I covered the right side of the letters in mod podge, using the sponge brush. I placed the fabric cut out on each letter and moved it to completely cover the white. Then I let it dry. Once it was dry, I added another layer of mod lodge to seal it.
The final step is to add the ribbon! This step is totally optional, but the letters I chose didn't have a hole for hanging and I like the look of the ribbon as well.
I used mod podge to attach the ribbon too. I applied it to the top, stuck on the ribbon, and sealed it once it was dry. It worked like a charm and allows each letter to lay flat against the wall.
I love this and think it really adds to the nursery!
