So I am trying to get a few new things together for the "Nursery/Shared Room" for the kiddos!
And when I saw this a few weeks ago I thought holy that's cute!
These are from dollarstorecrafts.com!
I love Dollar Store Crafts.... cause well I love the dollar store!
So after I thought holy that's cute I thought I wonder what I could do with this.... and then this came out...
I am in love with them!
Here is how I did them...
(unfortunately I was so excited while making them that I forgot to take pictures...)
First I cut down a cardboard box... shocking for me I know...
I cut it to the size that I wanted (I cut four of them) and then I glued two of the sheets together with just white glue and I weighted them down with plates and vases...
Next I painted them both white.
Then I lightly sketched out each name and glued my crayons down over the sketched letters.
Personally I preferred to have them with the outside paper taken off and I cut them much smaller of course since I had more letters to make.
Here is a close up of the letters....
For Max's I did all the letters in green, yellow, orange and blue... the colors I am using for his side of the room.
and for Delaney I used reds, purples and pinks. (the colors of one Strawberry Shortcake)
Then I used excess cardboard to make the frames, I did my best to make them a perfect mitered edge but clearly I didn't succeed, and at 9:30 after a long day with a very active girl I really didn't mind that it wasn't perfect. Then I just covered the cardboard with scrapbooking paper in coordinating colors... reddish for Delaney and orangeish for Max.
Here they are again... in full and a bit closer up!
I think they will look great against the green walls... Yup I am painting the walls green and I can't wait!
Make anything cute for your kids lately?
I'd love to hear about it!
