When we moved into our current home, we didn’t have furniture to fill a formal living room, but we did
Has an insane amount of toys. So it seemed logical that we would create a play space on the main level instead of running out to buy a bunch of furniture to fill a room that we would rarely use.
Creative Bedroom Wall Decor Ideas
This is how the room was staged when we toured the house. I have to wonder how often the previous owners used this place, as they also had two children:
I continue to be thrilled with this decision for many reasons. It’s wonderful to keep the toys tucked away instead of spread out all over the first floor, and the location of the playroom makes it easy for me to jump back in and check on the kids while I’m cooking dinner or running other errands.
This spot is also one of my favorite spots in our home in all its colorful glory. Recently, I created this gallery wall for the space. During that process, I moved this amazing Land of Nod clock to the gallery wall, which left an empty spot above our book nod:
I can’t stand having a blank spot on a wall for too long, so I decided to create some pom pom letters to go above the bookshelves inspired by the insanely talented ladies at J & J Design Group.
Decorating With Wooden Letters
I love the versatility of this project. You can make a single pompom letter and incorporate into a gallery wall, or you can spell out a favorite word or phrase. You can match the apple colors to your space, or choose a holiday-specific color theme and create some seasonal decor. So many possibilities!
Since my letters went over our bookshelf, I spelled out “read” and used pom poms in colors that complement our playroom:
So easy, right? I love how playful this looks, and how the letters pop against the gray walls. I am also working on a pompom letter H for my daughter’s room. Stay tuned to see the finished product! I show you how to make your own easy fabric covered wall letters that are perfect children’s decorations. Thanks to Aden + Anais for sending some coils my way to use for this project.
A while back I mentioned that I had a bit of a love affair with some of Aden + Anais’s prints. I still am. In fact, I think it turned into a big love affair. But I’m not huge on a nursery with a strict theme. That’s why making some fabric baby letters with their subtle yet charming prints seemed like a no-brainer. Want to know how to make your own fabric letters? I’ll show you how!
Best Ever Christmas Decorating Ideas
I started with some high quality kraft letters. I’ve rarely seen the odd letter hanging in the dollar section at Target, but good luck trying to spell anything using what’s available. So I used the smaller kraft letters from Land Of Nod which are about $4 a piece. They have holes in the back for hanging and basically, they are worth the bargain price considering where they came from. Now excuse me while I look at this bed for Kayla.
I took some beating to make the letters fluffy and plush and then found myself having a Sophie’s Choice moment trying to decide which of the super cute Up, Up & Away swaddles from Aden + Anais to cut. Call me a wimp because I couldn’t bring myself to use the one below with elephants and star balloons as it was my original childhood inspiration and I just love it.
I cut pieces of the bat, making sure to leave a lot of excess around the letters. Remember this – if you’re working with letters with cutouts or empty centers, make sure you pull the bat a bit through those slots or holes before cutting around the edges. Finally, you want to glue the batting around the letters so that it covers the entire front surface and sides of the letter, leaving only the back exposed.
Once you’ve cut the bat to size, you’ll want to hot glue it to the kraft letter. To do this without burning your little fingers, trust me when I say that you need to make sure you have something to press the bat against the freshly applied glue. I simply used the handle of my scissors to do this. If you want something very disposable you can use chopsticks, a plastic spoon, whatever you have. At this point you are halfway done with your DIY
