What materials did you use? I bought wood letters and hand painted the striped one in black and white. The polk a dot ones is paper that I decoupaged and the other was fabric I decoupaged on the letters. I hot glued the ribbon on back of the letter and tied on knobs that I painted and nailed to the wall,

What are you most proud of? The way the letters turn out after I finished the decoupage. I had never done that before.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The paper was easier to decoupage than the fabric. Cutting it out to place on the letters was a little difficult. With the paper you could press it with your hand against it and get an indentation of where to cut, but couldn't with the fabric.

How absolutely perfect jfriel! These are so unique - very creative! I imagine they add inspiration to your space. I've never done decoupage. Maybe its time to try.

Thanks. Yes it makes me smile when I go in there. I'm putting up decorate rods to hang my quilt for display next. The ones you can add the rings with clips.

Fabulous idea and just beautiful for your room! The letters would be fantastic in a child's room or on their door, in a school classroom, or a hundred other places. Love it!

My sewing room is my happy place!! I get lost in there and block everything out.

This is the coolest idea and I agree would be so cute in a child's bedroom... Now I must go see what decoupage is?!?! Thanks so much for showing this.

It's like a paste/glue that you apply to a surface and when it dries it is glued and has a nice finish. It's in a jar or bottle. It's fun!!
