DIY Wall Initials – This Gathered Nest

cover

I made one of these fun wall initials for Rosie’s nook, and when the girls saw them, they insisted they have one too! It was so easy to make and turned out really cute, so I thought I would share a quick little tutorial on how to make them!

All the supplies are from Hobby Lobby (don’t forget your 40% off coupon!) Here is what you need!

First thing you will do is paint the whole letter white! It takes two coats of the paint I used to get a good opaque white! Then you use a ruler to make your lines, I chose to do 3 inch thick stripes based on the total size of the letter. Easy Peasy!

Then you just paint the alternating stripes black, again you will need two coats. I also used my ruler to make sure the lines stayed straight!

While that is drying, I cut the flowers from the bunch and hot glued them together at the tip, you kind of have to play with arrangement to get the look you want. Then I hot-glued them on the letter once it was totally dry!

The nice thing about the letters from Hobby Lobby is that they come with the holes drilled and ready to be hung!

Here’s the final product!
