Wall letters are a timeless classic in nursery and kid’s décor. We like them because you are only limited by your own creativity – or what you can’t find on the Internet. According to Oxford Dictionaries, there are at least one quarter of a million distinct words in the English language and we’re guessing that doesn’t include some legitimate kid-friendly wall words such as Bibbidi, Bobbidi, and Boo.
So, unleash your creativity and use wall letters to personalize your baby’s nursery with his/her name or monogram, to memorialize your favorite quote, to decorate with the alphabet, or to highlight inspirational words.
Family owned Alphabet Boutique specializes in creating custom, economically-priced, wooden hanging wall letters to help turn your creative wall word ideas into reality. Their wall letters are ½” thick, giving you nice depth for the wall, and you can get them in heights ranging from 6 to 12 inches.
Alphabet Boutique offers you over thirty paint colors for your wooden wall letters and covers the gamut of popular baby shades like pink, blue, and green as well as modern orange, chocolate brown, and sage. In addition to color and size, you can specify font and hanging options.
Choose from cute ribbons for hanging in satin, organza, gingham, or grosgrain fabrics in almost as many ribbon colors as paint. For a less ornate look that might work better in many boys’ rooms, you can choose simple brass hooks for your wall letter hangings.
For the more daring, order unpainted wall letters. It isn’t too hard to create decorative stripes that perfectly match the décor in your kid’s room. All you need are your paint colors and a little painter’s tape. Here’s how:
1) Start with a white primer.
2) Paint your wall letters in the color of your choice using an acrylic or latex based paint.
3) When they are completely dry (wait a couple days to be safe), use painter’s tape to create stripes across the wall letters taking care to wrap the painter’s tape around the entirety of the letter.
4) Paint around the painter’s tape and wait to dry.
5) Remove the painter’s tape.
Voila – beautiful, striped wall letters for your child’s room.
