Girly Name Decoration

I had the stuff to make this for my little girls room for a while, but finally found time to make it.
I just hung it up in her new room and I am loving it.

Materials:
Wood Plaques- got at Hobby Lobby
Paper- Local Scrapbook store
Letters- Cut out of white card stock using the cricut
Ribbons-Michaels and Hobby Lobby
Embellisments- Local scrapbook store
Hot Glue
Mod Podge- Michaels
X-Acto Knife-Michaels
White Paint

I first painted the wood white. I then put a coat of Mod Podge on the wood and attached the paper. I used the X-acto knife to cut around it. I glued on the letters using a glue stick. Used Mod Podge over all of it. Let it dry and then attached my embellishments with a hot glue gun. Then I hot glued on ribbons to the back of the wood to hang it up with. I love how this turned out. It goes great in her room and this picture doesn't quite do it justice, but you get the idea. If you have any questions on how to make this just e-mail us or leave a comment.

  13. Can you tell me what size you made the letters? I have a 2 yr old and have been wanting to put her name up since she was born and this is the perfect idea. Thanks

  14. Well they are all different sizes because the plagues are different sizes. They range from 8 inches tall to about 6 inches tall. hope that helps! I would get your plagues first and then measure you tall and wide you want your letters so they will fit on the plagues or board you have.

  15. Just finished doing some letters like this for my daughter's room and they are sooooo cute! Have you had any problems with the ribbon coming unglued? My husband doesn't seem to think that hot glue will be strong enough to hold. Also, what did you use to hang them on the wall? Is it a nail? I was thinking some of those little plastic 3M hooks might work. Thanks for the inspiration!

Each of the four houses also has their very own table at the Great Hall. It can be said that the students of each house, which include Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin, do everything together: they study together, attend most classes together, eat together, and even sleep in the same section of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft.
