Yes, we watch too much Sesame Street around here, but anyways. I've been wanting a cute letter H (for our last name) to decorate around the house for a long time now. Being the frugal minded people we are, though, I couldn't justify spending a lot of money on one. So I made one.
Here's what I did and it's super simple.
tricky can of spray adhesive to stick the paper to the letter. Once dry, I used a mix of white school glue and water to paint over the whole thing. (It's cheaper than modge podge, like I said we are frugal)
I saw where someone else had pinned a cute little paper flower on a letter and LOVED it. So I cut out three layers of "petals" to create my flower. I glued a thumbtack to the back of a fabric covered button I just happen to have on hand (lucky me) and viola!
Though, if I'm totally honest I don't know if I love it. I mean I like it, but do I LOVE it? Regardless, I'm sure the baby will find it and tear it up in no time. Seriously, he's already thrown the phone at the lamp leaving a black mark. He's cute, but he's a stinker.
