Tip: You can buy unfinished wooden letters or cardboard letters at almost every craft store.
DIY nursery wall letters
Large hanging 3D wall letters are one of the most popular trends in nursery decor. But the colors are usually limited and the prices can be high — especially when your baby has a long name. Making your own wall letters can be a simple and fun project for moms, dads or as a group activity at a baby shower.
Paint wooden letters with wall paint that matches or coordinates with the color of your nursery walls.
Paint cardboard letters with craft or acrylic paints to complement your nursery theme and decor.
To Mod Podge your wooden or cardboard letters with scrapbook paper or colored napkins, mix craft paint with water to create liquid glue then, with a paintbrush, apply the glue to the letter. Lay pieces of the paper or napkin on the letter and carefully apply another coat of glue.
DIY nursery projects with scrapbook paper
To decorate the room — or to temporarily fill empty picture frames that are waiting for baby's arrival — place colored, patterned or textured scrapbook paper inside of your nursery's picture frames. Scrapbook paper can also be used when making a ceiling mobile or can be cut into tags to hang on clothes hangers to divide your baby's clothing into sections and sizes.
