This custom and cost effective DIY letter wall decor piece makes a fabulous statement in my little girl’s nursery. It was easy to make and took less than an afternoon to put together. The end result looked like something you would buy at a home decor store for much more. The best part is this piece can transition with my daughter as she gets older. I talk about baby nursery decor must-haves and the importance of transitional pieces in a previous post. Babies grow so quickly so you don’t want to invest your money or time into pieces that your child will not enjoy when he or she gets older. This DIY letter wall decor piece is versatile because it can be made for a baby, child or adult. It can also be used for a birthday party, baby shower or wedding decor. The possibilities are endless.

Making your DIY letter Wall Decor Piece
- Frame or shadow box ( I purchased this one at Dollaroma)
- Wooden letter ( From Michaels )
- Scrapbook paper of your choice ( from Michaels )
- Gather the materials.
- Paint your wooden letter your desired color. Set aside and allow to dry.
- Take your picture frame and remove the picture insert. Grab your scrapbook paper in your desired pattern and use the picture insert to trace onto the scrapbook paper.
- Cut out the traced scrapbook paper. The scrapbook paper should now fit perfectly into the picture frame. Use the cardboard backing from the picture frame, and glue your paper onto it. If your picture frame does not have a cardboard backing you can use poster board. This step makes your patterned paper more sturdy so you can attach the painted wooden letter onto it.
- Grab your painted wooden letter that you put aside and glue it onto the patterned paper.
- Insert the glued letter into the picture frame.
- It is now complete and you have finished your DIY letter wall decor piece.
- Use the hardware that is attached to your picture frame to hang your decor wall art.
I chose to style this piece on the wall in my toddler’s room. I went with pink stripes to go with the grey and pink theme in the room.
