This framed letter project was one of the VERY first things I pinned on Pinterest! I never forgot about it and couldn’t wait to do it once we decided on Trent’s name.
It was super cheap and easy and you can make it unique to your color theme and child.
Frame (this one from IKEA was only $1.99!)
Colored scrapbook paper (for the background)
Different size buttons (choose colors to fit your theme)
Other unique buttons/pieces to add in (we chose dinosaurs!)
Hot glue gun
Print out the letter onto a sheet of paper and insert into the frame. This will be your guide on where to place the buttons. I attempted to create a T with the buttons without doing this first and it was taking forever!
First, place the buttons in the spots that work best to fill in all of the letter, making sure to find spots for your unique buttons. Super small buttons came in handy to fill in the very small remaining spots. Next, pick up each button one at a time, place some hot glue on the back and press it back down in the exact spot you had it.
Remove the white sheet of paper with the letter on it and replace it with the colored scrapbook paper.
You’re left with your letter of choice!
