Ok, two things brought me to this DIY. First is my new obsession of "initials" in decorating. I'm currently collecting letters to decorate with a mass quantity. They are fun and can be so cute. The hunt for new letters in different fonts is so fun.
Second, I was flipping through a Restoration Hardware "child & baby" catalog and saw letters for sale just like these! They are $29 and I knew I could have fun making my own for more than half that price.
Items Needed For This Project:
- Unfinished wood beads: Size is up to you. I used 5/8" bead that I purchased at Michaels. They were $2.99 pkg. (qty 34) I saw online that you can get them much cheaper in larger quantities at Oriental Trading Co. If you buy at a local store make sure and use a coupon.
- Wire: Use a strong enough gage that it will hold its shape with the beads yet bendable. Your local hardware store is your best bet for choices.
- Misc: craft paint, paint brush, needle nose pliers
You could make other shapes. Try a heart or a star! I would love to see your work. Please share with me on any of my social media sites. Find links at the top of this page.
