You can find all kinds of wooden letters at the craft store in all kinds of sizes. I got mine from Michael's and they were already white. I painted the sides with green and blue craft paint and used scrapbook paper to cover them. A tip on choosing scrapbook paper is if you buy a book of paper the colors are all coordinated for you.
I traced the letters on the back of the paper. Doing my best to line up the pattern the way I wanted it to look on the front. This paper has pattern on both sides so it's difficult for you to see that I've traced it. Cut it out and then just decoupage it on. I used modge podge.
Here is the finished project.
I had to cut out the "I" twice so the pattern lined up nicely.
Okay, here's my confession, the letters were really difficult to hang. I had lots of nail holes to fill in and paint over when I was done. I now realize that I should have measured from the ceiling down.
Another project I did in the nursery is change this lampshade. The theme for the nursery is woodland creatures so when I found this faux bois style lamp at Target I fell in love. I chose this linen lampshade to go with it (also from Target). But I was not crazy about the beads going around the bottom.
I clipped of the beads and trimmed it out in some cute ribbon using fabric glue.
Blue is perfect for a baby boys room and I like how the chocolate brown stitching coordinates with the dark brown lamp.
