What's My Name Again?

Just in case Summer ever forgets her name, I made this cute little doo-dad to help remind her. :)
Okay, it's driving me crazy that her wall looks so peachy-tan in this picture. It's actually yellow (similar to the "M" color)... just to set the record straight. :)

It was so easy, but I sure dragged my feet in getting it done. The intention was to have it done before the little cutie was born, but that just didn't happen. Oh well. :) But here's how I did it: I got some wood letters (at Hobby Lobby), traced them onto scrapbooking paper with prints that I liked (and that matched her room decor), painted the wood white, cut the letters out (and I actually cut a little inside the lines so that some white would still show around the edges of the paper), used Mod Podge to apply the paper, and then finished up with a coat of Mod Podge (I used glossy) over the top. Then I just attached some sheer ribbon to the back of the letters using hot glue (it can get a tad bit tricky trying to figure out where to attach the ribbon so that the letters will hang straight, so I had to play around with that a little), and finally I hung them on this peg board that I got and had painted white. Ta-da!

I really like how it turned out, but now I need something else to go with it on the wall. Hmmm... maybe some butterflies. What do you think?

Now I just need to find some butterflies! :)

Your crib bedding is adorable as well.
