I’ve been working on the nursery for awhile now and I am always trying to find ways to cut costs and feed my thirst for craft. I also love to have art that is original and unique. When I saw this adorable Alphabet Art Display on Tiny Decor Blog I was smitten.
The Alphabet cards are from Michael’s and are designed by Jen Ski for K&Company. I went to my local Michael’s to pick some up and they had EVERYTHING in the Actopus to Zelephant Collection except for the cards. It was ok, because I actually wanted the art to hang on either side of the large window in the nursery, so I didn’t need to make my piece as large as the one on tiny Decor. That was when I found stickers from the same Jen Ski collection that would be perfect for two smaller-scale wall hangings.
Above are the finished alphabet wall hangings. I couldn’t fit all the cards within the mattes, so I placed the “L” and the “R” at the bottom, which are the baby’s initials.
Here is how to make your own Alphabet Card Art like mine (All supplies are from Michael’s):
- Jen Ski “Actopus to Zelephant” stickers (or something similar)
- 2 11×14 “Brights” frames with 8×10 pre-cut matte included (though you could use any frame, or number of frames, that suit the style of your room).
- 2 12×12 sheets of Bazzil Basics “Crystal Blue” Cardstock with canvas finish. (again, use whatever matches your decor. I liked how the stickers popped on this paper and I also liked the texture).
- “Actopus to Zelephant” 35 piece chip Box
- scotch tape
- Double stick tape
- paper scissors
- clear ruler (I used my quilting ruler)
