A-B-C an Alphabet Nursery

An alphabet wall decor installation is a fun way to combine style and education.  Great, for a large wall, an alphabet display can be done in so many ways.

Various size frames, all in one color (think spray paint on frames you pick up from Goodwill or garage sales) with fabric or scrapbook paper backs.  Cut out letters from cardstock using various fonts.  Use MS word to do the letters, just create a white letter with black border and you can cut them out yourself!

This mix media alphabet display takes a little more time to collect but the mix of patterns, shapes and textures make a big impact.  Use craft paint to paint letters from various craft store, cover cardboard cut outs in foam and fabric, and paint some on square canvas for a mix and match look.

If you aren't crafty, check out this alphabet set from Migi.  You can hang the ABC quilt on the wall as decor.

 Into more of a modern look?  Frame ABC wall cards in matching frames for a streamlined look.
