Alphabet Wall

In the big boy room I designed we wanted the alphabet somewhere in it. We also wanted it to be as inexpensive as possible. So I'll show you how you can create one of your very own!

Supplies Needed:
26 frames (I prefer them all to match, it achieves a more cohesive look)
Scrapbook paper Around 50 sheets
Die cut machine

We got the frames at IKEA for $1.99 each. We also found some similar ones at the dollar store, unfortunately they didn't have enough so we opted to get the ones from IKEA. But it's worth a shot you might get lucky and find some.

Then we used a silhouette machine to cut out all the letters and the frames. We used the same paper for the frame and the letter in each frame. There's so many options you could do to customize it just for your room. You could have all the frames match, you might be able to do the same thing with fabric. Let me know if you try it! It's a great inexpensive way to add a focal point to a room!
