A few weeks after Imogen was born we picked up an I to add to the wall but the poor thing has sat in my sewing room waiting ever since. Last night I finally got around to making it and hung it this morning.
These letters are super easy to make. I use paper mache letters from Spotlight which are about $3 each. Then all you need is a piece of scrapbooking paper and some coordinating paint. First I painted all the sides of the letter and let it dry overnight. I then traced around the letter onto a piece of scrapbooking paper, cut out the paper letter and paste onto the front of the paper mache letter. From there if you need to you can trim any edges that you need to and hang.
Now, since I added that to one side of the wall I needed to add something to the other side. See I have a thing about balance and symmetry. I had no idea what I was going to make but the minute I saw this cross stitch on pinterest I decided it was just the thing.
I first saw this on the lovely Brooke's pinterest page and promptly saved it. The next day I had some spare time I popped on over to Spotlight and grabbed the supplies. I doubled the size if the pattern so it would take up more space on the wall. If you would like to make one too you can find the pattern here.
I am so happy with how these both turned out and how our cluster wall is expanding. I already have ideas for a few more things to add to expand the wall even further. Stay tuned for those!
