"You Are The Best Thing" - Bedroom Decor DIY
If things would have gone according to plan, you would be seeing another breakfast recipe on here this morning; BUT, considering that I'm currently travelling and didn't prep my recipe blog post beforehand, we're doing a bit of improvisation! I've had a few requests for a DIY on the new letters/words that we have hanging in our bedroom, so I thought I'd get on here and give you a run-down on how I made those letters (it's simpler than you think!), and then I'll share a brand new breakfast recipe tomorrow :) Since we've been such transitional people in the past few years, always moving apartments, I'm always looking for fun, non-invasive ways to personalize our living space, with my latest endeavour being these cardboard letters that have gotten hung above our headboard (<--- click to find our headboard DIY from earlier this year). We already had three strings hanging the length of our wall that we were using to string photos across, so I just decided to implement those in a new multi-functional way.
All you're going to need for this is some scissors, some kraft paper, a pencil, and whatever you're wanting to use to hang the letters to the wall. I had a stack of kraft paper laying around the apartment, so I just started by hand drawing the letters to my phrase on the paper (one, sometimes two letters to a sheet), and then cut them all out. This was the longest part of the whole process, but I did it while watching Friends so it was pretty enjoyable ;) Once my letters were all cut out, I just hung them on the pre-existing strings in our bedroom using small silver bulldog clips! I then went ahead and attached a few personal photos to the stings to give it a bit more personalization :)
