Pretty Alphabet Chart

Hello!

So I have been searching and searching for cute alphabet letters to string up for my younger daughter but couldn't seem to find anything cute and pastel to match her bedroom.  In my searching I came across a lot of cute banners everywhere but they were very expensive.  So I decided to make some ABC's my self for her room with the banners in mind.
Easy peasy!


The card stock is from Home Sense that I found for $4.99 for a stack of 100.  This made it easy to just cut triangles out of the bottom so that I can achieve the pointed bottom for the banner shape and I just punched two holes at the top to string my gold ribbon through.


                   



The pictures for the corresponding letter sound are taken from different things such as greeting cards,  my personal sticker collection (wow I love this kid) and I had to draw some the pictures.  The markers I used are from a 100 piece Crayola set that I purchased from Target.


This project actually took about 5 hours spanned between two days actually because drawing perfect letters is hard!



Since completing this project I decided to do one as a gift for my niece as well.  I was a little more ambitious with her letters though.  I can't even tell you how much time I spent drawing these pictures because I did it between watching all of Homeland on Netflix and starting House of Cards.
To make this I tied rope around pushpins that I nailed into the wooded border of this cork board.  Then I just paper clipped the letters in order.

The card stock and giant gold push pins are from Home Sense.  I chose the binder clips because the cards could be removed without making a mark (they are from Walmart but you can find them anywhere).  Nylon rope is from my moms stash of sewing supplies.  I found these gold letters for over $7 at Michaels but recently just saw them at Dollarama.  The frame is a cork bulletin board that I just spray painted.



My inspiration for the pictures came from the artist Sullivan Anlyan whom I found on Anthropologie.com
