Something close to my heart ♥

Today I am going to share one of my favorite things, and one of my favorite crafts.

My husband and I got this made when we got married.  They are architectural photos that spell out our last name.  We love this, and get tons of compliments on it.

When we had our son, we wanted to do something similar for his room.  This time we made it.  We also decided to use actual letters we found, instead of architectural items. The first thing we did, was spend a day taking pictures of signs around us.  We tried to only use signs of places that we go to frequently.  We wanted the letters to have some meaning behind them.  We got them developed, and went through them picking out our favorites.

We also took pictures of the whole sign.  This way we could make a book of the places, to give to our son.  It gives him a memento, and helps him identify where the letters came from (when he gets older).

Here is our final project!!  Hope you love it as much as we do.

We are hoping this is something that can grow with our son.  The project was so fun to do, and looks great in his room.  It also was very inexpensive.  Our original (that we bought) cost a couple of hundred dollars.  This cost us about $25 to make.  We got the pictures developed by Snapfish during a deal, and  we bought the frame on sale from Aaron Brothers. It was actually the wrong color, but we spray painted it.

Enjoy making yours!!  If you make one, please share it on our Facebook page.  Also feel free to message us if you need any help.
