DIY Baby Name Plaque

Today I thought I would share a craft with you...I have two sweet friends having babies very soon, so I just finished up one of these precious name plaques and I will be creating the other one for you today.
I have to admit, I am not the most crafty, but I sure love trying.  I love receiving handmade gifts so I try to give things that I can make myself that are thoughtful.
My dear friend Lori is having a baby and this is for her little one.
You can hang these on the wall or on the child's door.  I have made quite a few of these as gifts.
Here are the supplies you will need.  I found everything at Michael's craft store.
  • A plaque. Michael's sells different shapes and sizes and they are reasonable
  • Wood letters for the child's name
  • paint...I am using a pale blue and beige,with pale beige for polka dots
  • a glue gun
  • coordinating ribbon, this is what you will use to hang the plaque, you can even glue buttons, or  small toys on the plaque if you would like
first paint your plaque the color you would like
 then paint your letters
you will glue your letters on. I actually just use paint to glue them on
I used a Q-tip to paint the polka dots

then you will hot glue the ribbon on the back, I found this sweet ribbon that says made with love
As you can see it is not a difficult project, but it is adorable.  Here are some others I have created.

 For my one of my Nephew's, I found a toy skateboard and painted it, then glued it on.

Aren't they adorbs. These would make great birthday gifts, shower gifts, even as a house warming gift for a child for a new room.  Thanks for reading along today. I hope you lovelies have a wonderful weekend!  I am linking up withTatortots and Jello for her weekend wrap up party!
