wall decoration lettersSometimes it boggles my mind, of how many things you can make with simple materials. So this week, I started with these 3 simple alphabet wall decoration ideas for home . And, I’ll be honest I had quite a few restrictions in mind, like the colors, the materials, the time taken and more. So, I had estimated a single standardised design, that I would replicate for all of them. Sad, I know. In my defence I was really strapped for time. But, as it turns out, I’m not great at standardised designs. And, in the same timespan,  we managed to make 3 simple but amazing alphabet decoration styles. Here’s what we made!

aztec alphabet decoration

Aztec  Inspired Alphabets.

Materials:  Base Alphabet, Straw or Coloured String, Adhesive, Scissors, Black marker, Ruler, Pencil. Black Paint, Paint Brush

Time: 60-90minutes

Steps:

1. Draw a simple aztec  design on the alphabet and mark out the spaces where you would like the string.
2. Paint  the back and the sides of the alphabet black.
3. With the  marker, colour in your pencilled design. Focus on highlighting portions of the alphabet with bold lines.
4. Without pasting it, wrap the string around the marked portions and measure it. Cut the string to the required length.
5. Then apply the adhesive in the marked areas.
6. Start  sticking  the  string from the back to the front moving in a clockwork direction. While making sure the strings are as close as possible.

What I especially like about these alphabet decorations is the variety of ways in which you can place them. You can place the alphabets directly on the shelf or hang it on the wall with sting or hook. You can also attach a magnet for fridge. There are so many options!
