I decided to paint letters for my cousins' new babies nurseries...  but I decided I didn't want to buy the ready-made letters to modify.  I bought small packs of stretched canvases (4'x6') and then hot-glued ribbon on the back for them to hang.

I painted the letters with acrylics to match the bedding/decor of the nursery, based on photos and registries.

For my cousin Grant and Ashleigh's baby Carter:










And for my cousin Amy and Bryan's baby Abbi:










I'm fairly pleased with how they turned out, and both sets are hanging in their respective nursery.  Thanks for looking.
