I made these for my daughter Brianna awhile back.  I was on a really tight budget and lived in a small town without a lot of wooden letter options.  I ended up printing out the letter really big off the computer (made them into outlines first to save ink) and then traced them onto poster board.  I painted both sides with a coat of white acrylic craft paint, and when it was good and dry (24+hours) I cut them out and went crazy decorating them.  I painted them with more craft paint, but you could easily cover them with scrapbooking papers, fabric, anything!   I then sprayed them with 2 coats 97 cent clear spray paint (I stuck them to a large piece of cardboard 1st) and they are really shiny!  I am about to do new ones for her room, she changed the theme and I'll probably do them the same way.  I know some of you like the thickness/dimension of the wooden letters, but the posterboard ones are so thin they almost look like they're painted directly on the wall.  They're also so light, I hung them up with rolled up pieces of masking tape on the back.  You could still do the ribbon with these, but I would also do the tape to make them hang right.  Sorry this is so long, but I just wanted people who couldn't find these wooden letters (or can't afford them) to know about an alternative option!  You also have many more font choices doing it this way!  Also, I just realized you could cut them out on a Cricut (or similar cutting tool) if you have one!  I didn't when I made the last set...hmmm....I wonder if I have a font she'd like!?
