I was given a simple, black, plastic plastic letter "E" from my cousin a while ago, and stashed it away. I recently found it again and decided it needed a make over. I spray-painted it in a tiffany blue. Then I cut out little sparrows from some left over, thick card stock and spray-painted them metallic gold. After it all dried, I used a gluegun to attach the birdies, and voila! A perfect gift for my cousin's daughter "Eden". Now I collect letters everywhere. I'd love input and ideas on future letter projects from you all! Thx!

I think I've seen letters at Target before in their low dollar bins.  I'm going to look more carefully the next time I go there.  Good job.   Smiley
