Step 3: For those letters that you want to be painted choose your paint and paint! My big letters I had to spray paint because they were ceramic for Hobby Lobby. The small letter were wooden. After painting the wooden letters I buffed up the edges with a block sander. This takes off some of paint to create the worn look. Then I simply wiped a light oak stain over the letters. Poof, shabby letters.
Step 4: Attach brackets and Command hangers to letters. I just used a glue gun to attach picture hanger hooks. There was no way I was going to tap in tiny little nails. I LOVE the command hangers and they worked great for the letters that were not wide enough to place a picture hanger.
Step 5: In order to hang this all up I first laid it out on the floor. This let me get a feel for how big of an area it would take along with letter placement. I measured out the area on the wall. It's about 6 ft. by 5 ft. Then I marked it off with painter's tape. Working row by row, I arranged and hung the letters. Here is a great Pintrest tip for hanging decor. Place a small amount of toothpaste on the back bracket. Then place it on the wall where you want it hung. When you pull the letter back away you will know just where to place the nail.
Happy ABC Letter Creating!
