Our good friends, Eric and Christen, recently had a beautiful baby boy, Alex.
While Christen was pregnant, she came upon this photo and fell in love.
However, she was definitely NOT in love with the price tags of the cute ready made letters she was finding. She asked me if I thought I could help her DIY it and I said, let me do it for you as our gift to welcome little Alex into the world! I feel like she was so generous to let me do it because while it was a ton of work it was super fun to get crazy creative.
She sent me all the photos she loved, and some specific styles she wanted to include, but otherwise she let me go crazy and this is what we came up with!
That little "P" is wearing a pirate hat and he is my favorite!
I haven't been over there to take pictures since the letter were hung, but Christen sent me these to appease my intense curiosity about how they looked!
Now I know why people charge and arm and a leg for a complete set like this. It was a big job! But totally worth it for our friends!
