There are so many great ways to decorate your walls with the alphabet.
I loved the idea of the alphabet as a graphic on a wall and also thought it would as a learning tool for my son. Our living room could sure use an update … these are painting stretchers covered with some vintage wallpaper.
1. Print and cut your alphabet I used Swiss as my typeface and printed the letters on my printer. The letters measured about 4.75″ tall. I had two stretcher frames hung side by side each measuring 40″x24″ (total: 80″x24″).The letters were cut out on a sturdy but lightweight fabric. Use a non-fraying fabric for a clean look. My letters are more on the handmade look. I used a demin material as the background fabric.
2. Baste, appliqué and mount fabric on your stretcher Arrange and baste all your letters on your fabric and sew using the zig-zag stitch on your sewing machine. Watch for the letters shifting as you sewing and reposition. Stretch the fabric over your stretcher bars and staple in place starting in the center and work your way to the edge of frame.
