ABC Alphabet Wall

My son Jake has just started learning his letters and I thought that an ABC wall in his playroom (full tour here) would be a perfect addition. To make the wall more playful, I really wanted the alphabet wall to have a variety of fonts, sizes and colors. The wall has been a huge hit so far with all of our toddler friends. But a wall like this doesn't just have to reside in a playroom. It would also look great as nursery decor or in a kids room. You can also change the look and feel to fit any empty wall space in the house. Letter art is loved by adults too!

Alphabet wall for playroom, nursery or kids room by Thrive 360 Living

Here is where I found some of my letters:

B - Painted from Michael's
H - Cardboard wrapped in yarn
I - Michael's
N - Michael's letter in empty frame
O - Amazon Toy Steering Wheel
Q - Chalkboard from Shabby Decor
W - LAX to YVR
X - Two rulers
Y - Hobby Lobby
Edie's Lab
Z - Mr. Woody

    1. I appreciate the compliment. I had lots of creative ideas for other letters, but when it came down to it I realized that it would probably be better to get it up before my son is in high school ;-).
