DIY: handmade gift for a little guy’s room

This little gift was made for a friend’s little guy last summer. He turned one, and my friend asked not to bring any gifts for the party. But you cant go to a first birthday party without a gift, right? Perfect occasion for a handmade gift, I thought.

This project that I had found via Pinterest, had been on my board for a while and I thought it might be a good idea to try. Specially because little Ibraheem was making the transition from his mommy daddy’s room to his own:) 

All I needed was a found branch, templates for the letters that I printed out in a bold font, some scrapbooking paper, and twine. After I tied the twine to the letters and the branch, I put some glue on my fingers and went over it just to make sure it wont untie itself. Initially I tried hanging using wire. That didn’t turn out well at all so I ended up using twine instead. Much better, right?

I quite loved how it turned out. Would be a beautiful wall hanging above the crib or a door hanger for that matter!
