Wooden Letter Art

Arts and Crafts

First Initial Wooden Decoration

Since obtaining a lovely bedside table, I’ve been super tempted to fill it with sugar, spice and all things nice to fit in with my pink, white and grey colour scheme. I was desperate to fill it, but not make it cluttered.

I saw loads of photos on Pintrest, with letters decorating rooms, and with the open faced cubes in my bedside table I thought that would be totes adorbs.

And before you say it, yes, I know I have an ‘N’ in my Autumn window setup, but its not narcissistic if its art!

I ordered a wooden ‘N’ online (for Nicole, obvs!) and using the arts and crafts supplies I have overflowing in my arts storage crates set to work creating something to bring a little bit of me to the table.


I used Metallic markers (although paint would have been better) in the purple/pink colour to colour the entire letter.

I then set it with a thin layer of PVA glue, to give it a slightly shinier effect.

I then spritzed it with a metallic gold glitter spray paint, and let that set.

Finally, I took a bow from the oddly large collection I have just laying around, and hot glue gunned that to the corner, because it looked cute AF.

Once all of the components had 100% dried, I placed it carefully in the last remaining cube in the bedside table and voila…


Hope you enjoyed this extremely girly DIY. Even I’m a tad glittered out now!

P.S if you haven’t read Lindsey Kelk’s ‘The Single Girl’s To Do List’ I would definitely recommend you do! I’ve read it cover to cover more times than I can count, and enjoy it every single time!
