Alphabet Nursery Wall Decor

A cute idea going around is to decorate a wall in your nursery with an alphabet – like pictured below (pics randomly found on google). A friend of mine was invited to a baby shower and the smart party planner asked everyone invited to bring a specific letter.. in my friend’s case, she was asked to bring a ‘U’. I think she is going to take a horseshoe to give the expecting parents for the letter ‘U’. Genius!!

You can find un-decorated letters at your local craft store – or search around for letters in your environment (like the horseshoe!)
