Framed Name Tutorial

Some good friends of ours are expecting a new baby boy any day now. The mother asked if I could make some sort of name sign for baby Greyson’s nursery. Here’s what I came up with…


Can’t wait to hang this in his nursery! They are actually in the process of moving and I’ll be helping with his entire nursery remodel in the new house, so stay tuned for future blog posts about that! For now, here’s a quick tutorial on how this cute little sign came to be…

Mama loves monkeys, but didn’t want to go with the traditional browns and bananas, which I totally agreed with. I found this adorable aqua, orange and grey fabric that was the perfect alternative!

I bought a simple 10x20 black frame at our local Meijer and cut out a piece of fabric measuring approximately 12x22 (I always leave a little wiggle room!). I attached the fabric to the back insert using spray adhesive and pressed flat. TIP: I found spraying a narrow section on one side and aligning my fabric there first allowed me to get the straightest, smoothest finish. Once that set, I sprayed and adhered the rest.

For the letters, I used my Cricut to cut out aqua lettering with white shadowing. The letters were also attached using the spray adhesive.

And thanks to the skills of my mom, we also have a matching baby blanket to give to the expectant mother! Woohoo!!
