The very first craft I had in mind for our little girl’s nursery were these “Penny” craft letters. I wanted to reference her nickname and also do a little play on materials. The choice of copper pennies influenced the colors of this space from start to finish. From the fading coppers and golds of the honeycomb wall to the more peach than pink color we chose for the walls. The craft itself is very simple and is not that expensive. The craft letters and paint will run you about $10 and you will spend around $5 in pennies for a 5 letter name. Though it would be a bit more expensive, I think this would be really fun with nickels for a “Nick” too!
- Paper Mache Craft Letters (I used the 12″ letters)
- Hot Glue or E-6000 Adhesive
- Paint Brush
- Coin of Choice
- Nails or Removable Strips for Hanging
Step 5. Attach to the wall using nails (they are quite heavy if coins are added) or simply use removable command strips or putty for craft letters without the added weight of metal coins.
