When I was a kid, I had an alphabet train choo-chooing its way around my room. The engine was the letter A and the caboose was the letter Z, with cute train cars in between covering the remainder of the alphabet. I truly believe that the alphabet train aided in my early cognitive development, so I wanted something similar for Lily's room.
I started decorating her room with a hodgepodge of items, but it has settled into a fairies, flowers and woodland animals theme. I looked high and low, and just couldn't find exactly what I wanted when it came to the alphabet (in my price range). There are very cute wall decals and posters containing the entire alphabet, but I wanted a full page dedicated to each letter, like my train had done. And I wanted something whimsical and unique.
Ultimately, I typed "fairy flower alphabet" into Google images in hopes that I would come across a shop or store that had what I wanted. Instead, I found images of watercolor paintings by Cicely Mary Barker and I was inspired to make my own alphabet pages!
I printed the pictures, bought some pretty scrapbook papers, bought a flower shaped paper punch for the white accent flowers, and drew and cut out my own letters. Each page is laminated. I'm super happy with how they came out. I used tacking putty to hang them because I didn't want to poke holes in them with thumbtacks; but they keep falling off the wall, so I need to figure something else out.
