I'm trying to set up my LOs nursery as cheap as possible. I really wanted to have his name on the wall, but "Bentley" is a little pricey with wooden blocks. I was thinking I could buy the blocks and trace them on the wall, then paint the tracings and return the blocks back to the store. But is there any easier way?

Print the letters and use as stencils

So many things we need for the babies come in the big boxes that are made of the heavy duty cardboard - you could use that instead of the wooden blocks

What about print each letter on a piece of paper, like 8.5" x 11" and then cut it out and trace that? It would be like a stencil.

Why don't you just go online and print the letter you need and the style you like and trace from those.. Or just buy construction paper and trace the letters onto there and use that instead of the wooden blocks..

Be artistic and draw it in pencil lightly until you get the look you want then darken and paint it the way you want when done 😊 look on Pinterest for painting ideas

Print off the computer, or if they have stencils at a craft store or get foam letters instead? I think printing it might be easiest and cheapest.
