Are you looking for a fun way to easily add a pop of color to your classroom or your little one’s space? Spoonflower designer Esther Nariyoshi is back on the blog to share a budget-friendly DIY project (you just need a 2′ roll of Woven Wallpaper and magnetic sheet) that’s as easy as ABC! (Note: Our Woven Wallpaper was retired in 2022. You can recreate this project using our Peel and Stick Wallpaper just the same!)
Esther: I am a big fan of letter forms of all kinds. Last December, I did a whole alphabet set for Advent as a creative practice and fell in love with the result. Since both of my kids are learning about letters these days, I ended up transforming the digital series onto Spoonflower wallpaper to add the fun in the learning process. It’s a creative way to chat with your kids about the letters and the bright colors give little ones inspiration to handletter themselves!
I made a few size variations for the collection and the one shown in this tutorial is the 1″ version. Each letter measures slightly over 1 inch.
Magnetic Alphabet Supplies
- Scissors—an X-ACTO knife may also work, but I find that scissors tend to give a cleaner finish cutting through the magnetic sheets.
- Plastic squeegee – Spoonflower includes a nice plastic squeegee with your wallpaper order but a credit card will also work.
Cut the wallpaper to the size of the magnet sheets.
Peel back the paper backing on the magnetic sheet and the wallpaper.
Align and stick the top corner first, and work your way down the sheets. Use the plastic squeegee to avoid creating bubbles.
Cut along the space between the letters to create individual letter magnets.
