Stefanie: I’m thrilled to share this tutorial as the ‘secret ingredient’ to my baby’s nursery. Since no one but my husband and I know our baby’s name yet, this has been a fun project to keep quiet! I absolutely wanted to decorate my daughter’s nursery with some fun wall art, but I tend to be very picky on art, and for a baby girl nursery, I wanted everything to feel personalized and special. Enter this easy custom name garland tutorial, where you can hang the letters in any way you choose, or opt to display them more like blocks on a shelf for more versatility. This is a great way to use Spoonflower’s Fill-a-Yard® feature, so have fun mixing up some of your favorite prints from the Spoonflower community!
