Make Nail and String Letters

Jen from jk jk decided that the space above her kitchen cabinets was too bare, so she figured she would dress it up a little bit.  And dress it up she did!  Using an easy process and inexpensive materials, she created a wall art installation to greet all who enter.  I love how the elegant look of the large letters is given a playful touch with bright, colorful string.  Her letters were made by nailing directly into the wall; if you don't want to (or aren't allowed to) punch that many nail holes in your wall, you can use the same method on a piece of wood instead.  [archived link: how to make nail and string letters]
