My project this week

So I found this super fun giant letter "R" at my local Joann superstore and boy was I excited! I had no idea what I was going to do with this thing... but knew I had to have it!

Since then I've seen a TON of really cool projects using these same letters, so I'm going to have to go back and get some more. Pinterest is the devil I tell you! Ha ha! Anyway.  For this particular project I decided to make a "things that start with R" art piece for the kiddo's room.  I looked online for some inspiration and found a printables site that had all the letters of the alphabet covered with drawings of things that started with that letter. Using their letter R as a guide, and also adding a few ideas of my own, as well as a cute rabbit drawing from a little purse that I have...
I came up with this:

We've got...
  • rain clouds
  • rain drops
  • redwoods
  • radishes
  • rabbit
  • rose
  • raspberries
  • and a robin
Lots of other things begin with "R" but I was kinda trying to keep to the natural world theme and not have it be super busy.
I'm pretty pleased with it! Next step is to paint it. I'll be getting that done this week and doing the big reveal next Thursday!
Have any of you purchased these letters? I'd love to hear about your projects! I saw an idea on Pinterest where you cut the front off and fill it with dirt and plant it with succulents! Cool right? I'm thinking of doing one of those for the door to our place...
