Faux Wooden Letters Monogram Sign for Nursery Decor

To begin, here are the large wall letters in my daughter’s nursery. I knew the monogram would be perfect addition to the wall decor, but decided to try styling it on the dresser first.

I especially like the slightly distressed look of the letters that adds dimension and character. Our exact letters are no longer available, but these ones look very similar and come in lots of colors.

I also tried styling the faux wood letters on top of the bookshelf.

Finally, I decided to style the monogram sign over the bed. It would also be so cute over a crib!

The monogram letters are perfect nursery wall decor. Since they are made of paper, they are safe for over a bed or crib. The similar option I shared is made of foam, which is also lightweight.

While updating this post for 2024, I found so many cute options for custom nursery wall decor from Etsy small businesses. You can feature your child’s name with individual fabric or wood letters, or a round wooden sign with calligraphy, just to name a few.

On the product listing page, you will be able to choose your alphabet letters and/or request custom orders. (Remember that these are usually made-to-order items, so you should allow a little extra time for shipping.)

Hanging Nursery Wall Letters

How to Hang Paper or Foam Wall Letters

Our faux wood letters are lightweight paper mache, so I mounted them with picture hanging Command strips. It was easy to apply the strips to the backs of the letters and press them against the wall.

I began by attaching the center letter, and then pressed the outer letters onto the wall gently, stepping back to check the positioning. I was able to move them a few times until everything looked right, and then pressed them firmly against the wall.

As I mentioned above, our exact wall letters are no longer available, but these ones look very similar and are made of foam. Scroll down for more options!

Nursery Wall Letters Safety

Nursery letters, name signs, and monograms are a fun way to add personalized decor to a nursery. However, some products may not be the best for use in a kids room.

When decorating my son’s room several years ago, I purchased a galvanized metal initial for his room (the kind you find in craft stores), thinking it would be a nice wall accent. However, I ultimately decided not to hang the letter because I felt concerned about the sharp, uneven edges.

Thankfully, there are many wonderful options to choose from that are made of fabric, foam, paper, and lightweight wood. No matter what product you choose, be sure to follow the installation instructions and safely secure the letters to the wall! Depending on the material, this could include Command strips, a sturdy hook, or a keyhole mount.

Here are a few more photos of the letter wall decor in my daughter’s nursery! See even more in this post.

In addition to the monogram, I decorated the wall of the nursery with these tree wall decals. Each individual leaf had to be placed by hand–quite a project–but the forest wall turned out so cute!

I also used picture ledges for baby nursery wall decor. Mine are from IKEA, but these ones from Amazon are similar. It is fun to swap out the kids books and art seasonally.

Above the toy organizer, I hung a wall shelf for artwork, a faux plant, and a wool pom garland.

Finally, above the crib I hung a minimalist lion print to go with the Narnia theme.

In Conclusion

Designing the nursery has been a healing experience for me. After a miscarriage, and then a challenging pregnancy, I am so thankful to retreat to this peaceful space.

Yes, there have been sleepless nights, long days, and tears all around. There have been times when I felt like I couldn’t handle two kids, and times when I had to reach out for help. But in the quiet moments, when I am holding my girl close in this sweet space, I can only be thankful.

What is your favorite nursery wall decor? I would love to hear in the comments below!

  1. They are lovely! They look very realistic, like they’re actually made of wood. And I love the fact that even if they fell from the wall, they wouldn’t hurt the kid. I’m very cautious with things that go on top of beds or a nursery and I’ve seen people put heavy objects and/or with sharp edges. It really scares me!
    I love the room, very cute colors!
