Wooden Name Garland

Make your own DIY wooden name garland.  This is a project which I have been meaning to do for ages! I am so glad I have finally got around to making a name garland as it looks so pretty hanging up in Daisy's bedroom. It was really simple to make too, the hardest part was picking the colours!

You will need:


  • Wooden letters ( I used these- UK link)
  • Paint in your chosen colours.  I used Dulux matt tester pots in pretty pink and gentle lavender.
  • Twine (the letters I ordered came with enough)
  • Paint pens (UK link/ US link)

How to make a wooden name garland


I started by painting the letters and alternated the colours.  The tester pots I used are perfect as they have little bushes inside them.  Once the paint had dried I added spots and lines.  Paint pens would have been perfect for doing this but I didn't have any so I used some white paint. I used a cotton bud to help me paint the dots.

Once the letters had dried I threaded the twine through them.  The twine I had was quite thin so I doubled it up, this made it easier to hang too!
