Chinese character wall decor


I made these from some alphabet squares that my daughter was getting rid of.  ( See pictures below) You can make your own by cutting some pieces from a 2×4 and then covering them with some canvas.


  • If you have any similar blocks you can use them.  If not, just cut some pieces from a 2×4 and then take some lightweight canvas and wrap around the blocks like you’re wrapping a present.  Staple the ends across the back. I will make some soon for another project I have in mind and will do a detailed version at that time.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
