I never did the letters for DS when he was itty bitty. When we moved and changed his room over to a little boy room, I ordered these plaques because I also wanted something different.
Of course, we've yet to hang them, but there they are. She painted them to match his bedding and really worked with me as far as ideas and design. She attached rope to the back for hanging (she will use whatever materials you want-I've seen ribbon for the girl letters). I bought some wooden star pegs that I'm going to paint blue and hang the plaques from them. I ordered the plaqes from a seller on ebay. I can't find her there right now, but her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. There are also a lot of other plaque type options that I just saw now when searching ebay. HTH!
