I just finished these letters for Graham's sports themed room and I like them! The client wanted them quickly so I didn't get a chance to attach the things they will hang by. She is going to attach them when she gets them in the mail.Under each letter I put what I would have strung them by.
Brown leather string - like a baseball glove
Plain grosgrain ribbon - orange (to tie in more orange and make the basketball A not stand out)
Plain grosgrain ribbon - dark red (to match the bedding)
Black or white shoelace - like basketball shoes
Plain grosgrain ribbon - black (just looped around, not a bow)
White plastic lanyard string - like football laces
A whistle (with the whistle on top) - like a referee!
