 I Purchased these mismatch letter Frames at Hobby Lobby in the 90% off section. They were $1.25 each!

                                       Step 1:  Remove back.

                                   Step 2: Remove letters.

                 Step 3: Trim it down to give room for fabric.

Step 4: Cover with fabric. 
                                      Step 5: Embellish.

                              Step 6: Glue back in frames.

These can be embellished with anything, whether it be feathers, flowers, or pictures. The frames can be painted. Then ribbon can be replaced with decorative ribbon, string or wire. Anything is possible.
