Budget Finds: Wooden Letters

I'm obsessed with typography and the aesthetic value of letters. There's something very cool about taking something that's not usually seen for it's own beauty and making it the centerpiece--and since letters are mostly used for forming words, I love trying to take away the written context and making each letter stand out and have it's own aesthetic value.

Anthropologie has these awesome wooden letters on sale right now for $3.95 a piece. I'm just brimming with ideas of how to use them... please feel free to share yours!
