Ok so I painted some letters to spell Emma to hang above the crib. Alternating pink and green. They came out nice, but I was thinking maybe I should embellish them in some way. Any ideas?

I can only think of polka dots.

Two Words: Modge Podge
or
Glitter

Polka Dots would be cute. 

How are you going to hang the letters? Maybe use a polka dot ribbon?

I made some for my sons room and after I painted them and let dry I put a clear coat of crackle paint over them and hung with ribbon. The crackle paint makes a really neat finish

You could free hand some of the things from the pattern of the bedding onto the letters.  If your bedding has a pattern that is

@Fallon:


I am so not artistic enough to freehand anything. I am stick figures only.

I am actually making some for a friend of mine that is pregnant.  I am ordering the bib and burp cloth in her nursery pattern so I can match paint colors.  I will embellish with ribbons and flowers I think.

I was wondering about this as well..
So If I had fabric from the bedding, I could "mod podge" it to the letters and it would dry hard?
 
Not to take over your question there NT

i did a kewl sponge job (@JJ get your mind out the gutter) on a medicine cabinet using glow in the dark neon paint.
So during the day it has this neon blue, green, yellow and pink look on top of a dark gray, but you turn the lights off and you get a subdued neon glow.

how about some of the "glow in the dark" stickers they come in different patterns & when you turn the lights off at night they will glow  a nice soft light for quite a while . I did this for all my grand kids & they loved it . When you get tired of it you just have to remove the stickers & you are right  back to the original  letters. I always favored the "glow in the dark STARS"  they also have the solar system & I bought this & did the entire solar system on the ceiling for my kids . it stayed up for years & also taught them where the planets located too....
