I love those cute little monogram EVERYTHING that we have been seeing all over the crafty blogs lately and I decided to make my own. You know when you see cute ones all over and then you go to find the links and spend an hour looking for just one - and can't find one? That happened to me - but you know they are out there!
First: I gathered together all my supplies. (and the best part was I had all of them handy so I didn't have to change out of my pj's to run to the store for anything! saaaawwwweeeet!)
You will need:
A Staple gun
Second: I took my frame out back and sprayed it blue - no picture because you all know how to spray paint!
Third: I traced my letter backwards, on the back of my paper so it wouldn't leave any trace lines, then I cut it out.
Fourth: I Mod Podged the paper onto my wooden letter.
Fifth: I let the letter completely dry and then I sanded the edges that were a little bit funky off.
Sixth: I looped the ribbon through the letter J and around the frame and tied a bow.
Seventh: I created a loop with the same ribbon and stapled it into place so my frame would hang. I also stapled the ribbon that was tied into place so it wouldn't shift around either. Easy Peasy!
Lastly, I hung it up on my door!
It was so, so, so easy!
And I love it!!
(I wish my little silver "knocker" wasn't in the way though -
o-well, it is still super cute!)
