I love me a good monogram. And I also am a firm believer that most things look better with a monogram.
I wanted to make sure baby girl got her first monogram above her crib as well.
This is a super simple DIY, and one that can cost you as much or as little as you choose.
First, I took a little jaunt over to Hob Lob (short for Hobby Lobby) for some thin wood letters, and a few fake flower stems. Note: these add up QUICKLY, so only go on 50% week because goodness, no one has $1 million dollars for fake flowers.
These steps are pretty self-explanatory and relatively idiot proof (I did it!), but for any crafters out there that craft like I cook (sketchy) and scoff when cooks use instructions like ‘a dash’ of this or a ‘little bit’ of that as IF I KNOW WHAT THEY’RE TALKING about, I’ll lay it out there.
1. Used a sponge brush & some white latex paint that I had laying around (because I ALWAYS have white laying around).
2. While that’s drying, I tediously sat and cut off all the flower petals of each stem. I’d recommend doing this with The Bachelor or Ellen on in the background.
3. Then, I just started placing and hot gluing on each letter at random. Some perfectionist would require a specific plan, or pattern, but I’m a crafting rebel.
4. When you’re happy with the visual of each letter, grab a couple Command Strips and place up on the wall.
See, that wasn’t rocket science. But I love the texture and soft (neutral) girly touch that it adds to her room.
