DIY Wooden Monogram Letters

My sister-in-law recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Charlotte. When the time came for her to come home from the hospital, family and friends showered her with baby clothes, diapers and hooded towels. But, being the crafter that I am, I wanted to give her a customized gift to welcome home their new bundle of joy. One accessory that looks great in a baby nursery or kids room is Wooden Monogram Letters. Earlier this summer, my aunt transformed my cousin’s room to include French Boudoir inspired fabrics and colors. I made her an embellished and bold letter “M” to add to the ambiance and to accessorize her dresser. What better way to personalize a room than to add monogram letters to a wall or shelf? This craft is extremely affordable and easy to make.

Instructions:

  1. Start by tracing the letter you are going to use onto your scrapbook paper. Then cut out the letter using your craft knife. Make sure to cut out the scrapbook letter slightly smaller than the actual size so you can show off the wooden layer.
  2. Paint your wooden letter. Be sure to use two or three coats.
  3. Once the paint has dried, spread a layer of mod podge onto your wooden letter. Place the scrapbook paper letter on top of your wooden letter. Align the paper letter carefully and press down firmly. Use another coat of mod podge over the scrapbook paper to give the letter a shiny, finished look.
  4. After the modge podge has dried, use adhesive rhinestones or jewels to decorate your monogram. Glue on fabric flowers to add a girly, chic touch.
  5. Voila! You are finished. Give your custom wooden letter as a gift or hang it up on your wall.
