DIY Framed Monogram

Make this monogrammed wall hanging for party decor or a child's bedroom.
Here’s a quick and easy DIY project perfect for your next shower or birthday celebration.  I incorporated it into a Sweet 16 birthday I recently styled and the guest of honor liked it so much she wanted to keep it!
Here are the easy steps I followed to create the frame above:
  1. Use the infamous Ikea frame above, or any other one will do.  Remove the glass and cardboard backing, and spray paint the frame the color of your choosing.
  2. Using the glass insert as a template, trace and cut out the shape from a large piece of foam core (I used one that is already blue), using a box cutter.  Insert the foam core into the frame as you would the glass & cardboard backing.
  3. Choose your monogram letter from any craft store.  Spray paint it your color of choice, and attach with hot glue to the foam core board.

You can hang this above your dessert table, in the entry way, or any other prominent spot in the party space.  It is a great way to personalize the decor for the guest of honor!

    I'm doing something like this in my studio, only using black board paint and then putting the frame around it. :) Instant chic blackboard!

    Wow, I love this. While I like the monogram wall art I see in online stores, to me it always seemed like something you could easily do yourself. And this one is perfect, nicer than a lot of the ones I've seen sold!

    I'm seeing this frame in a smaller version at Hobby Lobby. It comes in Pink or Black. :)

    Great idea! When using this idea for a wedding, you can even create a lovely Victorian-inspired silhouette of the bride and groom!
