My nesting instincts have really kicked in lately! I want to make or buy about a million different things. I loved this project because it was affordable, simple and fun. Perfect for a busy, pregnant mom on a budget. If you have older kids, it might be a fun craft to do as a family for the same reasons noted above! I knew I wanted to do something on the kids' doors, because they end a hallway and it just looked so empty and white down there. However, I also didn't want it to be to big or extravagant because I hate when things look gaudy or cluttered. I love the clean and simple lines of these monograms.
Here's a quick photo tutorial if you'd like to make your own:
2. Cut your letter out. Make sure you cut on the inside of your traced line. I know this feels wrong, but you want your paper letter to be a little bit smaller than the wood letter.
3. Place your cut letter on top of your wood and trim any edges that overhang.
4. Apply Mod Podge to the back of your letter with a foam brush to glue it to your wood piece.
5. Once Mod Podge is dry, sand the edges of your letter until they are smooth. Because I liked the white of the wood and that matched my doors, I didn't sand as much as I might have usually. If you like a rougher, more worn look, just sand until it fits your preference.
6. Mod Podge over your entire letter to seal your project. I did two layers, both to make the project more durable and because I like the matted look. Let your letter dry and then hang them up.
Super easy right? Good luck with yours!
