I recently made my first monogram craft project. I call it a Monogram Burlap Decoration. If you can paint, cut and glue, then you, too, can make this project. It is a simple DIY decoration that also happens to be beautiful. Simple and beautiful – that’s the kind of projects we love to share here at Happy Clippings.
I think this monogram decoration is a great display for spring or summer. It’s bright yellow color makes me think of a marvelous sunny day. The burlap gives it texture. The flower embellishment adds another pretty layer to the overall design.
Want to make this Monogram Burlap Decoration? Read on for the tutorial.
The material I used to make this Monogram Burlap Décor are a basswood 8×8 canvas, yellow paint, white paint, foam brush, W letter, burlap, glue and small flower.
The burlap is a garland wrap from Michaels found in the floral section.
The paint is Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Craft Paint. The color is Yellow Jacket. First, I painted the wood canvas yellow. I did two coats. I also painted the letter W white. (The photo above shows it white because I painted it already.)
I cut a square piece of burlap and attached it onto the wood. I used Mod Podge to attach it.
You may notice the burlap is not cut exactly square but I like it this way, The imperfection gives it charm.
I glued the W onto the burlap using a hot glue gun. I also glued on a tiny bouquet of yellow flowers onto the W monogram.
And that’s it. An easy personalized DIY project is complete. You can make one for yourself or make one for someone to give as a gift.
