monograms personalize a space
Monograms make wonderful gifts and college dorms more personal. The template for monogram is easy to create in a word document. I like to email my images to my local office supply store for them to handle the printing. It saves my toner and my time attempting to get it just right. I usually email multiple images and pick them up at once. The options are endless. I shared a fun spring project using an image HERE.
Next steps include cutting around the border of the image and decide how many objects you can personalize. I trace it directly to the surface. It doesn’t have to be perfect because it will be filled in with paint or anything else you can create. I traced my initial onto a wood print. The print was on the way to the donation site when I realized it was just a prime and paint job from a new life. Upcycling those inexpensive, trendy art pieces is easy and most have finished edges and hardware on the back. So I made our last name initial and grabbed some black paint and got to work. It took maybe 4 minutes and I did it while my coffee was brewing. Multi-tasking starts early!
From thins angle the monogram looks a little wavy or shaky, but from a slight distance it pops against my newly painted dining room wall.
