D.I.Y. Wednesday: Decorative Monogram

You’ve waited patiently. You’ve raided your Vera Bradley leftovers. You’ve stocked up on tape, ribbon and inspiration, and the day has finally arrived. That’s right … it’s D.I.Y. Wednesday! This week, Erin shows us how to craft a piece of hanging wall decor sure to impress. Use this idea to perk up your personal space, wow at your next theme party or, since we’re approaching the holidays, to dress a festive tree.

D.I.Y.: Decorative Monogram

Decorative Monogram

D.I.Y.: Decorative MonogramWhat you’ll need:
Computer and printer, scissors or X-Acto knife, double-sided tape, a Vera Bradley File Folder or other paper item (we used an I heart eco Calendar), hole punch (optional) and ribbon

D.I.Y.: Decorative Monogram1. On your computer, type in the desired letter. Change the size, font, etc. to your specifications and print. (Tip: Print in gray to save ink!)

D.I.Y.: Decorative Monogram2.Use double-sided tape to attach the print out to your paper item. We used a Vera Bradley I heart eco Calendar in Plum Petals, but you can use whatever stationery items you have on hand. Use an X-Acto knife or scissors to cut out the letter.

D.I.Y.: Decorative Monogram3. Cut or use a hole punch to make two slits at the top of the letter for your ribbon. Thread the ribbon through the slits and tie a knot at each end to secure.

D.I.Y.: Decorative Monogram4. Decorate!

    Love your ideas.
    Have you thought about a Red, White & Blue theme. Not to bright but soft. A Patriotic Theme.
