Sometimes, especially in the midst of dramatic room makeovers, I love a quick, simple little craft project. Today I am sharing this Easy Metallic Monogram Art. It doesn’t get easier than this, folks!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A frame (I found a couple of cute ones in the discount bin at Michael’s)
- White cardstock
- A stencil or a computer & printer
- Metallic paint pen or metallic sharpie (whatever color you choose – I went with gold)
Here’s what I did:
First, I simply typed my letter in Microsoft Word (or the generic version I have on my computer) and chose the size and font I wanted. Then, I edited it so that it was just an outline of the letter.
I printed it on cardstock, then used the paper that came inside my frame as a template to trace and cut it out, making sure my letter was centered.
I cut out the part I traced (in my case, it was a circle, but it will be whatever shape your frame is) and then I traced my letter with my gold paint marker (I used Elmer’s, which I found at Walmart) and then colored it in.
Insert it into your cute frame and you’re done!
