Simple Monogram DIY



I've always loved going to my married friend's houses and seeing the first letter of their last name randomly throughout their home. Even when I was single and thought marriage was silly, I loved that idea. Andrew and I have been married for almost a year and still haven't gotten an H for our house. Much less a few to be displayed around, all cute and lovey. So, today I found his old topo map and an old atlas, oddly enough on top of our dryer. I hung up his topo and thought the atlas would be good for gift wrapping, etc. Then I decided to thumb through and found Colorado and immediately thought, okay here is our first H.

You will need:
a marker or colored pencil
a ruler
a map (or other choice of paper)
scissors
a way to hang your letter
cardboard or core board for backing (optional)

gather supplies

use your ruler to draw and measure your template

thankful we have an H because it was pretty simple

cut out letter

hang on a clip board 


and enjoy!
Taaadaaa! Seriously, how easy is that? If you have a letter that isn't so geometric freehand it! Sometimes it's a little scary to do something freehanded but it will be fun and beautiful! I hope you enjoyed this! If you make your own please leave a link in the comments below, I'd love to see them!

Don't forget so sign up for Pay It Forward, I still have 3 spots left!

That looks totally easy, even for me. And it's such a great idea, I guess I need to try this, too. I'm going to share it with you, for sure. :)

XO.
