This DIY floral acrylic monogram perfect for brightening up any home decor space.
Have you seen the fabulous acrylic letters at Michaels stores? They have various sizes; this is one of the larger ones. When I saw them I just knew my monogram-loving heart couldn’t pass one up! They are so pretty on their own, but add some scrapbook paper to the back and… wowza!!
I know you probably don’t really need a tutorial for this but, just in case, I’m sharing one anyway.
The hardest part of this project? Picking out the scrapbook paper to you! I’m a major paper hoarder so I had a LOT to choose from. You can see on Instagram my other possible choices. I loved the idea of using multiple papers for the background as suggested by some, but ultimately went with this pretty floral paper from My Mind’s Eye.
Immediately place the paper monogram face down on the decoupage. Press down firmly, focusing on the edges.
If this were true paper crafting you would probably sand off that excess paper for a nice, smooth finish. But we can’t do that with the acrylic! It will leave nasty scratch marks. Instead, trim off the excess paper with an X-acto knife.
This is going to look fabulous paired with all the flower stems I purchased over the weekend! I can’t wait to finish putting my spring mantel together, and you can bet this floral monogram will be front and center!
