DIY Monogram Plate ~ Simple Spring Mother’s Day Craft
Down here in the south, we put our initials on everything. If there is a woman who was born and raised in the south, the chances are she has got something monogrammed. In fact, the chances are even better she has a LOT of things monogrammed.
We sure love seeing our name or initials a lot. It is kind of fun!
This is a simple spring or Mother’s Day craft. And this DIY monogram plate is perfect when you are looking for a budget savvy project that really shines.
DIY MONOGRAM PLATE
Burlap charger (Hobby Lobby)
Wood letter of your choice
Paint (spray or roll on)
Hot glue, glue gun
All of these items can be found at your local craft store.
1. Begin by removing all stickers from your wood letter.
2. Apply two coats of paint (color and finish is up to you) allowing each coat to dry thoroughly.
3. Once the letter is completely dry, apply a generous amount of glue to the back of your letter. Keep the glue however to the center of the letter as you don’t want it to seep over the sides.
4. Press the letter to the center of the plate, holding it in place until it is secure. If you wish, you may use a pencil and a tape measure prior to gluing if you want to be sure to locate the exact center of the plate.
Your monogram plate is now ready to be displayed. Simply prop it on a plate stand, use a wire holder, or prop it on a shelf as is.
