Let's Get Crafty

Wedding monogram letters

I have some cute letters for the wedding and was not sure what to do with them.  I came across a picture frame that was missing the glass and the back.  One of those things where the picture falls off the wall & the glass breaks and it is just easier to buy a new frame.  Somehow, I cant’ seem to make myself get rid of those things though–and most of the time I find a use for them.

DSC00292I laid the wooden letters out inside the frame to see if I thought I would like it.  I am painting it on an old piece of pink paper from a scrapbook project.  I had to remove the pictures because I had forgotten to scan them, and so the paper is torn.  I saved it to use later.  It makes a great sized mat to work on.

I am going to paint the frame silver and the letters pale blue.  I toyed with other colors (okay–i painted other colors first!) but liked this best.

A lot of my things are trial and error.  I painted the letter K silver and did NOT like it.  For some reason, the curve of the letters made the silver not show as well.

After everything was painted, I tried to figure out how to attach it all together.  I pulled out white and silver string and raffia and yarn.  I settled on the braided twine and attached it all with thumb tacks.   It took a bit of patience to get the tacks to go in the wood and not break the thin little pieces.

And the final product!
