Knock Off Monogram Sign


I saw this on Pinterest and fell in love with the simplicity of it, but didn't like the price tag.




So I made my own.




I already had everything I needed to make it, except for the letter.

I found the W at Hobby Lobby and the best part...




It was in the clearance aisle! That's right. $1.00.




I think I used Weathered Oak to stain my board.




Then glued the burlap and the letter on. I used Aleene's Spray Tacky Glue for the burlap and it worked like a charm.




The "tacks" in the corners are actually brads with the prongs cut off and glued on.










Theirs was $59.99, mine cost me $1.00.
Not too bad, huh?

Happy Friday!

You figure out EVERYthing, Terri! Nice job. and glad to see that I'm not the only one with two musical instruments in the room. One of my little grandsons asked me the other day, 'Grandma, why do you have TWO pianos in the room??' I responded truthfully with, 'Because we gave one to our daughter.' :-)

Found your blog from Tatertots & Jello link party. This is really cute! I have some scrap pieces of burlap I could easily do this with. Thanks for the idea.

That is super cute. What a great idea. I am doing sort of the same thing only with mirrors for Christmas presents this year.

From the thumbnail on the link up party, it looked like you had taped off the "W" instead of putting it on top of the burlap. I like how you did this, and what a steal on the letter. I swear, I see things like this and then I want to go to that store and buy everything on clearance.

I'd love it if you linked up with our party this week!
