Monograms and Banners

Spell it out...your decoration that is. I love monograms and banners...there is something about words and letters that are so simple but so fun. I put away the paint and took out some paper for these recent projects...
I have not decided what to put in the bird cage yet, but until then a little banner dresses it up a bit.
I love these easy monograms. I got the idea from Joys of Home. All you do is print out a letter off the computer, cut it out, and tape it on a plate! EASY! And when you want to change it, just rip it off! No free hand, no stenciling...sounds like a dream to me!
And for overachievers...a little free hand...Simple wood cut outs from the craft store also work for the lazy crafter! You know who you are... ;)
So go dress up your walls with lovely letters...we all have names so no excuses...

What do you like to monogram?

  2. Very cute once again, you rock! I love the "nest" idea. (that's going on my birdcage)
    I have been looking for a giant "N" for my living room. I'm so going to the craft store today. I love the way that "U" looks inside the frame.

  12. Oh gees...I loved all of these pics! They were all so cute! I had to laugh at your comment about the fire. It is definitely a thorn in my husband's side that I feel the need to have it on from the minute I get home until I go to bed. I try turning it on in the summertime, but he puts his foot down on that one! :(

  14. Sooooo cute! I haven't done a lot of monograms in decorating (love them on the girls' clothes and on bags!). But I did paint the initials of my younger daughter's name in purple with bright green borders...haven't hung them yet though.

  15. those are amazing, I need to get on it and make some for my sons' pictures around the house. even I can handle a black frame with an initial. It might be hung crooked, but...

  16. What great banners. I love monograms - one of the reasons I have an embroidery machine! Now I'm trying to not have TOO many monograms around the home (can there be such a thing?)

  17. I love the Spring banner! So cute and a great way to decorate! I want to make one for my mantle!

    I love making gifts with monograms. I'm making a little ragamuffin wreath for Ralph's niece's birthday this weekend, and I'm putting a wooden 'S' in the middle for her name. Kids love it when their monograms are on their stuff :)

  18. I definatly love me some monograms. I have letters all over the place in my house. I can't get enough of them. I bought myself some supplies this week to start my first banner. I'm not quiet sure where I will hang it but your post got me ready to go. Thanks girl!

  19. I love the monogram ideas but I also have to ask did you paint the dresser yourself?? If so, do you have a previous post about it. I am new to your blog but LOVING it. I have a similar dresser that I'd love to repaint with an aged look. Yours is just what I have in mind.

  21. Oh so cute...

    ...and I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who just can't decide what to go in a birdcage! It's killing me that it's empty but I just can't find the perfect thing :)
