I LOVE monograms. LOVE them. I think you guys know that after seeing my monogrammed fall wreath and custom monogrammed door mat! And based on the comments on those projects – I know you guys do too! So I found a bunch of great projects that I thought I would share with you!
1. Create Custom Bottles
How awesome is this custom monogram soap and hand sanitizer dispenser! Best part – you can make it even if you don’t have one of those fancy cutting machines. Check out the post by Amy @ The Idea Room to get the details on how.
2. Make a Scented Display Piece
How great would this smell in your bedroom or bathroom? Jami @ freckled laundry made this lavender covered monogram letter!
3. Spruce up a Wreath
In need of a wreath for your door now that Christmas is over? How about following the idea that Meg @ A Little Knick Knack had and covering a monogram in moss? I LOVE this idea!
4. Make up some Mugs
Pick up some Goodwill mugs and make some custom monogrammed mugs using a porcelain marker. Gabrielle @ Design Mom has the full tutorial.
5. Gussy up a Pillow
How about creating a custom monogram pillow? Stephanie Lynn @ Under the Table and Dreaming came up with these that use a Flocked Heat Transfer to achieve the monogram look. Love it!
6. Personalize a Clipboard
I love this idea – create custom monogram clipboards for your kids to put their school papers and other stuff on. I found this one on 4 Growing Boys – such a great idea! I want one just for me!
7. Frame it Up
Create a custom art piece like Jessica @ This Blessed Life made. How adorable is that? It only cost her $1.55! Brilliant!
8. Make a 3-D Standout Piece
Or you could make a 3-D Mosaic Monogram like Suzy @ Suzy’s Artsy Craftsy Sitcom made. This chick is amazing. She actually made that letter out of cardboard herself! Great tutorial!
9. Learn about Quilling
Did you know what Quilling was? I am going to be honest – I didn’t. But after seeing this gorgeous quilled monogram – I think I am going to have to learn. Quilling is the art of rolling paper and Kara @ Crafttastical has done a fantastic tutorial on how to not only learn how but how to make a beautiful piece like this!
10. Write it up
Finally – how about making your own monogrammed stationary set. This is a great idea for a gift or even just something special for you. I found this great tutorial featured at Design Sponge!
