DIY Monogram Sign



This week I have been contemplating on what to give my friend for her baby shower that would be more sentimental than a store bought toy. 
This week I will be sharing two home made gifts that sure was a hit at the party!!!

Today I will be showing you how I made this monogram sign for her little girl to be!

Something about home-made gifts shows that it is made from the heart and gives it more of a sentimental value!

4.) While you are waiting for the frame and wooden letter to dry, go ahead and mod podge    the back of your craft paper/printed fabric and attatch to back piece of frame.
This will serve as your background!
5.) When your frame is dried go ahead and attach back piece and secure.
