I saw the monogram wrapped with twine on Pinterest. I thought it was so cute, but didn’t know what to do with it. So, I picked up this old window pane and paired them together. It is hung in the living room at our cottage and I think it looks great. Side note, these wrapped letters are much easier to do with letters that are open and not closed (B is much harder than S).
This is a headboard that I made for our cottage. I actually made two and have made several others besides these. The reason, they are SO easy and SO inexpensive compared to the hundreds of dollars that Pottery Barn charges for theirs. Start with a piece of plywood and spray glue on foam from JoAnn Fabrics. After that, pull your fabric around it and staple it in the back. That’s it! Project time of probably an hour max!
So, you may notice that I am a little obsessed with Pinterest. Some of the ideas are great, some don’t really work, and some just need a little adjustment. This is a pin that I tweaked and LOVED the results. I took this adorable photo of two of my girls laughing and squishing faces. I burned a high res copy to a disc and brought it to Office Max. They charge $3.90 for a 24×36 B&W print (color is around $25). Now on Pinterest they recommended buying foam board and gluing it on yourself for a project total of around $15. Well, I would much rather pay Office Max an additional $21 to put it on foam board for me. They actually got a wrinkle the first time they ran it through their machine and had to redo it (so glad I didn’t try that myself!). So, for a total of around $26, this is adorable and the quality is surprisingly great! I would NOT recommend this with a low quality original photo. The larger you get it, the worse it may look. What do you think? Do you love it? I actually made a different one too and they are both in the girl’s room at our cottage.
