Monogram Home Decor

I like incorporating my paper crafting into my home decor. Sometimes it's hard to do this because patterned paper is not really designed as home decor. However, Field Notes is perfect for scrapbooking, card-making, altered projects, and yes-Home Decor! So, today's piece is a Monogrammed Home Decor Item perfect for my living room shelf.

I found this little B on a totally random trip to TJ Maxx with the DH! While at the checkout register, he was just about to slide his card, and I'm like, "Wait!!!" I saw this cute, distressed letter and ran over to get it from a shelf, knowing it would be the perfect little home decor piece.

This little monogramed letter was super fun and easy to make. I trimmed an acrylic doily in half and adhere to the letter base. Then, I trimmed strips of paper from the Field Notes 12" x 12" paper pad and Butterfly collection paper, notched the edges with decorative scissors and adhered to the letter base. I twisted some lace into a flower, stuck a pin through the flower and affixed some crystals to the letter base. Super duper easy!

This little monogrammed letter fits perfectly in my living room, just enough pretty touches on it to work year round!
