DIY: Monogram Brooch Pin


Well, it's been a little while since Pin Week and I figured it was about time for another 'pin'torial.

I had a wooden letter laying around my craft room and some pretty paper left over from this project that I knew I had to put to work.  And so, this tutorial came to be.

Wanna make a monogram pin of your own?

HERE'S THE HOW TO:

Stuff you'll need:



Decorative paper

Scissors

Decoupage adhesive

Wooden letter (Look in the woodworking section of your craft store. I chose a 'P' for my last name.)

Paint (I chose a shimmery neutral, but a bright, bold color would be a lot of fun as well.)

Paintbrush

Pin 

Superglue


Method:

1. Paint your letter.



2. Trace your letter onto the paper. 



3. Cut the letter out of the paper along the outline you drew.



4. Glue the paper cutout to the wooden letter with the decoupage adhesive.




5. Glue the pin to the back of the letter with superglue.


Ta-da!  Now you have your very own monogram pin.

Here's to a great week ahead guys!

    1. Hey Diana! The photos in this post (and most of my DIY posts) were actually taken with a Canon 5D camera. The photos for the 'Lately' post that you asked about were just snapshots I took with my iphone. Thanks for your sweet comments about my photos.
