Monogram Ornaments

My daughter and I saw some cute monogram ornaments in a high end gift shop that sold for $7.95 each. My daughter wanted one, so I told her I could make them for pennies. I already had most of the supplies on hand leftover from other projects. I purchased a pack of assorted fun foam sheets at the dollar store. These look great on the tree and would make nice gifts or package ties.

Approximate Time: Less than 30 minutes

Supplies:

  • fun foam
  • poster board or thin cardboard
  • piece of ribbon for hanger
  • assorted seed beads, bugle beads, and sequins
  • craft glue
  • scissors

Instructions:

  1. If you're good at drawing, you can freehand initials onto cardboard. If not, simply find a font you like on the computer and print out the initials the desired size you like. Mine were approximately 4 inches tall.
  2. Once you print out the initials onto paper, glue them to thin cardboard or poster board. (I used an old file folder. You could use a cereal box, etc.)
  3. Cut out initials from the cardboard and trace around it onto desired color of fun foam. You will need to cut out 2 initials for each ornament for stability.
  4. When gluing the two together, sandwich the ribbon between the two pieces at the top to create a hanger.
  5. Apply a liberal amount of craft glue to the front of the initial. Sprinkle on seed beads, bugle beads, and sequins. Set aside to dry.

This would make a really cute door decoration for a little or not so little person's room.. You could even spell out the whole first name. such as Lisa's Room..
