Right now, I’m at that age of wedding bonanzas! Every weekend is bridal showers, bachelorette parties, weddings… all of the I DO FESTIVITIES! It’s an amazing time and I’m so thankful to be apart of this exciting time in everyone’s lives 🙂 This season brings me to today’s project… a monogram window. I came up with this idea when I came across some stencils at Michael’s. I thought hmmm… “these letter stencils would be perfect for all of my soon-to-be bride crafts.” I already had all of these fabulous old windows at my grandparents’ house. Put two and two together and voila!!! If you’re thinking of trying this, seriously go for it. It’s adorable and personal and easy all in one, who doesn’t love that?!? To see how to make this DIY monogram window keep reading 🙂
All you’ll need for this DIY monogram window is:
- A letter stencil
- An old window
- Acrylic paint (I used white)
- A craft sponge on a stick
- To begin… simply clean the window with a rag and some cleaner. I used Windex, naturally. It worked like a charm and ensured a clean surface for the paint to adhere to.
- Pull out your corresponding letter stencil to prepare for the fun part!
- Tear out the letter so your stencil is all ready to go.
- Next, you’ll want to tape down the stencil to the window. MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS STEP! If you don’t your cute monogrammed window will instantly become a smeared mess! I used painter’s tape for this part because it does the job and is easy to remove.
- Pour out your acrylic paint to dip your craft sponge into. I find it easy to use a paper plate for this. A piece of cardboard will also work just as well.
- Load up your sponge.
- Dab over your stencil. Try to be efficient and get all the nooks and crannies. Don’t be too generous though…if you use too much paint it will bleed outside of the stencil lines.
- Once you’ve filled in all of the spaces it should look something like this:
- Let it dry for about 2 hours or more. Then remove the tape and the stencil and you’re done 🙂
How cute is this monogram window?! It’s simple but has tons of character. Tie in the distressed frame with the personalized letter and you have yourself a precious gift and decoration.
