diy monogram frame

Hello everybody!  Christmas came and went too fast for me! I can't believe it is already over, but we had a great time with our family all weekend.  I hope you all had a very blessed time as well!   I meant to post this last minute gift idea BEFORE Christmas, but I decided to just relax and enjoy the time instead.   
But, this is my go to gift, not just for Christmas, if I need something quick, it is such a simple idea and you can change it up anyway you'd like.  And it is very inexpensive, which is even better! 



My little boy has a teacher that comes over every Friday and works with him on his speech, since he was a very late talker.  But now he basically leads the session!  She says not many of the kids she sees get to his level by the time she is done with them, so I am really thankful for that!   I wanted to give her a little something for Christmas and a "thanks for teaching my kid to talk" gift. ;) 


Supplies:
scarpbook paper
frame
an initial letter
glue

1. I got everything from Hobby Lobby, of course, my favorite place.  They have different sizes and shapes of letters there.
2. Trace the glass onto your scrapbook paper and cut it out.
3. Glue pretty side of paper to the glass.  I used modge podge.   You don't even have to glue the paper, you can just put the paper in the frame.  
After that, I Gorilla Glued the letter onto the glass in the middle of the frame.  The total for this was under $8! 


And it looks like this, there are so many variations on this idea, with as many scrapbook paper designs out there, you can match this to any decor!  I think I have made one for everyone in my family ;)

  4. Cute! I love those little letters everytime I see them at Hobby Lobby but I could never think of good way to use them. Maybe I will just have to pick one up next time.
