Today, I will be sharing some monogram goodness for you. Ariel from PMQ for Two thought that it would be fun to gather the most eclectic gals she knows to create the dopest ornament hop to date…so here I am. If you are stopping on by from Casa Watkins Living, Welcome!
This year I wanted to do something different when it came to holiday decor. One of those things was, I wanted all of us to have matching stockings (hung by the fireplace). As I was talking out loud about my plans my children asked me, “how will we know which stocking belongs to us?” Like a mother, I responded saying, “don’t worry, I have something in mind.” I normally am not a BIG monogram type of person, but I knew for this occasion I wanted to create monogram washi tape ornaments. So I did that and it is the easiest, most messiest ornament I ever made. Haha! No lie, I got washi tape all over the place, but hey…it looks pretty dang cool!
Monogram Washi Tape Ornament Materials
- Wooden letters (I purchased mine from Target-located in the gift wrapping aisle)
- Ribbon (one thin and one thick)
- Washi Tape (I picked mine up from Hobby Lobby)
- Snow flake ornaments
- Mod Podge *** optional (I did not use it, but you may choose to)
Steps to Creating a Monogram Washi Tape Ornament
- Cut washi tape to desired length and adhere to wooden letter. Bend tape over edge.
- Once finished with the first strip, move to the next and repeat step one. If you have to bend extra tape over a curve, cut tape in a triangle, like shown in image below.
- Repeat the first two steps until finished.
- *If needed to secure that the tape you can apply Mod Podge to your monogram letter.
- With your thin ribbon, attach the monogram washi tape and snowflake together.
- Tie a bow with the thicker ribbon (attach to the thinner ribbon).
- Attach to stocking.
This does not seem like much, but please do know if you plan to recreate this, the washi tape makes a huge mess. I wanted a big ribbon to soften the look and give it a feminine look, but feel free to use any size ribbon you want. You can also choose to use the same color ribbon instead of different colors. These are the colors that I am working with in my home for Christmas and I love how this turned out (even though it was messy). If you are in the mood to create, be sure to hop on over to Two Thirty Five Design to see what ornament goodness she is cooking. Also, to see more of my holiday decor, be sure to tune in next week as I will be hosting a Winter Eclectic Home Tour….See you Then!
