Days of Chalk and Chocolate: Christmas Chair Monogram

Christmas Chair Monogram

I have fantasies of stenciling a monogram on the back of our chairs. Jim would flip. He's not into changing something that is just fine the way it is. So I decided to make a monogram decoration for the back of our chairs for Christmas. It was easy and adds a little something.

I used a graphic that I found on The Graphics Fairy. I saved the image to my computer and then inserted it into a word document, adding the initial. I printed out the copies used a circle cutter to cut them out. Then I glued them onto slightly larger circles of red card stock.

I used some sparkle glaze to add a hint of sparkle to the image and then I Mod Podged the whole thing mostly to make it more durable.

I cut some greens from our pine tree and taped them on the back. I then hot glued the whole thing to a white sparkly Christmas ribbon. I would have preferred a red one but what can you do. I had it and it was handy so white it is!

Cute right?  I'm happy. Jim's happy that our chairs are not permanently altered. I should remind him of all this when we discuss his tattoo.

Ok so I was just browsing around some link parties and came upon a blog I've never met before called Just So Lovely.  Look at her pretty herb wreaths and check out her site for some more!
