I know I haven’t crafted for a couple of weeks.

It has been kind of busy around here lately and I just haven’t had the motivation to be crafty. 

I seriously have a huge list of things I want to make, but I just don’t have the time or the motivation to actually make it! 🙂

I was able to put together a simple craft today, that I am actually using for a wedding present.

It was super easy to make, and was really inexpensive.  I had all of the supplies on hand.  

Yes, I even had the M.  

I was planning on using that for another project, but it just so happens that the last name of the newlywed couple begins with M.  


Step 1: Paint your frame.  I painted mine black.  It required a couple of coats. 

Step 2: Paint your letter black, or whichever color that you prefer. 🙂

Step 3.  Mod podge some paper on your letter and then use sandpaper and distressing ink to make it look old.  Then use lace and a button to embellish.  I tried to keep it simple.  This person has a very similar style to my own, and I like to keep things looking simple. 

Step 4: Tie a small bow (I used fabric, that I ripped) around the top of your frame.  Then secure another piece of fabric to hot glue to your letter.  

 And your done! 

I really like how it turned out! The best part was that it only took about a half hour to put together and I didn’t have to run out and get any supplies!

I think I might make myself one in the future.  We will be moving soon, and when we get settled I would really like to have a gallery style wall and I think this would look perfect for my wall! 

Linking up to these parties!
