I worked on a fun project this weekend. It was simple and better yet, I already had everything I needed except for the $3.49 letter "A" from Michaels.
I took a square frame that I got a while back, cheap! I knew that I'd find just the right thing to do with it. I took some black and cream toile print fabric that I had left over from another project and then bought a 9" letter "A" to represent the first initial of our last name.
After spray painting the frame and the letter, I simply took the fabic and placed it over the cardboard back of the frame. I made sure to pull it tight so that it wasn't wrinkled. I hot glued the fabric in place in the back to keep it from slipping.
After that, I took gorilla tape and secured it on the back for extra support.
I turned it over and hot glued the letter right onto the fabric.
This was so simple to make, and I love the finished result.
Chances are that you've got most everything you need to create one of these also. If you do, send me a picture of it, I want to see it!
