I shared this over at Craft Quickies last week, but I am excited to show you another cute little design element from Baby B’s recent baptism reception.
We had a gorgeous table full of delicious food and cute little homemade touches (you’ll see the whole thing soon- the photos are on my computer at home!) and one of my favorites was this adorable little B monogram.
If you remember, I’m a pretty big fan of monograms- like the paint chip paper mache B that hangs over B’s crib.
This monogram is a bit easier (no tiny paint chip cutouts to deal with), but we’re bringing back the mod podge! It is so darn easy and cute, and you could use this as a cake topper, a wall hanging, in a shadowbox- the options are endless!
Here’s how I did it:
First off, I took a plain wood B from Darice that I found at Jo-Ann Fabrics, and painted with with Martha Stewart’s pearl-finish all surface paint in pink.
After a few minutes of dry time, I took a Wilton doily , and applied mod podge to the back of it. I placed it on the letter and smoothed it to remove any bubbles, and then cut off the rest of the doily, since I only wanted a small part of it on the letter.
Let the mod podge dry for an hour, and you’re done!
How incredibly easy is that?
You could also staple some ribbon to the back to hang it in a bedroom, or paint and decorate the backside to use in a shadowbox or any other display!
I think this would also be a darling cake topper for a birthday party or wedding.
