Glam Monogram Letter

letter2

letter1
My cute son, Zac, got married on Monday!!!! We had the privilege to help with some of the decorations. My new daughter in law wanted a monogram “L” at the signing table.
letter 3 We looked on Pinterest to get some ideas of what she was looking for, and we fell in love with the designs that had the raised texture. At first, it looked like they had used glue to make a raised design, so I tried that but it just didn’t look right. My husband suggested getting stencils and gluing them to the board and then spraying it with the paint, but again it wasn’t as dramatic as I wanted.

Then my husband suggested that we used the patching plaster and it was perfect! Plaster is super cheap and it does an amazing job.

All you need to do is secure your stencil to the board with a light coat of spray glue. Let dry before adding the plaster. Next, spread the plaster on to the stencil, and make it as thick as you would like, and it doesn’t need to be smooth because that will add character to your piece.
letter6 Once it is completely covered, quickly pull off your stencil. Make sure to pull it straight up and not on an angle.

letter7 Let dry completely! It will take a couple hours.

letter8
We spray painted ours to match the colors of the wedding but honestly, it looked pretty cool without the paint. This would look amazing in any room of your house!

    I expect that the newlyweds will enjoy having this as part of their decor. I really love posts, like this one, which is straight forward and shows all the challenges you faced before coming up with the ultimate finished product!
