Give me a "W"

If you look around on blog land you see there are a lot of monogram projects.  This is my take on it. 

I started with a picture frame I picked up at a thrift store I think for .99 and a wooden letter at Wal-Mart for $1.98.  First thing I needed to do was spray paint.  Sometimes I think I am going to put the project in one place and then change my mind so that is why I picked blue.  There were a couple of places it would work and it is a really nice blue. 

After spray painting I stapled burlap to the back of the frame.  I have seen some that just hang the frame and the letter inside using the wall as  the back drop.  I like that also but since I wasn't exactly sure where I was going to put this I deceided to go with the burlap.

I deceided to hang this out on my front porch because of the blue accents I have out there. 
I am really happy with the finished project.  All I did was hang the frame and then put a nail through the burlap onto the wall behind it and hung the W.  I really like the burlap as the back ground.  I think it really helped make the W pop.

Here is the close up and down below is a picture that gives you a little better idea of the surroundings. 

in case your wondering what the "blob" is under the is a birds nest.  It looks nicer than it does in the picture :)

And there you have first monogram project.  A very easy project that any crafter regardless of skill would be able to pull off.  Please let me know if you give it a try ~ I would love to see your project!

Have a blessed day!
