I’m picky about what I’ll display in my home or clients homes. I do like rooms to feel personal and decided my mantle needed our last name initial. This DIY was pretty simple and recommend you making your own.
Supplies you need: Burlap, paint, pencil, font type, glue, and frame
The process: Find the frame you’ll be using first. Make sure it fits well on your mantel and I recommend using a glassless frame. If you use a frame with glass then glue your fabric on the glass.
Measure the area inside of the frame. Cut your fabric to size. No worries if you’re off a bit, as I was then just grabbed some trim I had and glued that layer on to cover my mistakes. You can use any kind of plain fabric. I like added texture, so went for burlap.
Find the font you want to use. There are so many fonts out there. Check out tootledoo designs, as they are amazing! You can write anything you want, a full monogram, entire last name, or just an initial. You may want to enlarge one of the fonts and copy it, make a stencil and trace on your fabric, or freehand it using pencil.
Once you’ve drawn your letter, go ahead and use a smaller brush to apply paint (any kind works) on the outline of the letter. Then fill in the entire letter with paint.
After the paint drys decide if your letter needs anything else. You may want to outline the letter in another color, or glitter…think about what makes sense with your style. Go ahead and use clear glue on the surface of your frame. Affix your fabric and let dry. Add any additional trim on the inside of your frame.

There is nothing more magical to me than seeing All White. When I look outside after a fresh snowfall. I admire an all white outfit and even more so an entire room in white. Here are my all White picks. . . . oh so fun!
When it comes to giving a gift why not give something handmade. When someone is taking their energy to create a handcrafted good, I call it Art. There is nothing I find more beautiful than when I know someone handmade a great gift.

I think if using natural items from nature like recycling.
I come from Alaska and everyone hunts, not for sport but for food. If you hunt, then why not use the bones…. not for everyone, but I find them to be beautiful.
Marble is one of my fav’s, but it is hard to take care of, but as a back splash- clever!
I really love drift wood and reclaimed barn wood. I love how the wood was used to make a beautiful headboard.
Fur or animal skins, hopefully from sustainable hunting and not sport or faux!
I love how this deck was built around and with the trees. No need to cut them down!
