Wall Monogram with Paper Straw Border

I was able to get some seven to nine inch wall letters from Restoration Hardware's sale for $0.99 a piece last week.  I wanted to do something to freshen up Wynn's room inexpensively.

I picked up a pack of canvases from Michaels the other day on sale, and I also had a 25% off coupon. They ended up being about $2.00 a piece. 


I had some leftover paper straws from a baby shower that I helped out on. I placed the straws around the edges of the canvas.  
 Then I placed the letters where I wanted Rob to screw them in, and he screwed them in through the back into the hole where you would hang the letters on the wall.


Here is a close up of the final product. It brings a little pink into her mainly blue room.  I like how it cost under ten dollars to create. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. WOW. That turned out incredible. I love that you always say how much your projects cost. That certainly looks like it should have been WAY more money. AND, I am dying to get a peek at that adorable room. From what I see, I already love it.
