Faux Leather Letter

I was inspired by this project by Being Brook to create a similar monogram. I purchased some vinyl from Jo-Ann's on clearance. Then simply traced the shape with a sharpie on the back side of the vinyl. Then I used pliers to cut down the tack so that I could glue them on to the wooden letter. 

I added the letter to one of my floating shelves in my living room. The entire project cost about $3 bucks. I am hoping to try and do a larger set or an entire word now that I know how easy this project is for me to complete. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. V for VERY well done. What a simple project that adds some character and charm to your V. And, all done for a few dollars. I need you to help me keep my project budget down to a few dollars.

  2. So cute! I'm kind of addicted to letter projects lately. It's starting to look like "Word World" around here. (Are you familiar with that show?) I might need to add a "leather" letter to my collection. :)
