Sequin Monogram Letter DIY

Glam Sequin Monogram Letter DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Kristen and Missy from Sweetly Chic Events & Designs, are here sharing an easy way to glam up a monogram letter by using sequins. How great would this look as party decor at a bridal shower, baby shower, 1st birthday, or even as some bingy room decor for a girl's bedroom.

Monograms are a classic trend that never go out of style! We decided to bring an element of glitz and glam to a traditional monogram by adding sequins. This quick and easy DIY will be sure to dazzle at your next event or bring a little fun to your home decor!

Supplies:
  • Elastic sequin cording
  • Paper mache letter
  • Decorative flower
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

Directions:

1.) We want to start by covering up the edges of the letter, so take a strand of your elastic sequin cording and carefully cut pieces to adhere to the edges of your paper mache letter that can not be wrapped with the elastic.

2.) With hot glue, adhere the strands of your pre-cut elastic to any edging of the perimeter of your paper mache letter.

3.) Starting at any edge of your paper mache letter, hot glue the end of your cording, starting on the back of your letter, and begin to carefully wrap the sequin band around the letter. Be sure as your wrap, there are no gaps between the layers of the cording. If you have some small gaps, you can easily fill them in with loose sequins.

4.) As you get to a new edge of your letter, you may need to start wrapping the cording in the opposite direction (depending on your letter of choice).

5.) We wrapped our sequins vertically along the outer edge of our letter E to save on time and to give it a smoother look.

6.) Finish wrapping any other areas of your letter. This should leave you with a fully covered letter!

7.) We wanted to add a little extra something to our monogram, so we decided to add a pretty coral colored silk flower for a fun detail!

DIY TUTORIAL: How to Make a Monogrammed Canvas Favor Bag

When I realized that Caroline B made these adorable favor bags for her daughter Taylynn's 5th Birthday, I had to ask her if I could repost her tutorial. Wait 'til you see how simple it is. I could totally do this!

For the party favors we had lots of goodies so I wanted cute bags for the guests to put their things in. I made these bags for the girls, and they were so easy.

SUPPLIES

  • Canvas tote
  • Doily
  • Paint (I used house paint, but fabric paint is best)
  • Spray adhesive
  • Freezer paper
  • Iron
  • Xacto knife
  • Sponge brush

Start by spraying adhesive onto the doily and place it on your bag.

With your sponge brush paint over the doily and on the rim of the doily.

Slowly remove the doily.

Trace your initial onto your freezer paper, wax side down and with an xacto knife cut out your initial.

Then with a hot iron and freezer paper wax side down, iron the paper until it sealed on your bag.

You can then paint your letter and peel off the paper

Voila! I love it, Caroline. Thanks for letting me share your tutorial. And btw, I noticed your daughter has lots of "K" and "A" initial friends. :)

Also, if you haven't seen the photos from the party these bags come from, you must. It's that gorgeous!
