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!
- Elastic sequin cording
- Paper mache letter
- Decorative flower
- Hot glue gun
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.
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!
8.) Carefully adhere your silk flower with a touch of hot glue.
Thank you, Missy and Kristen, for once again sharing your boundless creativity! I would never have thought to use sequin cording... brilliant idea!

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.
- Canvas tote
- Paint (I used house paint, but fabric paint is best)
- Spray adhesive
- Freezer paper
- 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!
