Vanessa is one of my Bloggy/Mommy friends who I just adore. She is a wiz with home decor and party planning, and shares everything so we can create too! Today she's sharing with us some adorable nursery art, perfect for a little boy or girl!
Hello Grits & Giggles readers! I'm Vanessa from See Vanessa Craft, where I blog about my love for glitter and glue guns. Thank you to Jenilyn for inviting me to be part of her "Becoming Mommy" series. This definitely doesn't help my baby fever. I'd love for you to stop by my blog and say hello! You can also find me on facebook, twitter and pinterest. On to the tutorial! I'll be showing you how to make felt monogram art for the nursery. It is super easy to do and makes for a great baby shower gift. You can change the colors to match the nursery for a unique and special gift. Check out my hand dyed & freezer paper onesies tutorial for another baby shower gift idea.
Embroidery Thread & Needle
Paper Cutter (or scissors)
Letter Stencil (or print out your own)
Step 2: You can make your own letter stencil by typing out your favorite block letter font onto a word document, and then print the letter out on card stock and cut it out. Using the marker, trace the letter stencil to the backside of the felt. Cut out the felt letter.
Step 3: Stitch around the letter with embroidery thread.
Step 4: Place the letter on top of the scrapbook paper and place inside of the frame. You can secure the letter to the scrapbook paper using glue or tape if needed.
