If you’re looking for something unique to add to the exterior of your home, this is brilliant…and, I might add, so lovely! Most of us love monograms and what a fabulous way to add a personal touch to your home! In the tutorial, they adds succulents to their wooden monogram, but I really love the way Remodelaholic added the impatiens to hers, so that’s what I put in my wooden letter. Impatiens don’t like a lot of sun, so I hung mine by the entry way the way she did in this photo.
You’ll be surprised at how many compliments you will receive after you have hung it up! It has added so much color and charm to the exterior of my home. Flowers always perk up your curb appeal!
Wikipedia says: “Monograms first appeared on coins, as early as 350BC. The earliest known examples are of the names of Greek cities who issued the coins, often the first two letters of the city’s name.
Monograms have been used as signatures by artists and craftsmen on paintings, sculptures and pieces of furniture, especially when guilds enforced measures against unauthorized participation in the trade. An individual’s monogram is often a very fancy piece of art used for stationery, for adorning luggage, for embroidery on clothing, and so forth. These monograms may have two or three letters.”
Watch this step by step tutorial to see how they make their monogram letters.
