Tweaks : Monogram Wall Plaque For A Nursery

Yep, more nursery tweaks for your enjoyment.  This one was so simple.  I only wanted to show it because I thought it might give hope to those of you out there, like me, that do not really have a budget for redecorating your spaces.  Plus, I think it came out really cute!  A little Holly Hobbie maybe, but cute none the less.

I had already transformed a wooden wall plaque with hooks for my son’s room three years ago to make better use of a gift that was not our taste.  Wanting to add his initials to his space in a fun way, I took what had been a space for pictures and made a base for those cool alphabet cards by Jenn Ski.

Again, I wanted to personalize something for our new arrival, so I decided to tweak this very handy piece.  Using the same method as I outlined in the How To Make A Monogram Flag I pulled together a little patchwork of vintage fabric letters to round out the handmade and vintage feel of our little girl’s space.

After stitching around each letter I folded the fabric around rectangles of thin cardboard and then using loops of masking tape, popped them into place.  Wholla!

It was a sweet way to bring more fun vintage fabrics into her room, plus the hooks are great for holding items while changing our squirmy little thing!

Happy Tweaking!
