Sadly, 10 Days of Dorm is coming to a close.
Can you possibly think of a better way to wrap up the second to last day of fun than with this darling monogram?
I didn't think so.
A dorm room without a monogram is like pizza without pepperoni, eyelashes without mascara, or a magazine without pictures: just plain boring.
With this very fast and very easy idea, you can create a pretty monogram without spending a pretty penny. All you need to craft this gem is patterned wrapping paper and a plain wooden letter (and of course tape and scissors!).
I found the first letter of my name for only $3.50 at Hobby Lobby. At this price, it would be silly not to go back and purchase there rest of my initials!
And now the fun begins! Cut a piece of wrapping paper that is much larger than your letter.
Begin wrapping the letter as you would a birthday present (this is where gift wrapping skills come in handy!). Tape down all the edges to ensure a smooth finish and pretty front side.
TA-DA! You now have a charming letter to decorate your new home.
Since this DIY is so fun and easy, make a matching monogram for your roomie!
Want to know another little tip? Take a piece of the paper to college along with you. If there's a tear, you can doctor it up in seconds!
To wrap up this post (get it, WRAP up?), I have one question for you.
What pretty paper will you use to cover your name?
Stop by tomorrow for the LAST day of dorm and a post about remembering all the the lovely things you'll be leaving behind at home. Have a beautiful rest of the day!
