I had the honor of attending a great friends baby shower today! And of course I waited until the last minute to make a gift....I started it last night! I love to receive personalized hand made gifts, it always makes me feel special, so I try to always make something for special occasions. I decided to make a monogrammed frame, a name block, and I attempted a pillow that turned out ok.
K is for Khloe, isn't that the sweetest name! I started with a red frame from the dollar store and spray painted it Heirloom White.
I almost remembered to take a picture before I started glazing it with my Ralph Lauren "Smoke" glaze.
Here it is finished I used my Cricut to cut the K out of pink vinyl and applied it directly to the glass. I used a staple gun to attach ribbon to the back of the frame to hang it with.
I love name blocks, I think they are adorable. I used 2x2's and cut them down to the size I wanted. I painted them with craft paint (I literally finished this 5 minutes before I left) and glazed them. I applied the paper with spray adhesive and sanded the edges. I cut her name out of pink vinyl and applied it directly to the wood.
Here is my pillow attempt. I used muslin and some cute white eyelet trim. I used heat and bond to "sew" my pillow, I think it would have been so much faster to use a sewing machine but didn't want to drag myself over to my Gramma's to borrow hers....lesson learned. I cut the crown out with my Cricut and the Home Decor cart and used craft paint and a dauber thing to paint it. Not bad for 30 minutes!
