I am SOOOOO excited to share this project with you. My 3 1/2 year old twins recently moved into the same room (to make room for babies). I needed some fun wall art for above their beds. I needed it to coordinate, not be too girly or too boyish, and not be too expensive.
I had a really fun time creating this easy to do, monogram photo wall.
Step 1: Gather frames, photos and letters that coordinate with your bedding, pillows and other decor.
I found chipboard letters, wooden letters and metal letters. I rounded up frames that I already had and was about to give away. I also used Mod Podge to create a 8×10 photo canvas. Much less expensive than ordering a wrapped photo canvas. I wanted this to be very cute and very inexpensive because we weren’t sure how long A & B could last in the same room (we have already had many 4 am room parties and midnight roamers-but it is getting better! Hallelujah!) Step 2: Trace your letters and frames onto paper and cut out the patterns. Step 3: Use the paper letters and frames to move around and position your photo wall. I moved these patterns around several times until I found a good fit. You can’t really mess up-I found that there were a few different ways to place the letters and frames and they all looked great. Step 4: Hammer your nails in the correct spot on your paper pattern-so that all you have to do in remove the paper and hang your letters and photos on the nails. Step 5: Hang those photos and letters! I have to say, these photo walls were a huge hit with my kiddos. They loved having “their special letter” above their beds, as well as photos of themselves! Very cute and an inexpensive way to spruce up a child’s room.
It would also be fun to create a photo wall in your family room with family photos. I’d love to see photos of your Monogram photo walls!
