I have always loved giving wedding presents that are personal, and a “home established” sign has been a favorite of mine forever. I also love the simplicity and elegance of using burlap and simple black lettering, which is why I decided to share with you today the steps to making a simple but meaningful monogram wedding gift..
This is such an easy project that you will find yourself making them for every wedding or anniversary that you attend!
Here are the supplies that you will need: a piece of fabric (I used burlap), freezer paper, scissors or a rotary cutter, ruler, iron, computer, printer and picture frame.
I cut out the freezer paper to letter size 8 1/2 by 11 inches.
Then I cut out the fabric the same dimensions.
Press the shiny side of the freezer paper to the fabric to give it stability. I used a hot iron and iron on the paper size.
I put the freezer backed fabric upside down in my printer tray.
This is where you have to play around with fonts, letter size, positioning. I used Academy Engraved LET font and entered 440 in the size box for the initial because I wanted it to be fairly large and set it to center on the paper. I then printed it.
I reinserted the fabric in the printer upside down and set the last name size to 55 and est. and date to size 36 on my computer after deleting the initial. I spaced down on the page and reprinted.
I left the freezer paper on the back of the fabric, trimmed up the edges and placed in a frame I found at Jo-Anns, without the glass.
Voila!! A beautiful, personal gift.
