Simple Monogram

I have seen these huge monograms in lots of people's houses. Some people Mod Podge them with scrapbook paper or attach flowers and embellishments. But my friend has one in her kitchen that she just painted plain black and hung on the wall. It is really eye-catching and looks so simple yet so cute. So I decided to do what I do best- copy her idea!
These big letters are almost 2 feet tall and are found at Joann's. I bought one a while ago, and for the longest time, just had it hung on my wall as is. I was trying to get a feel for having a huge S on my wall. In fact, I didn't think I liked it, until I painted it black and added just a few ribbons. I really like the finished result! It'll look even better when my walls get painted...

  2. I have the coolest idea for something very similar! How much did the letters run you?

  3. I think that they are about $7 if I remember right. But you can use a 40% off coupon too.
