Painted Modern Monogram Pillow

Heather from Southern State of Mind loves Jonathan Adler’s “chic-meets-cheeky-meets-trendy-meets-vintage” style and was immediately smitten with his signature needlepoint pillows. Instead of dishing out $125 or taking up needlepointing, Heather turned to her old faithful friend paint to make a modern monogrammed pillow. All it cost Heather was 30 minutes of her time since she already had all the materials on hand.

The trend of incorporating letters into décor is still going strong, and you can pretty much find decorative letters in any style imaginable. Lele from Just Showed Up made these pretty fabric letters by simply padding craft store letters with Fiberfill and then wrapping them with fabric. I love the possibilities here since there are so many gorgeous fabrics out there. How fun is Lele’s combination of colors and prints?

Initial Tote Bag with Rubber Bottom

DIY initial tote bag with plasti dip bottom inspired by West Elm

The crafty momma over at Henry Happened shares how she created a cute, yet durable, bag that’s perfect for summer adventures. The secret to the bag’s durability is the use of Plasti Dip, which created a thick, rubber-like coating on the bottom of a craft store bag. Beside from the fact that the bag is just adorable, I love the idea of being able to plop it on the ground while outside without any worries of dirt stains!

Personalized Step Stool

With two young children, I can attest to the fact that a stool is a necessity in the bathroom and can also be helpful if you’ve a little chef in the kitchen. While plastic stools get the job done, they just aren’t nearly as pleasing to the eye as a personalized wood stool like this one from Jaime at That’s My Letter. Jaime followed plans from Ana White to build her stool for next to nothing using scraps she had on hand. The hand painted personalization is just the icing on the cake!

I may not be a coffee drinker, but I can still appreciate a pretty mug when I see one! Janel from Nellie Bellie put her artistry to work by handpainting this ceramic mug for a special friend’s birthday. Janel doodled away on the plain white mug with ceramic paint markers to take it from drab to fab!

When Jill from Create.Craft.Love laid eyes on some monogrammed glass Easter egg ornaments, she knew it was time to break out the etching cream. Jill created an initial stencil with her Silhouette, adhered it to her glass egg ornament, and then applied the etching cream. Ten minutes later Jill rinsed it off and had a simple and elegant take on the classic Easter egg!

Mary from At Home on the Bay is a lady who loves artwork. Combine artwork AND letters, and she’s hooked! Mary made these artistic letters by covering paper mache letters with “paintings” printed on fabric. Even with purchasing several materials, Mary still made all five letters for only $20. I love this fun and fresh take on the typography trend!
