It seems like everyone likes to see something with their name, initial or monogram on it. So creating a custom monogram is a gift I would think would be perfect for neighbors, friends, teachers, mailmen or family. So grab a prefabbed letter and a stencil and getting creating with Stephanie from Somewhat Simple.

1. Paint: The color I used is from Martha Stewart and it is called "Surf".

2. Ready-Made Stencil (Unless you want it a solid color or if you are good at free-handing, which I am not!)
3. Roller Attachment or Paintbrush
4. Wood monogram: You can get these for $2 or $3 at Michaels or Hobby Lobby 5. Masking Tape
6. Ribbon
Creating this is EASY!
Tape down your stencil, paint your monogram, let it dry, pull off your stencil and admire your work!
