DIY Monogram Plaque Tutorial

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share with you my super cute DIY Monogram Plaque:


Ok, on to how you make it!  First I bought a wood plaque and a letter:


Next find some cute tissue paper and cut it roughly in the shape of your letter:


The next step is to put some Mod Podge on the wood and then put on the tissue paper and smooth out the wrinkles.  The letter C has 2 layers of the light blue tissue paper.  


When my sister in law Amanda and I saw the plaque we knew that we wanted to tone down the stripes a little bit.  To do that we added a layer of light blue to the striped tissue paper:


Once dry, hot glue the letter to the plaque.  Here is a close up:


Here's one more view of my Monogram Plaque:


I think that this would be darling on a shelf, or hanging on a wall with a bunch of pictures!  What do you think?
