Funky Friday Feature: Giggles, Glitz & Glam

Hi everyone at Funky PolkaDot Giraffe! My name is Jana and I blog over at Giggles, Glitz & Glam as well as Thirty-One:10! I am so excited to share with you a really simple tutorial for a distressed monogram letter for your own home or to gift to someone else!

What You'll Need:

A wood cut out of the letter you want to make (I got mine for under $2 at Hobby Lobby)
A can of spray paint (mine was the cheapest one I think)
Sand paper (I used 120-grit)

I do my spray painting in the garage on an old box that I've flattened out. I always try to at least crack the garage for some fresh air.

Spray paint on a nice thick coat, I used black for this one. Be sure you get all the edges & wedges. Then you will have to let it dry for an hour or so before you flip it over.

Flip it over and spray paint the other side. Then let it dry for a couple hours to make sure everything is set in.

To finish it off, take your sand paper and rub off the edges of the letter to give it a rough distressed finished. (As seen below)

Cheap, yet cute way to decorate a monogrammed letter for your home or to use as a gift for a wedding or even a baby gift!

Did I mention I love spray paint?? I do & craft with it often so be sure to stop by my blog, Giggles, Glitz & Glam, to check it out!
