Did you know that you could sometimes get décor for free? That’s how I ended up with this big letter S. My daughter brought it home from the store where she worked. It was left over from a store display. She said they save things like that for people all the time if they ask. Good to know! 😉
She used it for several projects, and was done with it, so I decided to give it new life. I pictured it wrapped with jute twine, and I am loving the way it turned out.
You may not have a giant letter lying around your house, but for about $4, you can make one. You can get the only supplies you need from your local dollar store*. Here’s all you need to make one of these adorable monograms:
*By dollar store, I mean Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Family Dollar, etc. The twine at the Dollar Tree is on very small rolls, so I would get it from one of the other stores. If you can’t find the items at these stores, they are available at Wal-Mart, for slightly more.
*When your jute ends, just tape it down and start with a new piece, securing with tape.
Even though the letter is made of foam board, it looks like white painted wood, so I don’t mind that some of it shows. I like the nautical look of it.
