DIY Sunday: Monogrammed Ceramic Tile Wall Art


Happy Mother's Day!  It's been a crazy busy weekend.  I was the personal attendant in a good friend's wedding so I've been fluffing dresses, holding purses, running errands, getting out stains, climbing in and out of cars, taking pictures, holding drinks, you get the idea.

Everything went off without a hitch, it was beautiful.

Today we are heading to my Grandma's house with other family for a good 'ole fashioned summer barbecue. It should be fun and filling and with the weather being absolutely gorgeous today, I'm sure we'll spend most of it outside.


So, this is what I gave the bride and groom.  Their last name (obviously) beings with a "T", so I crafted a cute little piece of wall art for their home.  I used the colors in her kitchen and family area for the design and just went with it!

You will need:

  • Wooden board
  • Spray paint
  • Ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  • Mini ceramic tiles (found mine at Michael's)
  • Drill
This project is pretty self-explanatory.  Have the husband, or if you are handy, yourself, drill two holes near the top of the board, so that the ribbon will eventually be threaded through.  Spray paint both sides and let dry.  Arrange tiles into the letter you want and carefully hot glue all tiles to the board.  Let dry.  Then feed ribbon through and tie into a bow so the board has room to hang.

Make sense?



The ideas and possibilities are endless with this craft project.  You could use just about anything to stencil out the letter - buttons, bottle caps, rocks, what have you!

Made anything crafty lately?

  3. Oh, I love this!! Whenever we take a trip to Home Depot (quite often with the new house and all...) I always find myself mesmerized in front of all the pretty accent tiles with their fantastic colors. Of course I don't want to redo a kitchen or bathroom- but I could handle a little craft with them! :)

  4. I wish I was crafty, but I am not - however my daughter is - she's addicted to craftgawker.com!

    Hope you had a great Momma Day - and I would still do WW if you want to, I mean it helped me the first time lose 70 pounds - maybe I am just bored with counting the points?
