When I first saw the picture of this oversized monogram by Diane at In My Own Style, I eagerly scrolled down the post, dying to know her dollar store secrets!  Would you believe that this huge monogram was cut out of foam core board?  Would you believe that it was easy?  The process gets slightly tech-y (she created her design on the computer using image editing software) but it’s fairly basic and her instructions are clear and easy to follow.  (We see some of you doubting your tech skills.  Don’t be afraid!)  And once you’ve created the pattern for your monogram, you can use it over and over again to personalize future projects as well!  [how to make an oversized monogram]

Project estimate:

  • Computer, on hand
  • Monogram enlargement, about $2
  • Foam core board, $1

Total:  about $3
