Decorative burlap monogram


A decorative monogram letter is the perfect accessory for my new home. I love to create beautiful art and craft projects like this to place on tables or hang on doors.

Decorative monogram letter with Smoothfoam by Angela Holt



Smoothfoam Scrapbook Page Mount – 12″ x 12″ x 5/8″
Silhouette Cameo (die-cutting machine)
Hot glue gun
Craft glue
Craft knife
Straight pins
Burlap fabric
Floral vine embellishments – Prima Engraver Collection
Beaded wire trim
Lace and fabric flower (mine is handmade)


1.  Cut your desired monogram letter from cardstock using the Silhouette (or other die-cutting system or template) to the desired size – mine is just a little smaller than 10″ x 12″.

2.  Trace around the template on to the Smoothfoam sheet and then cut the letter out of the foam with a craft knife. Glue the cardstock template to the back of the Smoothfoam letter for a little added support; allow to dry

3.  Wrap and adhere burlap fabric around the letter with craft glue, securing the edges of the fabric to the back with straight pins as needed until the glue dries.

4.  Use hot glue to add beaded trim, vine and flower in position as desired. Personalize your decorative monogram letter with your own favorite fabrics and embellishments!
