Plastered monogram


I have gotten emails about the plaster mantel “U” shown in our home tour, so I thought it would be fun to share with you how I made it. Plastering letters and shapes is incredibly easy and can be used for party decor (they are especially sweet for weddings) and afterwards can be hung at home.The entire process takes less than 10 minutes and then you just let it dry! See the full tutorial and my tips for finding great molds over at Project Wedding.

PS. See more of the mantel “U” here (which actually stands for nothing, I just liked the letter:).

    That’s so pretty. I’d love to make one. We’re trying to actually settle in and have some sort of a grown-up apartment. This is something we might be able to handle, and I’m a huge monogram fan.

    I can’t get over how perfect this is.
