DIY: Brought to you by the letter K

If you know me, you are probably aware that I am obsessed with monograms. Love them. Even our wedding centered around our monogram and typography...guess its a graphic design thing. And of course I adore anything Anthroplogie. Take a cute monogram and mix it with some Anthro and you have some serious lust going on over here. I've loved these oversized zinc letters for a while, but can't get behind the $98 price tag. For one letter. Yikes! Pinterest to the rescue again! Seriously, is there anything you can't find a tutorial for on Pinterest? Dog jacket? Check! Giant Backyard Scrabble? Check! How to breed camels? Check. Ok wait... I made that last one up.
But there really are too many great ideas to count. Here's my newest DIY fave:

 So how did I take my letter from this... (Paper mache "K" is $8 from JoAnn Fabrics)

To this? Check out this tutorial from Kristen F Davis Designs. Its easy peasy (and only cost me $10!!)


Pretty cute, huh?
