$20 Monogram Wall Art

For over a year now, I’ve had this particular project in mind. I wanted an ornate frame surrounding our last initial set on burlap. The problem was, I couldn’t find a frame I liked. Every time I went to a store I checked the frame and wall art section. I did find a frame that would’ve been perfect at one home goods store, but it was over $100! I became a little frustrated and the search took a backseat.

Recently I went to our local Walmart to check out Better Homes and Gardens’ new line of home products I saw featured in their magazine. Then, I found the perfect frame! It was a mirror, it was plastic, and it was $15! I stood there in the aisle admiring it from near, from afar, and I would not have known it was plastic had I not picked it up. Sold!

I purchased the mirror and one yard of burlap from Walmart’s craft/fabric section for $2 and was on my way! Next stop, Michael’s for a $2 wooden letter M.

All I did to make it was take the mirror out of the frame and wrap it with burlap. Then put the frame back together. Next, my wonderful husband spray painted the letter M with Krylon’s Catalina Mist. Finally, I used hot glue to attach the letter.

It was so affordable, easy, and exactly what I wanted!
