Monogram Art

Here is a simple and colorful way to make monogram wall art for your child's room:

These fluffy pom-poms bring me back to my childhood when I would glue them together into caterpillars or other little animals. Now Stella does the same! There is something about their bright colors and soft texture that makes them hard not to love.

I made an initial for each of my girls, but it would also look really neat if you spelled out a child's name on their bedroom wall!

How to Make Pom-Pom Monogram Art


1. Start by lightly drawing the letter on the canvas with a pencil and ruler. Then roughly lay out the pom-poms you want to use, varying the colors and sizes:

2. Use a dab of hot glue to secure each pom-pom in place. As you glue, you will want to position the pom-poms more closely together than when you initially laid them out. Just fill in the extra space with additional pom-poms:

3. Continue gluing on more pom-poms until you've filled out the letter, making sure to vary the sizes and colors throughout.

In less than 30 minutes and under $10 you can create a fun new piece of wall art!
