DIY Sprinkle Monogram

Technically a Monogram is a motif made by overlapping or combining two or more letters or other graphemes to form one symbol.  (courtesy of wikipedia) 

Well Tomatoes, tomahtoes!

I only used one letter but I’m still calling it a sprinkle ‘monogram.’  😎

So anyway… It’s Craft Time!!  We made this cute little “B” which was used as a personalized decoration on the sweets table at Belle’s 5th birthday party.  It was such a fun and simple project to make only requiring a handful of supplies, and it turned out really cute!  I let my daughter do most of it on her own since #1. she’s little miss independent, #2. for her age she’s getting good at this kind of stuff, and #3. it was for her birthday party.  I guess she’s her own creative individual now. 🙂

“The creative adult is the child who has survived.”

*Whew* I made it!  Hopefully she does too…

While gathering supplies, make sure to purchase a letter that has a porous surface so the decoupage sticks really well.  I found this cardboard “B” on clearance at Target for $1.47 and it worked perfectly!  You can find similar letters at Hobby Lobby or Michael’s any day of the week.  Don’t forget the 40% off coupon!

To make the letter begin by lining a tray with wax or parchment paper.  Apply a thick coat of decoupage to the letter, adding sprinkles as you go.  After it’s dry you can spray the entire thing with spray adhesive if you really want to seal the deal and eliminate any sprinkles from falling off.

That’s it, it’s really that simple!  We had 1/2 a bottle of sprinkles left over which was also nice. 🙂

If you use nonpareil sprinkles make sure to contain them in a tray or baking sheet.  They will roll EVERYWHERE!!

Side note!  This would be a really cute decoration if you were having a “Baby Sprinkle Shower.”  For those of you unfamiliar with this newer trend, it’s a celebration held to celebrate a second or later child, often times a smaller version of a ‘baby shower.’  So if you get an invitation in the mail for a “baby sprinkle” now you know what it is. 🙂

Little “B” was one of the cute decorations on Belle’s sweets table and now it’s hanging in her room as wall art.  I guess it served a dual purpose too!

I love music, art, interior design, gardening, baking, cooking, creating and hobby farming. I'm married to the best husband, Jason. It's safe to say we're opposites in many ways, but get along GREAT. We have two very intelligent and loving children, Owen (10) and Belle (4). I come from a huge family with three brothers, one sister and about a thousand others in the extended version.
