Get creative and be inspired to make this easy Monogram Shadow Box. Made with a fabric tape, a wooden letter and faux florals, it’s a fun craft for your own home or a great gift. For my use, it’s perfect for a little girl’s room.
A lot of what I do involves creativity – coming up with a new DIY project, recipe or idea for a blog post. I like to think that creativity should be inspired by something, whether a message, an emotion, a person or a thing. My daughters were the inspiration for many of the framed digital art that is in their room. It’s all DIY and done with them in mind. They are my inspiration. The things I want them to believe and be inspired by help my creativity.
Creativity is important – and so is hydration. My new favorite water that helps fuel my creativity (and the ability to work hard) is LIFEWTR. I conveniently stock up on LIFEWTR at 7-Eleven so that I have enough to last me the entire week. You can find LIFEWTR in the refrigerated aisle at your local 7-Eleven, which is one of the most convenient places to drop in for something!
This LIFEWTR bottle, in particular, really inspired a new DIY project for a monogram shadow box. The different lines and colors made me think of using washi or fabric tape to get a similar effect on a wooden letter.
I decided on using a shadow box to give it some focus and make it easier to stand on the night table by my twin daughters’ beds. (I did make one for both girls, but I’m just showing you the “E” today!) The process is pretty simple!
MONOGRAM SHADOW BOX
What You’ll Need:
Shadow Box Frame
Tacky Glue or Permanent Glue Dots (preferred)
Using strips of the fabric tape, apply on the wooden letter on a diagonal. You may need to cut away some to fold into the corners, but this is fairly easy to do.
Keep applying until you’ve filled the entire letter. Don’t worry about the backside, but make sure the tape extends over the sides for a finished look.
Open the shadow box and decide placement for items.
I like to use the permanent glue dots as they are very strong and will even hold the letter place. Fill in around the letter with decorative accents like faux flowers and/or strips of the fabric tape.
LIFEWTR was my fuel during this creative project. Every single drop of LIFEWTR is purified and pH balanced, with electrolytes for taste. It’s my daily companion these days! A go-to for work, taking with me on-the-go, the gym and even when I’m just relaxing as a great way to refresh my mind. LIFEWTR inspires me to find new inspiration and ignite creativity from that.
I hope that you are inspired to create your own Monogram Shadow Box – and maybe put your own personal touch on your own project. You can visit 7-Eleven to pick up LIFEWTR. What do you love to create?
