Easy Sharpie Monogram Art

Easy Sharpie Monogram Art

A couple of weeks ago I re-painted my son’s room and a few pieces of his furniture.  His room is getting a long overdue makeover.  

When we put everything back in his room after painting and purging some of his stuff, it became clear that I would need to make some new artwork for his walls.  And, as always, I wanted something inexpensive.  That meant that I would be making things myself.  Of course, after all that painting I wanted something quick and easy.

Hello Sharpie markers and a burlap canvas!  It was so easy to make a monogram with a Sharpie pen:

I bought my burlap canvas and wooden letter at Michaels and everything else I already had at home.  The canvases came in a 3-pack for about $20 (and I used a coupon so it they were about $12 for 3) and the letter was about a dollar so the cost for my Sharpie monogram art project was around $5 — love that!

Project materials:

  • burlap canvas
  • wooden letter
  • sharpie markers
  • empty frame

  • Trace letter with a pencil
  • Trace pencil lines with a Sharpie marker (I used two colors to give the letter more depth and dimension)

How easy is that, right?!

I love how the burlap adds a little rustic texture to his room and I think it will look great in a grouping or collage.  I think it even looks good just leaning against the wall while waiting for its new home.

His room isn’t quite finished yet but we are getting there.  When I’m done I will do a full reveal on my blog, Lilacs & Longhorns.
