Today’s post is all about the cute grain sack look. I may have an obsession with all things vintage and I love to replicate vintage as well! I love the combination of old and new so I paired this grain sack monogram with an old, chippy vintage window and simply love the outcome. Read on for how easy it is to make your own!
- Monogram letter
- Ice Blue Americana acrylic paint
- White Wash Americana acrylic paint
- 1 brush, foam or bristle
- Painters tape
- Command Strips to hang
First you’ll need to use your 40% off coupon to shop JoAnn’s. All hobby stores have monograms but JoAnn’s has these exact giant letters that are lightweight paper mâché and they’re very inexpensive when you use your coupon.
Next, tape 2 lines down one side of your letter. This was easy since my last name is an M…I can see how a C or Z would be a little tricky! (; I eyeballed the tape when I lined it up until it looked even.
Next I painted inside the tape Ice Blue.
Look at that crisp line, love it!
You’re going to repeat the last step two more times, once the first color dries. I taped my second blue line next, just moving the tape over a good inch and a half to leave room for the small white pinstripe in between the two blues.
The paint dries really quickly on paper mache so this was a really fast project!
Repeat the white stripe to get that grain sack feel and you’re done!
Display in your vintage window, frame or just on the wall solo. (This is hung with Command Strips for stability.)
You could even stand it against the wall on your mantel, hang it above your bed or etc. Wherever you decide to home it, it will be adorable!
