I found a still life monogram on the Anthropologie website and knew I had to knock it off. They are so simple yet have a price tag of $48 each. I knew that I could come up with a copy cat DIY monogram that would be way less. Here is my version of the Still Life Monograms.
The Anthropologie originals have various still life scenes on them and are about 18″ high. My version is only 12 inches high but you can control the scene that is on the front and personalize them to your taste.
- 12 inch Paper Mache Letters
- Scrapbooking Paper (I used the Royal Garden Stack from DCWV)
- Mod Podge
- Craft Knife
- Craft Paint in your choice of color
First paint your sides in the craft paint color of your choice. I used a green glitter paint on the “R” and just plain white on the “H”.
Turn your letter upside down on the BACK of your paper. (Please place a non-cut mat or old magazines under your paper to protect your work surface.) Use your craft knife to carefully cut all the way around your letter.
I hope you will make your own knock off of the Anthropologie originals. You can make a still life monogram letter for every person in your family. I made both of these letters for under $20 total and I have plenty of paper left to make many more monograms. So yes, you can have that catalog look for a fraction of the price. Just grab your supplies and start on your own Still Life Monogram!
