Decoupage Framed Monogram

I have a problem. I'm constantly looking for things I can cover with a coat of Mod Podge. Luckily, my kids move way to fast for me to catch and no way could they hold still long enough to dry.



I came across this wooden "M" this weekend in Meg's sock drawer (go figure). I knew it would be much happier with a pretty piece of scrapbook paper glued to it. I also found the frame and figured why not paint one more thing with the apple green spray paint I used here and here.



Put the two together and I have a cute, personalized piece of art for Meg's bookshelves. I simply traced around the letter and cut it out. I then glued it onto the wooden letter. After removing the glass from the frame, I decoupaged a complementary paper onto the cardboard backing.



The wooden letter was a bit heavy, so I used gorilla glue to adhere it to the cardboard backing. Using a frame gives me the option of hanging the piece on the wall or standing it on one of her shelves. I also have a "D" and "K" for the boys. I can use them when the decoupage itch comes.
