DIY Ombre Button Monogram

By:

This fun DIY Ombre Button Monogram from Lelanie Denso is a great way to decorate a little girl or boy's room.  Made with felt and a variety of buttons, this is a quick and easy project that's great for using up fabric scraps and your favorite colored buttons.

Button Monogram

Materials:

  • Felt or fabric pieces (with different shades that will give an ombre effect)
  • Embroidery hoop (I used one with 17 cm. diameter)
  • Buttons of different sizes
  • Elastic ruffled trim (or any other trimming)
  • Fabric glue/hot glue or any other strong glue
  • Sewing machine

 

Instructions:

  1. First, cut the felt (I used 4) into 5.5 cms If you use more felt pieces/colors, then you will have to adjust the measurement. I mased this measurement on the 17 cms (diameter) embroidery hoop which I used for this project.

  2. Join the felt pieces by sewing them together 1/8" away from the seam. If you don't have a sewing machine, use fabric glue or any other stronger glue to attach the felt pieces together.

  3. Now, we have one felt piece with ombre effect. Pretty!

  4. Fit the felt in the embroidery hoop. Cut excess felt. I left 1/2" so I could glue it to the hoop using hot glue.

  5. I traced a nice letter A (my daughter's initial) on a felt piece and cut it.

  6. Glue the monogram to the felt in the hoop and glue on the felt monogram buttons of different sizes to fill the letter A.

  7. I used buttons of different sizes and shades. I even used small rose beads to fill smaller spaces.
     
  8. I glued an elastic ruffled gingham trim on the hoop.

  11. It was so easy, quick and fun to make!
