(diy tutorial) felt monogram nursery art

There must be something in the water because everyone I know is pregnant at the moment. This just gives me an excuse to get my craft on…and to avoid drinking the water. This baby shower gift idea is super easy and very cute, if I do say so myself. If you know what the nursery theme will be, you can coordinate the scrapbook paper and felt colors accordingly. This particular felt monogram nursery art is being sent to California to help welcome baby Leo to the world (via home birth). His pop was a best man in our wedding and a longtime friend of my husband. Congrats to the expecting parents!

Step 2: You can make your own letter stencil by typing out your favorite block letter font onto a word document, and then print the letter out on card stock and cut it out. Using the marker, trace the letter stencil to the backside of the felt. Cut out the felt letter.
