Wooden Letter “H” Monogram Craft

Create a personal and unique gift for someone by sawing out their initials and decorating them. This project is an example of how you could embellish the letter ”H”. Have fun with your scrapbook papers and other items you may have in your stash to make it special and one of a kind.



Wooden H Monogram

For this monogram we used:

- wood, 18 mm thick
- scroll saw or jig saw
- sandpaper
- Window’s font “Victorian LET”, letter H
- white acrylic paint
- paint brushes
- scrapbook paper in color of choice
- white cardstock
- white thick stiff cardboard or chipboard
- Sizzix Big Shot or other die cutting machine
- Sizzix Originals dies: Bird with Wing and Flower Layers #3
- 4 clear acrylic half beads
- button matching paper
- jewel glue
- craft glue
- button to match motif
- embossing folder of choice to emboss paper
- decoupage glue
- pencil for tracing


1. Print out the letter “H” to fit your printer paper (or size of choice) and then transfer the outline onto your wood. Saw out the letter and then sand it smooth.
2. Place the front side of the letter on the backside of scrapbook paper and trace the letter onto the paper. Cut the letter out and set aside for the meantime.
3. Paint 2 coats of white paint on all sides of the monogram, letting it dry between coats. Once the second coat of paint is completely dry, use decoupage glue and adhere the paper letter to the front side of the wooden monogram. Press out any air bubbles while the decoupage glue is still wet. Let it completly dry before continuing.
4. While you are waiting, you can prepare the motifs that will embellish the monogram. First die cut each motif once out of chipboard and each motif twice out of the white cardstock. You are die cutting twice out of the cardstock, so you can cover both sides of the motifs. Now decide for the front side which motifs should be embossed and then emboss the selected pieces.. Afterwards adhere the white cardstock motifs onto the appropriate chipboard motifs. Glue an eye on the bird and a button onto the flower, if you like. Once you have done than, set these aside until later.
5. Now back to the monogram. Now that the glue has dried you can dry brush the edges with white paint. Let this dry, which should only take a short time. Afterwards, paint another coat of Modge Podge over the entire front side and let it dry.
6. Finally once everything is dry, you can adhere the bird and flowers onto the monogram. Use craft glue to do this.
7. Last but not least, adhere 3 clear acrylic beads to the lower left side of the “H”.
