Personalized DIY Decor Ideas for Your Home

Your home should reflect your personal style, and it should showcase that you are proud of who you are. One of the best ways to display the true you is with monogrammed DIY decor. This type of decor is a wonderful way to show that you are proud of yourself and the people who live with you, and creating DIY monogrammed decor adds an extra element of personalization to the process.

These personalized DIY decor ideas can be incorporated into any room in your home:

Button Monogram Wall Art

If you are searching for a personalized DIY project that is fun, colorful and cute, then the button monogram wall art project is the best option for you. This project can be completed using a piece of sturdy cardstock, glue and a pile of extra buttons in the color that you prefer. Trace the letter that you want to use on the paper and fill in the space with layers of buttons. This wall art would work well in a child's room or a playroom.

Wooden Letter Sculpture

If you are interested in creating classic and timeless monogrammed art, then a wooden letter sculpture is a great option. Using an extra piece of wood, use your favorite power tools to carve out the letter or letters that you want to display. Some people prefer the first letter of their last name, while others use the first letter of each person's name in the household. Once you are done carving, you can sand and stain the wood before displaying the new piece on your mantle.

DIY Marquee Letter

For a brighter, more vibrant take on personalized home decor, consider creating your own DIY marquee letter. This project requires you to have a large piece of metal on hand that can be cut into the letter of your preference. Then, you will need to drill holes at even intervals in the letter so that you can install light bulbs onto it. When the project is complete, your letter will glow with pride on your wall.

Personalized Glass Block Decor

You can transform old glass blocks into personalized night lights in a matter of hours. Simply take an empty glass block, drill a hole in it and fill it with a string of multicolored lights. Then, you can cut a design out of vinyl that will be adhered to the outside of the glass block. Many people opt to use a name, nickname, sports team or monogram for this fun project.

Photo Letter Wall Art

Letter wall art is particularly popular but if you are looking for a more unique approach to this design style, you may want to consider the photo letter wall art project. This project allows you to display your personal snapshots on a monogram letter. The materials that you will need are a large cardboard or wooden letter, decoupage glue and small copies of your favorite photographs. Some people choose black and white photographs for this project, but color photographs also would work well. Decoupage the photos onto the letter and when it dries, hang it on the wall to tell the story of your family.

Monogrammed DIY decor is a tasteful way to add a subtle hint of personalization to your home decor. From your entryway to your dining room and into your bedroom, monogrammed decor can allow you to make your own mark on your home in a way that is both elegant and modern.

I love the ocean, sand and sunshine! That's why I call Hilton Head Island/Bluffton my home! I relocated to Hilton Head Island over 20 years ago from North Carolina after graduating from East Carolina University - Go Pirates! I continue to be successful in real estate for the past 13 Years and with my experience working with top resorts and gated communities, I have cultivated attention to detail, understand the importance of listening first and have the positive "Can Do" attitude in all situations. I offer my sellers and buyers the BEST advice to achieve their real estate goals. I enjoy spending time with my family boating on the May River, attending festivals along Old Town Bluffton and building sandcastles on HHI beaches.  

"Nancy Brenseke is the type of realtor that everyone should contract to sell their property. She is very knowledgeable and gave us valuable information when listing the townhome. The whole process went smoothly and Nancy was responsible for that. She always communicated with us which kept us confident that all aspects of the closing were under control and on track. I highly recommend Nancy Brenseke." ~ Deb Bluffton, SC

"Nancy went the extra mile on everything around selling the condo. I would use her again and would recommend her to anyone I come in contact with. Our condo sold in 1 day! She was excellent and hardworker. She helped in all aspects of selling, from marketing with great number of pictures, to home inspection with helping us find contractors to fix the inspection issue so were were able to close."
