Is anyone else out there as obsessed with faux fur right now as I am?
Faux fur has been EVERYWHERE this season. With faux fur vests really making its way into fashion this past winter and faux fur throws, pillows, slippers, photo frames, you name it, popping up in stores, it’s become pretty hard to resist the appeal cozy, soft-to-the-touch material.
While I’ve had to be told to put down and put away faux fur items I’d be holding and considering buying around Target and other stores (I’ve had to arrange for “no more faux fur” policing from my friends and family), I’ve still been finding ways to creatively use fur in my life.
After some experimenting, I thought that a faux fur monogram would be a fun, edgy, and trendy addition to a bedroom, gallery wall, or office space. It’s actually quite simple to make and really takes no time at all. With just a few supplies, you’ll be on your way to rocking a unique piece of decor in your space.
Faux Fur Monogram
- Paper Mache letter of your choice
- Faux fur from the craft store
- Fabric Scissors
- Pencil/pen for tracing
- Glue Gun
1. On the back/wrong side of the fabric, trace along the border of the paper mache letter.
2. Carefully cut along the traced letter on the fabric. Cut at an angle to make sure you are not cutting off the fringe of the fur. Otherwise the fur will really shed at the edges and look sparse. Just be mindful when cutting. You can even try cutting a 1/4″ or so from the traced markings to be sure you are cutting correctly.
3. Glue the fur to the letter using hot glue.
4. That’s it! Display wherever you desire!
