This month, I took a lovely mallard designed tissue box cover and turned it into a classic monogrammed tissue box cover.
I picked up this beauty at Goodwill for $1 during the last half-off Goodwill sale day.
And praise God that ship has sailed.
Anytime I see a mallard, I think of Bunny and Charlotte.
In the end, Charlotte prevails.
I’m sure Bunny would not approve of this makeover.
Good thing she’s fictional.
I started by giving the tissue box cover a couple coats of Rust-Oleum Heirloom White.
To dress it up a little, I added two strips of green Scotch Expressions tape along the bottom edge.
Y’all know, I had to have some green on there! But, you should be proud that I did resist putting any navy on it.
I used my new Silhouette Portrait to cut out the Ls for the monograms and adhered them on with Mod Podge.
If you don’t have a Silhouette, you can check out my DIY Monogram Tray to see how to make a monogram easily without one.
I decided to do a few different font types for the Ls.
Wait, I don’t think the word “classy” has ever been associated with me. Scratch that.
Tissue Box Cover – $1
Cardstock for the Ls – $0.50
Expressions Tape – Already had
Spray Paint – $4
Was it worth $5.50?
