DIY Painted Letter

Lately I have been trying to re-decorate my apartment. But since I’m on a budget, a lot of it has been DIY projects.

My parents bought me white floating shelves for Christmas that I really need to fill up. So I decided to paint an H (my boyfriend and I both have last names that start with H, lucky right?) to put on them! This DIY project is SUPER easy and also fun to do, and it was all under $10!

Things you will need:
– Letter of your choice (I found mine at Target, but they also have them at Michael’s)
– Acrylic paint, color of your choice (I used a gray/silver color to match my living room)
– Paint brushes
– Ribbon, print or color of your choice (I chose a burlap one I found at Target)
