This simple DIY is all about making something individualized and colorful for your home. Using glass pebbles a wooden letter, and a few things you probably having lying around your house, we’re going to create a stylish initial to liven up any bare wall.
Okay, so here we go. All you need is the letter of your choice, glue (a hot glue gun worked great, available at any craft store), a wooden frame (it’s optional but this one came from Dahlia’s Flowers) and glass pebbles (or gems, marbles, fish tank decorations. You know what I’m talking about, right?). Keep in mind the color of your letter when choosing the color of your pebbles. Since they are slightly see through your background color will make a difference.
- Buy supplies.
- Arrange pebbles on your letter to suit your taste. Remove row of pebbles from your letter and glue them back into place one or two at a time. Continue to fill in the entire letter, section by section, until complete.
- Allow a few minutes for the last pebbles to dry before hanging.
- If you want to hang a bare frame around your letter you would do that now otherwise you’re finished. Yay!
- Stand back and admire your creative and inexpensive piece of art!
This DIY Monogram wall art would make a great baby gift for new parents.

How cute and easy to do!
I love that it’s so easy to do! I think it came out great and I would love to make one, too!
Very very cute!!! Perfect for Isa’s room! This is a project that her and I can do together.
That’s a great idea!!
I really like it. I may have to try it with my kids, they’d have fun making one!
So cute! I thought about doing something like this for when I change my daughters room around
Very cute! You’ve got me thinking creative now.
Very cute. I like to put my son’s initial on his wall in his room. I think I have it in there about 4 times!
I like personalized art like these letters. It’s fun when you make it yourself to, makes it even better.
This turned out super cute and is totally doable.
Adorable result Ashley! Love it 😉
This is gorgeous! I need to give this a try for my son’s room now that we are redecorating his room. This would also be great in my husband’s office.
I love the way this turned out! Stephanie did an excellent job!
She sure did!
That turned out beautiful! It looks like something you would buy, not that you made yourself. Great job!
That’s so cute and so easy too! I have a ton of antique buttons I’ve collected over the years, I could totally do this!
Oooh, I bet it would be cute with old buttons! I love antique buttons too. I keep a jar full of them in my desk to look at when I’m trying to think. ….Now that I say that “out loud” I see how weird that is! lol
This is really cute! I love crafts, but for some reason don’t collect buttons. I need to get some and explore my creative side.
You wouldn’t have to use buttons, you could use the store bought pebbles like Stephanie did…or you could buy craft buttons I guess. Thanks for your comment!
So beautiful. I love the colored glass on the E. It would be a great idea to give as gifts.
This is so cute! I love that it’s something I can easily do at home.
I love the way you worked with the colors in that. It looks fantastic!
I really like the 3D texture. I see flat prints all the time, but never thought to make one that pops like that. Great idea!
What a great idea! And a fabulous gift for a new baby/mom!
I absolutely love this and am adding it to my list to make for my daughter’s new room. She will be thrilled!!
Oh, gosh, I love that! Definitely pinning to make later; I can see a lot of places I’d like to hang something like this (and people I’d like to make them for as gifts).
This is so cute! I want one for our living room!
Love this gonna try this this week.
