Monogram “A” Rose

So from the beginning, Alivya’s Nursery has been ultra sweet and feminine..using the softer side of the color pallete…soft lavender, garden greens and whites were the jumping off points. I added  roses and hydrangeas( my all time favorite combo)  to add to the softness of the room and anything shabby and sweet I found that would fit her little room. Well when I saw this and this….go ahead take a look, I’ll wait….

(yup I know RIGHT!  SAAAWEEET!!!!! ) I knew I wanted some in her room as well:0)

I just ordered some monogram dresses with miss things initials because it just sooo classy:0)

( Restoration Hardware Baby and Child has a small clothing line and the quality is AMAZING!!!! Nice thick cotton:0)

I love using initials while decorating so I decided to fuse the two ideas and make a rose monogram a for her door….


To start I picked up a piece of 12×12 Styrofoam from Joann’s for half off thanks to a coupon. Then, with the plastic still on I free handed a lowercase a and then took  a pen and poked along the lines until it formed an a on the foam piece. After that I took a kitchen knife and cut out the a:0) It did crack in one place, but I blame that on my super speed….lol…but nothing a little glue didn’t fix.


Then I started on the roses…which were really easy! I just sat and watched a movie with the Mr. and whipped up about 50 of them in no time! You can find the tutorial HERE!!!
