Crafternoon: Nautical Flags Name & Monogram

A few days ago I gave y'all a peek into my room! I featured my DIY wall, which you can see above! While I'm not very good at most crafty things, I did come up with this project on my own!

I bought these canvases when I did my rhinestone project and two came in a pack. One was used in the rhinestone monogram and the other sat around untouched for a few months. After the inordinate amount of patience necessary for that rhinestone monogram, I was CRAFTED OUT. I was inspired when my roommate painted her cooler (final product coming this week!) and I wanted to do something too!

Using nautical flags, I painted that canvas in the color scheme of my bedding. I used these flags for reference:

The top line of my canvas is my name: K-A-T-I-E
The bottom line is my monogram: c-R-a

Since Katie is with a K, and I always do my monogram with Catherine, my "real" first name, it created some interest and is about as close to a conversation piece I could come up with!

At the time, my roommate and I couldn't find a ruler if our lives depended on it, so I used index cards to measure out my flags! Hee-hee!

If you're feeling crafty, this is a great project to try! It was easy and fun and I'm sure if you're an avid crafter, you've probably got everything you have in your craft closet!

Love both of your crafts! I'm not crafty at all, but yours look great!

I really want to try using the nautical flags to spell out my name! That's such a neat idea! :)
