2" insulating foam (available at home improvement centers)
printout of desired letter
large bread knife or jigsaw
hook-and-loop sticky-back tabs
1. Print a monogram letter as large as possible and have a copy shop print the letter to the desired size (featured project is 30x30). Cut out the letter.
2. While outside, spray the back with adhesive and allow to sit for five minutes. Attach the letter to the foam. Cut around letter with a bread knife or a jigsaw. If letter has internal loops, cut those first. Remove printed letter from foam.
3. Use floral pins to apply reindeer moss in large, medium and small clumps until the top and sides are covered. If an area needs to be thicker, use foam glue and pins to secure the moss.
4. Apply tabs to back side of foam. Remove liners and press the monogram to the wall.
