Make Outer Edge of Circle
Once you have your mat, select two round objects that are different sizes. For this project we used a dinner plate and a salad plate. Trace the larger circle with a permanent marker.
Complete Inner Edge of Circle
Use the smaller plate or bowl to then trace the inner circle.
Next, print an initial in a font of your choice. Do an online search for the letter you want and find a font that works for the project. Use photo editing software to enlarge the image so it just fits within the circle. Another option is to print a letter on your computer and enlarge it on the copier. Once you’ve got the template sized to your liking, cut it out.
Measure the center of the circle and place the letter in the correct spot.
Trace Initial Onto Mat
Trace the letter with the permanent marker.
Fill In Circle and Initial
Using black craft paint and a small brush, fill in the circle and monogram.
