Add Registration Marks and Place Stencils

To make lining up the stencils easier, add small pieces of painter's tape to the approximate centers of the frame's top, bottom and sides. Use a ruler to determine the exact center then mark it to create registration marks that will help you line up the letter stencils. Depending on the size of your frame, you can either eyeball the stencil's placement or use the ruler to ensure they are evenly spaced.

Create Monogram

Once stencils are in position, firmly press down on each one to ensure they are well adhered. Fill in each letter with a permanent marker, being careful not to push the pen's tip under the stencil's edges (Image 1). Carefully remove stencils by peeling them up (Image 2).

Clean Stencils and Add Felt Pads

Using paper towels and rubbing alcohol, gently clean stencils front and back (Image 1). Note: The permanent marker may stain the inside area of each stencil, but don't worry because it won't transfer to future projects. To protect furniture from scratches, flip frame over and add felt pads to each of the four corners (Image 2).
