I found these really cool 18-inch wood letters at my local craft store, and then I knew.
I did a Washi Tape Monogram Letter for one of my other daughters several months ago and had been meaning to do some for my other two daughters that share a room. I thought that design would look awesome on these big letters. I thought about painting it like Kenz had done her wall but decided instead to use paper and Mod Podge it on.

How to Make Geometric Monogram Letter
This was the long part of the process. I started by cutting all the sheets into 1 1/2 inch squares.
When I had all the squares I cut them in half into triangles.
Whew! That was a lot of cutting! The next step was prepping my wood letters. I used spray paint along the sides of the letters.
They are already starting to look awesome! Here they are with the paint on the edges. I might have gotten it all over my hands too, but that I the price you pay when you are crafting.
While I was mapping this out in my mind I decided to draw a line across the center that I could use as my guide.
As I applied the triangles I realized this really wasn’t necessary. Besides, I didn’t even think about using the correct angle so the line was off after the first row. The triangles really keep themselves in line.
To apply the triangles I simply used Mod Podge. With a foam brush, apply a thin layer and then stick the triangles on. You don’t want to use too much because the paper will wrinkle before it is even dry. Also only apply Mod Podge to a small area at a time. Otherwise, it will dry before you get to it.
I found the easiest way was to go row by row.
I started on the bottom left of the M, and then when it came to the middle where the letter went all the way across I did a couple rows and then down the right side. I did this to keep my rows straight. I didn’t want to work on both sides and then have them not line up when they met in the middle.
The letter is completely covered in LOTS of little triangles. Isn’t that a cool geometric design?
