How to Make a Monogram Mat & Frame
A Monogram Mat and Frame is a unique way to display wedding pictures! The bright gold frame and matching monogram gives off a classic elegance that compliments both black and white or color photos.
Place painter's tape
Place the painter’s tape along the beveled edges of the mat. Firmly press the edges of the tape down.
Lightly color inside the bevel with the gold leaf pen. Take care not to let the paint puddle.
After the ink has dried completely, peel off the tape.
Position the stencil as desired and lightly color with the gold pen. Gently lift the stencil and let the paint dry completely. Repeat for any other lettering.
Insert the mat into the frame.
