Recently, I was looking for something to decorate my little boy nursery. Something hand made, like a little proof of love from me to him. In the book ‘Paper Craft Home’ by Sarah Louise Matthews, I have found some inspiration to do this beautiful DIY Botanical paper monogram.
This DIY is fun and colorful and perfect for a nursery or a kid bedroom so I thought I would share it with you. You will be surprised to see how quick and simple it is to create your own botanical monogram. It took me around 1 hour to do it, and once framed (Ikea) the result is quite nice, isn’t it ? It can also be a quite nice gift for a friend !

What I love about this DIY is that you can easily make it your own and adapt it. My boy nursery has a green, grey, black and white color palette. So I worked with similar colors. You can also change the style of the leaves to make it more equatorial or even floral depending on what you like.
