Make a simply elegant statement with this Chic and Cheap Wall Art DIY. Using a discarded recyclable cardboard box as a base, you'll learn how to make a monogram that is lightweight and lovely. Play up the contrast between the boldness of the capital letter and the delicacy of the paper quilling by using black paint and white paper. Or, if you'd like to make a quilled monogram as a gift, use the recipient's two favorite colors. Because supplies for this project can be found in most homes, this inexpensive DIY wall art is a convenient solution for a bare bedroom.

This is a terrific project for a gift...birthday...anniversary! It is also great for a decor piece for the home because even though the black and white is really eye popping you can change it up to match your own home colors. I always have these type of materials around our home too and I've been wanting to learn how to quill for quite some time now. I think with this project I can accomplish several goals at one time. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

I am hoping to monogram some items for my daughter, so this project is perfect! I love how this looks so chic, too.

This project is stunning, and black and white is the best color combination. ;)
