DIY Monogrammed Cutting Board

I must say this project was my absolute favorite!

I randomly picked up a small glass cutting board while I was at the Dollar Tree picking up DIY supplies because it looked like the perfect size for a bar cart. You always need an area to slice a lime or lemon as garnish. Of course I can’t leave good enough alone and I decided it needed a monogram and animal print!

Here is what you’ll need to tackle this project:

GLASS CUTTING BOARD
TWO DIFFERENT STYLES OF SCRAPBOOKING PAPER
X-ACTO KNIFE
MOD PODGE
PAINTBRUSH
PLASTIC CUTTING BOARD
GRAPHITE

STEP 1: First step is getting the base of our cutting board. I decided to go with a pattern and of course I picked a leopard print. Now the back of the cutting board has 4 glass feet on the bottom so we need to cut around them. In order to know where to cut we use a piece of graphite (you can simply use a pencil) and traced over the feet.

We also used the graphite to trace the full circle so we knew where to cut there as well.

Use the X-Acto knife to cut everything out:

STEP 2: Once our base was cut out we needed to get our monogram done. I love emerald and cheetah together so I went with emerald for my monogram. I printed out a sketch of my monogram that I have and taped it on my emerald paper and used the X-Acto knife to cut it out.

STEP 3: Now it’s time to apply the monogram. We used painters tape to make sure our monogram was centered. Make sure to place your monogram backwards/reverse.

Apply Mod Podge to the back of letters and set into place:

Then apply a layer of Mod Podge over the entire board:

STEP 4: Apply Mod Podge to the back of your background paper in my case that was the leopard paper. Set into place.

STEP 5: Let cutting board sit overnight so that the Mod Podge can fully dry. Then it’s time to protect the back side of the cutting board so you can hand wash it. You will need to do at least 5 coats of Mod Podge and let them dry in between each coat.

Once that fully dries you can enjoy your new beauty!

I think it looks like a million bucks and since I already had a lot of the supplies in my craft closet and just needed to pick up the cutting board and two sheets of scrapbooking paper it came up to a total of 3 bucks for me!
