What the H? vinyl monogrammed plate

Monogramming is apparently the “in” thing right now, and I have fallen for it hook, line, and sinker!

Here are a few monogrammed items that I’ve recently completed.

(Click the image to see the original post.)

I’m still in love with these!

Well, I’ve done it again! I’ve made yet another monogrammed home decor item.

I just can’t help myself! They are way too stinkin’ cauute!!

Okay, so I’ve seen plates with monograms all over blog-land. In fact, *I* had the idea FIRST, but there are lots of bloggers who apparently have ESP, because before I could get my vinyl in the mail I started seeing monogrammed plates popping up everywhere! But just so we’re clear, they read my mind and they copied me!


I bought an H to match my other H projects. Did you notice it’s black this time instead of white?


It’s nice having an H last name because now I get to make all sorts of inappropriate comments and it’s totally legit!
What the H?! Fo’ shizzle!

So next I took my Big H and found the center and marked it with an X. Then in all my Type-A, anal retentive, OCD glory I used a ruler just to make sure it wasn’t even a millimeter off center.


Did I mention yet that I’m sticking it to a plate? I’m sticking it to a white dollar store ceramic plate.


Rub on, peel off. Just gorgeous!!


BIG H, little h. What begins with H?? Hungry Horse. Hay. Hen in a hat. Hooray! Hooray!


So next I used a Dischanger to hang it up. Sure beats those awful metal plate hangers!


I can think of all sorts of things H can stand for. House. Hepworths. Homebody. Helvetica. Hook ’em Horns.


I decided to hang it up in the worst lit spot in my entire apartment – right between the fireplace and our TV. Sure makes for great pictures when you have really crappy lighting.


It was so easy and cheap to make, but I just really love it!


How in the H? Have I used that line enough yet? I can’t wait to do a monogram of my first name. “A” has all sorts of great jokes I can make!

Considering I’m totally obsessed with monogramming, and I’ve only done H so far, expect lots of monogrammed stuff in the near future. I’ve already got the next monogrammed item almost finished and I can’t wait to show you!

Peace out.

    Lots of fun and a great way to work with kids on their alphabet, too! Rory

  9. I love it, and that is soooooooo my price range! Thank you also for turning me on to those plate hangers.

  10. I love this! We call my littlest guy H, short for Harrison! We have B’s everywhere, but h’s are prettier, and I’m not at all biased 😉

  11. Ohh, love it! It looks so classy, and actually fits in that spot perfectly! My last name started with an M… which is nice, because I’ve noticed all the PB items in the catalog have that initial on them, too. Not that I’ve ever ordered anything from them, really, but if I did it’d be nice to know exactly what I’d be getting! 🙂 Can’t wait to see your other monogram projects – I love monograms!

  12. Very Nice. You are especially luck to have a nice letter to use. Does that make sense? LOL Great job and I can’t wait to see your next project

  13. Oh I love it! I was hoping you found some fabulous way to add a monogram to a plate that you can use … but I suppose you’d need some serious equipement for that (like a kiln?) I love anything personalized! Even have a whole post dedicated to it … including personalized china … melts my heart!
    from one Allison to another …

  14. Thanks for including me in your blog party list! Great list, btw! Great idea.

    Oh, and I love the monogram plate!

    Thanks again for linking up all your great projects at Sugar & Spice.

  18. I’m excited for your first name too. Love the monogramming!!

  19. Looks awesome! And that plate hanger rocks!

  20. gorgeous! I LOVE it!

  21. I love it! I can’t believe that is a dollar store mirror – it looks so much more expensive!

  22. What a fun idea! It’s one of those “why didn’t I think of that” ideas! I love it! Thanks so much for sharing!

  23. Very very cute! I am going to make one of those. I have never thought of doing a plate! Thanks so much for sharing!

  24. haha sorry I left two comments, I didn’t think the first one got published!! 🙂 Oops!

  25. I LOVE this… like you, I have a serious and heartfelt love for monograms. As much as possible, please. And on a dollar store plate? Great idea!
    We have a Friday Fun Finds linky party… we’d love it if you’d link to this. 🙂

  26. Love the plate. And yes, I loved the knife block too!

    Two suggestions: 1) I think this plate would make a great place to set your keys when you come in, as opposed to a wall plate. (Although I must say I LOVE the dischangers link!) 2) You may want to check out this monogrammed mouse pad. I think it was on the My Romantic Home Blog on her Friday link party. She made her own monogram but you could buy it too.

    Love the monograms! My last name begins with “H” too so I especially love your projects!

  27. Luv the monogram, but luv the plate hanger more – I have not seen those! Great, and funny, post!
    Your friend in H,

    I have lots of projects on my blog that I did using vinyl if you want to take a peek sometimes :o)

  30. Well, I’m always behind the power curve. I really don’t have anything monogrammed! Isn’t that just sad? And we have the same initials! hmmmm, in case you run out of places to put yours you can send them my way! I like the font you are using too!

  31. I love it! That adhesive hanger is pretty nefty too!!

  32. Sigh. I wish I could have a never-ending supply of vinyl monograms. Wouldn’t that be lovely?

    Thanks for linking up to the Mad Skills party!

  33. Fabulous! I must try this. 🙂

  34. Cool idea! The H script is especially nice.

  41. Soooo CUTE!!! Such a great idea. Oh, and where did you buy the monogram?? Might want to try the idea myself 🙂

  42. Hi
    This is super cute!! I’m new to vinyl, where do you buy it? Do I have to have a Cricut to do this? Can you buy just letters? What’s the least expensive way? Your blog is great, keep up the good work! 😀

  43. Fab-U-Loso!!!


  44. What font did you use for the H? I love it! I have had my silhouette for a few years and I am just getting into the vinyl cutting and monogramming…thanks in advance!
