Supplies for Split Letter Monogram Plaque:

1.  I picked up my wooden plaque at Michael’s Craft Stores.  I gave it a coat of Stain using a foam brush and wiping the excess off with my rag..  You could also paint it if you’d like.

2.  While that dried, I cut my vinyl on my Cameo and weeded the excess vinyl away, leaving only my design behind.

3.  Using transfer paper I picked up the vinyl from the backing and centered it on the plaque and applied the vinyl.  I made sure all tlhe little flourishes and tips of vinyl were firmly pressed down.

4.  I then covered the vinyl and plaque with 2 coats of Mod Podge letting each coat dry in between.

Once it was dry I could either hang on the wall or place on a small plate easel.

You can personalize this how every you like.  Above I put their first names in the split of the letter but in my video I just put my last name.

  1. I love the split monogram. What a great idea. I’ve got to remember this for gift giving! It’d make a fun wedding gift or Christmas gift. I have to do the split monogram for my next silhouette project! Great tutorial!

  2. Love this! If I used it on a cheese board tray, what you recommend as a top coat that would be food safe? I would want to seal the vinyl in.

  3. Looks great! What kind of stain did you use? Also, do you have to do a mirror image of your design so that the letters come out in the correct orientation or is that only for HTV?

    1. Hi Keri! I used a Minwax stain cloth. I used them all so I have no idea what “color” it was, so sorry! You do not have to mirror with vinyl, only HTV. So you cut this just as is and the sticky part is on the back like a sticker!
