Monogrammed Initial Wall Hanging

We updated our daughters' room from little girl pink to big girl brown/aqua and lime.  My daugher was eleven at the time and not girly in the least.  She picked her own fabric and I made coordinating pillows and bedskirt to match her purchased brown comforter set.  I wanted something cute with her initial to hang over her bed.  Everything I looked at was around $60.  So, I made it myself. 

I love animal prints so I opted for brown giraffe drapery weight fabric.  I bought half a yard for about $6.50.  I had it monogrammed for another $6.00 with a single initial.  Then I stretched it around a canvas that I already had at home and got out my handy staple gun. 

It looks awful from the back, huh? 

I actually intended to attach a ribbon on the back and hang it, but.....I forgot.  I need to get on that.  Oh well!  It's still not bad for $12.50.
