Easy DIY Coastal Anchor Monogram

I made an easy diy coastal anchor monogram which suitable for beach theme decor. I made the monogram from the back of a broken picture frame and my nautical ornament that I have made earlier; an anchor from popsicle stick and cotton rope.

Let me share with you how I made the coastal anchor monogram, but before that, you need to prepare several things for this easy diy, which are:

  • A plank base for monogram, I used the back of an un-used picture frame. So it’s already have hangers for hanging.
  • Balsa wood for “R” monogram. Or you can buy wooden R shape if you wanted to save time.
  • Light blue acrylic paint.
  • Glue
  • Anchor nautical ornament (see how I made it from only using popsicle sticks and cotton rope)


These are the easy steps to make coastal anchor monogram :

  1. I cut the balsa wood in the shape of letter “R”. I made it from 2 parts since my balsa wood is not wide enough to have a whole R monogram.
  2. Paint the balsa wood in light blue acrylic paint. Leave it to dry.
  3. Glue the R shapes onto the base (the back of un-used picture frame) to form the R initial. Let it dry and firm.
  4. Glue the The anchor nautical ornament on the “R” monogram. Let it dry.
  5. Your diy coastal anchor monongram is ready! Easy right?!


You can hang the monogram or simply put it on your coastal theme mantel. This super easy diy it’s a great upcycling project to make in such a short time.
