Monogram Computer Background DIY

One of the things that I knew I had on my laptop during my freshman year was a monogram background. The issue is how to make one. After a lot of messing around, I have finally put together a step-by-step guide for y'all!

1. Download a monogram font (I use this one!)

2. Pick an image that you want to serve as the background (a Lilly print, chevron, stripes, etc.)

3. Open an empty PowerPoint slide


4. Add in your image and adjust to fit properly


5. Insert in a circle and adjust the size


6. Add three different text boxes for each initial (regular for first name and middle name, capitalized for last name)


7. Go into format, font to change the font



Step 8: Once you have all of the letters in the font, adjust the size


Step 9: Then adjust the location


Step 10: Make the circle white (or whatever color you desire!)


Step 11: Change the color of the monogram


Step 12: Take a screenshot of your background


Step 13: Move the screenshot into iPhoto


Step 14: Go into Settings, Desktop/Screensaver, iPhoto, recently imported and click on your background


Step 15: And voila! You have a monogrammed computed background!

  1. So fun! During my sophomore year of college I printed out and made monogram binder covers for all of my school binders! (I was too lazy to do it last year... maybe I need to bring it back for senior year haha!)
