How to Make a Bullet Monogram

I used to feel slightly guilty each time I threw away spent ammunition, it seemed so wasteful. I wasn’t interested in reloading it–that’s a huge undertaking. But since I’m always looking for something to spray with glitter paint, I thought “Hey…wait a minute.” And tried these letters.

These letters are fun to put on bedroom doors, bookshelves, or use as decoration in a hunting lodge. Super easy too.

What You’ll Need

  • Wooden cut out letter
  • A handful of spent ammunition (can be acquired at a local shooting range; just tell them you’re doing an arts and crafts project)
  • Hot glue
  • Spray paint


Spray the wooden letter with your desired spray paint. Do a few layers until the coat looks even.

Allow to dry.

Using hot glue, adhere the spent ammunition to the letters.

I recommend going from largest to smallest ammunition. You can do this orderly or random, it is your letter!

Next, spray the surface of the ammunition.

Make sure you get in all the cracks and crevasses.

Allow to dry for 24 hours.

I love the look of the finished product. So fun!
