How to make a decorative rock letter

Home decorators often bring natural elements such as wood or stone into spaces to help the room feel more grounded and tranquil. Invoking nature has a calming effect on the tone of the room, bringing in that serenity we seek when we escape to nature. It also adds dimension and texture to a room's design.
To bring the outdoors in, try making this simple, personalized piece of art. Initial accents are very on trend these days, and when combined with natural elements, the result is a unique, truly personal accent point. The design and pattern can be suited to any style preference, and the natural variations and patterns in the stones will bring life and depth to any color palette. A rock letter would look just as at home on a mantel or bookshelf as it would on a front porch or in a garden. The design options are nearly endless.
