TGIF, guys! I hope you all had a great week and are super excited about the weekend. I know I am! I’ve got a ton of projects to get caught up on and I can’t wait to start rolling them out on the blog. But first, how about a little DIY Fall Monogram Wreath tutorial. I was excited to make my own this year because I have been using the same old store bought one for the past, eh, four or five years! The shame!
This wreath was super easy to put together and the supplies were very inexpensive. I love how much bang for my buck it gives.
- grapevine wreath
- wooden letter
- twisty ties
- berry sprigs
- burlap ribbon
- glue gun
So, I know in the first picture my ‘C’ is already orange, but when I bought it, it was white and I thought that orange was a fitting color for fall, so I spray painted it.
After the paint dried I hot glued some twisty ties to the back of the letter.
I tied the twisty ties to the wreath. Yup, that’s a different twisty tie than in the last picture. I had to reposition it on the letter ‘C’ and that sucker didn’t want to come off of the hot glue, so I had to grab a new one.
I positioned the berries on the wreath and tinkered with them until they were just right.
Then I looped some plain burlap ribbon under the top of the wreath. This will be attached to the inside of the door and will be what the wreath hangs from.
I made a cute bow from some chevron burlap and safety pinned that to the plain burlap ribbon from the previous step.
And she’s all finished! I love the chevron burlap. (oh, hello there!) Please excuse my front door that is in desperate need of a paint job. Ugh! I can’t stand that door. It’s just not my style. But it gets the job done, so for now it stays.
I’m still tweaking my fall/Halloween porch decor, so stay tuned for an update on that. Have a great weekend everyone! I am going to enjoy this wonderful cool front that will be blowing in. What about you?
