Hi everyone. I’m really excited to share this DIY Monogram Wreath with you today. This is the first time I’ve ever made a wreath. As much as I love to DIY everything, I usually purchase fresh wreaths every year. Mostly because I love the fresh pine smell when I go in and out the front door. The downside was that I was dropping $30+ a year on wreaths. While that may not seem like a lot, it does add up over time.
I had an idea of what I wanted to make, so I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and just started grabbing some things.
I cut the monogram initial out of white vinyl and stuck it on the wood slab. I painted on some outdoor Mod Podge to seal it and let it dry. After it dried, I used jute twine to tie it onto the frame of the wreath.
I stuck the picks into the wreath and secured them to the wreath frame with floral wire. When doing this, I also wrapped the wire around the jute webbing on the back to keep that in place as well.
I am so thrilled with how it turned out. I was really nervous about making my own wreath because I’d never made one before, and because sometimes my ideas don’t always pan out. This definitely did and I’m happy to have a wreath that I love that I can keep putting out year after year. It even got my husband’s seal of approval:)
