Monogrammed Wreath

What's a quick easy way to let visitors know that they're at the right house? With a personalized wreath!

So first I have to apologize for not taking a "before" picture of all the supplies, so I'll just go ahead and list them all here (everything costs about $28 at my local craft store):

- straw wreath (leave the plastic on)
- 2x duct tape sheets
- decorative beads to personalize your wreath
- twine
- hot glue gun
- small wooden sign (I chose "family")
- wooden letter
Start by tying the twine and knotting it in the back of the wreath. Then continue wrapping the twine around until the wreath is completely covered.

 
 
 
When it's completely covered in twine, tie off a loop to hang up the wreath.
 


 
Take one sheet of duct tape paper and cut it in half, wrap it around the wreath. Cover your wooden letter with the other sheet and glue it onto the wreath.



Cover the half strip of duct tape with ribbon (you can just wrap it around and knot it in the back like you did with the twine).

 
 

Next, glue your beads or decorative items onto your sign; once dry you can glue the sign onto the wreath.

 
 
 
And just for kicks, I added a ribbon to that loop we made earlier.
 
 
 
Hang it up on your door and you're done!
