Burlap Monogram Wreath

Posted by on Feb 18, 2013 in Uncategorized | 14 comments

I have been making wreaths lately.

I get on different “kicks.”

Wreath are the latest.

My kitchen countertops are full of burlap, ribbon, moss, glue gun debris.

I recently made a burlap wreath.

I have made a few wreaths for the shop.

But, I am wanting something new for my front door.

I am looking for:

A wreath that says “welcome to our home”. . .

A little different from others I have seen. . .

Includes materials that are similar to the style of my house. . .

I am asking a lot of this little wreath!

Today I think I have achieved what I have been aiming for.

I gathered my supplies:

-one oval yard sale frame

-burlap ribbon

-super thin ribbon

-sheet moss

-chipboard letter (also a yard sale find for me)

-hot glue gun (mine is not worthy of having her picture made)

I laid my chipboard letter on the moss and traced around it with a Sharpie and cut it out.

I left a little room to wrap the moss around the letter.

I had to make small cuts in the curves to be able to wrap the moss around the letter.

The gluing was done, but it was a messy on the back.

I trimmed it close with scissors.

Now on to the frame.

I folded the ribbon to give me a clean start.

I glued the ribbon on to the side of the frame.

I wanted to hide the seam as best as I could.

I began folding and gluing.

This is the back after all of the gluing was done.

I overlapped the ribbon about 2 inches where they met.

I added a dot of glue to the end of the ribbon to keep it secure.

Using the super thin ribbon, I glued the moss letter to the frame.

I think this is what I have been looking for.

Now I can clean my countertops off!
