Monogrammed Wreath

By  |  1 Comment

I have seen these wreaths various places over the past year.  The average price was a little over $100.  That was a lot more than I  am willing to pay. However, I really wanted this for my bedroom.  I decided to make it myself and surprisingly,  this monogrammed wreath is one of the easiest wreaths I have ever made.

I purchased my own monogram from craftcuts.com. I order all of my wood products from them. The quality is always good and they have a wide variety of items. If they don’t have what you are looking for, they can cut it special for you. I have used that “special cut” option numerous times and have always been pleased with the my product. I painted my monogram with red “BASICS” acrylic paint and sprayed it with a clear acrylic sealant. Of course, you can use whatever color you prefer.

I then bought this foam ring from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store’s floral department and some moss.

I then covered the ring with moss using my hot glue gun to adhere the moss to the ring.

I tied the monogram onto the wreath using a clear, stretchy cord called “Stretch Magic.”  This is often used for jewelry making and is easy to work with. When you tie on the monogram, you cannot see the string when it is hanging on the wall. Great stuff!

I topped it off with a burlap ribbon and hung it on my bedroom wall!

    What a great tutorial, and a BEAUTIFUL wreath! Even though you are purchasing your wooden letters/monograms for my main competitor, I still wanted to compliment you on your work. Check us out if you are ever looking to do another project like this one. I’d love to work with you on it.
