Hey there! I am so happy that we are finally seeing some spring weather in Georgia! I don’t know about you but bundling up little ones in multiple layers and trying to get out of the door on time has been a serious task. I’m excited for spring decorating, fashion, and outdoor activities! BRING IT ON! In honor of spring, I created a new piece of door candy! As you know, I love all things burlap and monogram, so it was only right for me to combine my two loves into one project– a Spring Monogram Wreath.
Let’s get to it…
2 bushels of colored “bushes”- I purchased these from Michael’s in their spring florals. They had a variety of colors if you would like to change it up a bit to fit your decor.
Burlap ribbon- I purchased this from Hobby Lobby @ 50% off
Natural “Grapevine” Wreath- Purchased from Michael’s
Hot glue gun with extra glue sticks
Jute twine- Dollar Tree
Letter for Monogram- Michaels
Seriously, I got all of these materials for less than $15.
Step 1: This is an optional step. I noticed that my wreath form was a little loose (if that makes sense) and I wanted to make it tighter. I tightly wrapped jute twine around the entire wreath form to bring together any loose twigs. Like I said, this is purely optional.
Step 2: Make your bow. I created a tutorial on how to make this perfect DIY Burlap Bow a few days ago. Check out this post if you need some help with bow making. This tutorial is super detailed with step-by-step directions and pictures to help even the least crafty of folks.
Step 3: Cut a few inches from the stems of your bushes. You want to leave some of the stem in tact as it will be used as a pick to place into your wreath form. Begin layering half of your florals into the upper left side of your wreath form.
Step 4: Use your bow as a place holder to determine spacing of your next layer of bushes. Do not glue your bow onto the wreath yet. Begin placing the rest of your bushes in the opposite direction, right under the bow.
Step 5: Glue the bow in the gap between the upper and bottom bushes.
Step 6: I love the look of twine. I think it gives such a rustic and natural feel to projects. Therefore, I used two pieces of jute twine to tie my “S” onto the right side of the wreath. You may choose a different method of attachment; however, I love the look of this.
Step 7: Create hanger. I created a hanger using more jute twine and a simple knot. You can see the picture above for the look of the hanger.
Step 8: Fluff bow and hang
