Saw it, Pinned it, Did it: Monogramed Wreath

Dear Swanky, people of DFW who use this law firm, if you get an invoice with brown on the envelope do not panic. I was eatin' some chocolate before I liked the envelopes  Sorries, but Ms. Stephanie gave it to me and I love her.



Lately I have become obsessed with monogramming things. I love when S says, "If it ain't movin' monogram it!" If it has Chevron and a Monogram together then I'll probably lose my mind and turn into a "Southern White Sorority Girl" Y'all know what I'm talkin' about so don't act like your offended. Just sip on your box wine, bust out your super fake Southern accents you only use in blog land and take it as a compliment before you "Bless My Heart"....

Moving on... So naturally I wanted to try my hand at making one of the monogrammed door decorations.(I really should stop taking pics with my iphone. I promise it looks better in person. The hanger is lopsided, haha) Bestfriend Numero Due just got her first post college "big girl" place. She is going to be in a town house with her boyfriend and a co-worker. I thought this would be the cutest for her but I was not about to spend $50 dollars. I saw those prices on Etsy and said, "The devil is a lie"

Truthfully, I was over the project halfway through. Maybe because is such a funky letter to wrap and I realized halfway trough that I should have started wrapping from a different side. I made more work for myself. I ended up having to wrap some sections more than once.



Supplies
I got everything at JoAnn Fabrics or I already owned it. This bad boy took a couple of hours and only cost about 20 dollars. I worked on this while I caught up with General Hospital.

  • Paper-mache letter. 
  • Ribbon
  • Felt
  • Glue Gun
  • Jute Twine ( I bought two rolls but only needed one. Even with messing up and wrapping one section twice.)


Directions

  1. Start by gluing a a piece of the Jute Twine to the letter. I started wrapping vertical and that was a big mistake because it didn't give the look I wanted and I had to wrap that section again when I was done. I should have started with the inside and then vertical and then horizontal. 
  2. Make sure to had a few dabs of glue here and there. I added glue at every corner and here and there on the straight lines.
  3. Once I was finished adding the glue I made a big bow and glued it on. I also cut some ribbon for it to hand and then made another bow that I glued on the top.
  4. For the rose, I took the felt and cut it out in a spiral. I then wrapped the spiral from the biggest side to the smallest like a sleeping bag. Glue the bottom of the flower so it stays and then glue that bad boy on.
I know this tutorial is noting fancy but this project was nothing fancy either. If you have question just let me know.

I shall leave you with this beautiful cover.

  3. Love this project - so cute! I can't believe it ended up taking a couple hours, that's what happened to me with a wreath I made a few months ago - took way longer than I anticipated! New Follower!
