Welcome Fall: A Monogram Wreath

October is like a decor tug of war for me. I want Halloween decor but I want Fall decor. I usually mix in a little of both and luckily November is full fledged Fall around here. 

During the last couple of weeks I've been participating in a fun Fall craft challenge on Instagram (#DIYItsFallOhMy) with several other talented creatives! So far I've created a fall centerpiece and a pumpkin spice coffee bar! This week, the theme is wreaths and banners. I'd never attempted making a wreath, so I decided to give it a try!

What You Need

  • Grapevine Wreath ($1 Dollar Tree)

  • Package of Faux Leaves 

  • Wood Letter ($1.47 Walmart)

  • Paint

  • Foam Paint Brush

Start by choosing a monogram letter. Walmart carries the perfect sized wooden letters for under $2. I used some metallic craft paint I picked up during Target's holiday clearance last year and painted the letter. You could also cover it with paper of your choosing using mod podge.

A few months back, I had a lucky thrift find at Goodwill, a package of Crate & Barrel faux leaves for $.99. If you don't get that lucky, Dollar Tree also carries faux leaves.

Use a hot glue gun to arrange the leaves in layers on the wreath.

When your monogram letter of choice is dry, glue it on top of the leaves.
