My fall decor has long been packed just as with my Christmas decor. I wanted to think of something that would carry me through spring into summer. My initial thought was a wreath of branches that perfectly spun out from the center, but those are a way more than I wanted to spend on this project. My next thought was pink cherry blossoms, but pink wouldn’t go so well with my red front door. Then I passed by the wooden letter aisle at my local craft store and found this baby for just $5!
So it isn’t technically a wreath, but it is a chic, modern interpretation of front door decor. This DIY project was super simple and I love how it turned out.
12 inch letter (I used our last initial)
ribbon or lace
fabric (I used burlap)
hot glue gun & glue
2 nails or large tacks
optional: spray paint, buttons, twigs
I made the burlap rosettes the same way I made the felt flowers for the fall wreath. Using a long, rectangular piece of burlap or fabric, use hot glue to roll the burlap into itself and secure with hot glue. Glue a small circular piece of felt to the back of the rosette to create a flat surface.
I had an old elastic bracelet with plastic pearl-like beads on it, snipped it apart, and sewed a few beads on. I then secured the rosettes to the wooden letter with hot glue.
I considered giving the letter some texture or color, but I honestly wanted a quick project and believe that for something like this, simple is better.
