Not a Wreath by Megin from VMG206
Today I’m sharing my Not A Wreath ~ Monogram I made for our front door. There are so many options for wreaths to adorn you front door; but I wanted something a little bit different for our (main) front door. Something other than a wreath… And what was the FIRST thing that popped into my mind? MONOGRAM! I’d love to do something fancy with all three letters of my monogram but, Big Surprise, I opted for quick and easy. Here she is ~
Here’s a closer look ~
I like this vintage “barn wood” look ~ or at least that’s what I was going for.
Close up for Flowers ~ with little pearls
Let’s get started!
- Chipboard letter
- White Spray Paint
- Blue Paint
- Brown Pant
- Foam Paint Brush
- Muslin or choice of fabric for hanger
- Burlap and misc. for bows
- Hot glue gun
I picked up this Chipboard “B” from our local craft store, Hobby Lobby, it was under $5.00.
1. I coated it white spray paint as a primer. I let it dry for about an hour.
2. Then I added a layer of blue oops paint I had on hand. I did it a little streaky and left a little of the white showing through. I let this dry for about an hour.
3. Then I wanted to make it distressed so I added some streaks of brown oops paint randomly with a sponge brush, again, leaving some white showing through. I let this dry overnight.
4. Finally, I added a burlap strip for a hanger and embellished with burlap, tulle and lacy doily flowers I made. You can decorate it however you wish; make it yours! I do love how it turned out! I like the “barn wood” look. What do you think? Have you made a new wreath for your front door lately? I’d love for you to share with me in the comments below.
