What's your letter?

I saw this letter wreath on Pinterest a while back and decided to give it a whirl. I have always loved the ones seen in Ballard Designs but didn't want to spend the money. Although it looks like they are on sale now for $29.00 which isn't too bad.

I got my letter at Hobby Lobby. They were around $12 but I had a 40% off coupon so I paid a little over $7. Then the garland was 50% off at Hobby Lobby and I bought it 15 feet long.

At first I started wrapping it all the way around and it was too cumbersome and I quickly ran out of garland. So I started doing the front only and zigzagging it around the S. I used my glue gun and staple gun to hold it in place.

Then I decided to hang it on my back storm door and so the back would be visible when leaving our house.  I went back with some cheap Dollar Tree garland (one package was the exact right amount) and glued it to the back of the S.



I attached it with ribbon also found at Hobby Lobby.



And voila! It was pretty easy. I am happy with the results.
