Fall Initial Wreath DIY

Easy Personalized Fall Monogram Wreath DIY

I always start decorating for fall as soon as it's September 1st and with that, it was time for a new door wreath. I'm seeing initials and monograms on everything lately, so like my last wreath, I wanted to have our initial on it. I was going to paint the initial but then I was going through a pile of scrapbook paper and saw some paper that I liked instead.

~ Supplies ~
Branch wreath frame
Floral stems
Wooden initial
Burlap ribbon
Patterned scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
Scissors or exacto knife
Small disposable paint brush

Trace the wooded initial onto the paper you chose and cut out with an exacto knife or scissors.

  20. Fall wreaths always cheer me up and I love to see the different ones in people's doors walking in my neighborhood. I don't have one up yet but yours is way too adorable and I really like how you added the initial to it to personalize it. <3 I usually get my fall scented candles out for fall. They immediately get me in fall mood when I light them up and the scents fills up my house. Also I get my cozy throws out and have them ready for snuggling and decoration on the sofas and chairs. Lovely post Jill. XOXO, Elif
