Today I am going to show you how to make a simple monogram wreath. I bought a few wreaths a couple of weeks ago to add to my Christmas decor, but I just couldn’t find a place for them.
Then it hit me make them into something else! This is the fastest thing I have made this year!! Fifteen minutes and I was done!!
Quick Monogram Wreath
- 1 or 2 small wreaths (not the solid metal circle kind,) mine did not have a size on the tag, but it is smaller than 18 inches, for the “P”. I only needed one wreath, depending on what letter you are trying to make you may need two. One to make the wreath, one to cut up and make extra appendages for the letter. These wreaths do not have a thick metal base only wire. You could possibly use a thick garland as an alternative.
- Wire cutters or heavy-duty scissors
Search around the edge of the wreath for the binding. It can be tough to find. If yours does not have one you may have to cut with wire cutters. Mine had a wire holding it together so I cut the wire and it came apart very easily.
Shape wreath into the letter you are using. I twisted the branches together to make the bend connect to the back on the “P”.
Squeeze the branches to make thinner areas. I also added a few branches from another wreath to make the longer curl on the bottom of the “P”. Ballard Designs now has a version of this project.
Add a ribbon and hang it up!!! So Simple! Depending on how festive you are, you could leave this up all year…just change the bow!
