I whipped up these easy Joy letters, they are made just like my Quick Monogram Wreath from last Christmas. I love the three wreath idea of hanging them in a row, so I made Letter versions out of some of left over small wreaths I bought last year. They are same ones I made the Quick Monogram P Wreath out of. They turned out great and under an hour to make. Here’s how I did it!
Materials: 3 small wreaths (not the solid metal circle kind,) mine did not have a size on the tag, but it is smaller than 18 inches. I only needed one wreath for each letter, plant wire, ribbon, 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 just cut the wreath 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. Cut off or squeeze the branches close to the base to make thinner areas. To add the top to the J I used plant wire, wrap and tie it to secure it down to the top letter. The top branches of the Y were also tied with wire. If you have thick areas that just wont squeeze down you can also wrap them with wire. Add a ribbon and hang it up!!! So Simple!
