Monogram Door Hanging!

I don’t like to be caught without some sort of wreath or decoration hanging on my door, am I the only one?  It’s something so simple that just spruces up your home and welcomes people in!  
The trouble is that February is kind of an in-between month, right?  It’s not the Holidays anymore and it’s not quite spring yet, so what do you do?  I know a lot of people would say a Valentine’s decoration, but I’m not a huge fan of the reds and pinks, honestly.  I like a more classy, timeless look.  I don’t decorate for Valentine’s Day, St. Patricks Day, Easter…etc.  Not that there is anything wrong with decorating for those holidays πŸ˜‰
So here is my solution:
Jute wrapped, monogram door hanging!
What you will need:
Wooden monogram letter(michael’s $2.99)
Jute(michael’s $2.99)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Decorative flower of your choice(michael’s $.99)
Ribbon(michael’s $.75)

 Start with a line of glue on the back of the letter
Start the twine on the back of the letter
 I wrapped the difficult areas first, I ended up doing a base layer and then a top layer of jute.  It gives it a more uniform look in the end.
Just keep wrapping, wrapping and wrapping!

Sometimes it helps when you have an adorable puppy sitting with you πŸ˜‰
 My lil’ craft buddy!
See how I wrapped the top layer?   

I wrapped the bottom layer vertically and the top layer horizontally
 Voila! Done!
I added a little bunch of flowers, wrapped a ribbon around and hot glued it.

Finished product!

I’m happy with it.  I’m pretty sure I’m going to trade the black flowers out for some purple flowers.  Black flowers just aren’t what I was looking for, but Michael’s didn’t have a great selection while I was there.

I have to apologize for the annoying watermarks on my finished product photos.  With pinning and all the crazy people on the internet, I don’t want my photos to become disconnected with my blog.  I work hard on my projects and I don’t want anyone else getting the credit πŸ™‚ You should consider doing the same!
