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 😉
So here is my solution:
Jute wrapped, monogram door hanging!
What you will need:
Wooden monogram letter(michael’s $2.99)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Decorative flower of your choice(michael’s $.99)
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 😉
My lil’ craft buddy!
See how I wrapped the top layer?
I wrapped the bottom layer vertically and the top layer horizontally
I added a little bunch of flowers, wrapped a ribbon around and hot glued it.
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 🙂 You should consider doing the same!
