[so cheap, so easy]: Monogram Wreath

I am a list maker and a list checker off-er. Today, I had two very important things on my list located in my handy, dandy notebook (stolen material, I know). Number one was to work on some adoption paperwork, and number two was to work on a bulletin board for church. Instead, I made this wreath. I then decided that I would write "complete wreath" in my notebook and check it off. I felt good about it. And, for those of you who are worried that we will never complete our adoption paperwork, don't. It will be finished soon, plus, when the case worker sees this wreath on our front door, he will totally give us extra points on our home study. Ok. Not really.
All you need for this wreath is a letter, glue, a sheet of moss, a wreath, and ribbon or fabric of your choice. Then, you just need to attach everything. I attached the "J" to the wreath with a small ribbon, and then just tied the bow directly onto the wreath. I actually think it would be super cute without the wreath, but since our monogram is a "J," I felt like it needed a little something extra to balance it out. Perhaps it's a little bit country (again, stolen material), but I like it for now, and plus, I got to check something off of my list.

I'm linking up at the following linky parties.  Check them out!


  1. LOVE it! Thanks for the fab idea! Just found your blog, excited to be your newest follower!

  2. Cute! I have a wreath like that on my front door that is now begging for a letter to go with it!

  3. Your wreath turned out so cute! I'm going to have to remember this one and I think you should for sure be able to scrore extra points with the case worker! That's exciting you are in the process of adopting. I have a little "Stella" too, great name!

  4. So creative!

  5. This is totally cute! What a great idea adding texture with moss!

  6. I would totally give you extra points!!!

  7. I have to say, I rarely like wreaths (*gasp* I KNOW, it's blasphemy!), but I really, REALLY like this. I might even try this one!

  8. Pretty cute! I'll have to look closer but I swear at our craft stores the moss does not come in nice sheets like that.

  9. I love the stripes against the wood, so cute and easy! Great job!

    1. The moss stayed green for the time I had it hanging on my door (probably 4 months or so, I don't remember). It didn't stay AS green because it was outside and faded a bit, but it never turned brown.
