Monogram Fall Wreath

Happy Fall! I am seriously in love with my new fall wreath! Its a simple monogram wreath that looks amazing on my front door! The fall tones, polkadots, and burlap are to die for. Bring on Autumn!!

Monogram Fall Wreath

Fall is one season that I think every front door needs a wreath for. I don’t know why, but its a wreath season to me! What do you think? This fall monogram wreath screams fall to me and I am loving it! I am so ready for fall and this wreath just makes me happy. This wreath was inspired by this wreath on Pinterest.monogram wreath

{See my past fall wreaths here and here.}

How to make a Monogram Wreath

Supplies:

  • natural wreath form
  • 10″ wood letter
  • twine
  • craft paint: burnt orange and metallic gold
  • 6″ wide burlap ribbon {I used about 2 yards}
  • 5 stems of fall flowers
  • 2 stems of fall berries
  • 1″ round pouncer
  • paint brush
  • hot glue

polka dot monogram

1. Paint the wood letter with the dark orange paint. {I did 3 coats}. Allow to dry thoroughly. {I used a hair dryer to speed up the process in this humid VA climate!}

2. Use the round pouncer and gold paint to create the polkadots. Allow to dry thoroughly.

3.  Attach the letter to the wreath using the twine and hot glue.

burlap bow4. Using the burlap ribbon, make a bow. Here’s a tip on how to cut the ends of the burlap bow straight:

How to Cut Burlap Straight

how to cut burlap straight

Snip the edge of the burlap and pull one single strand of burlap out. Then using scissors, cut along the line where the strand was removed and you will get a completely straight line! This will also help the burlap from shedding as much. {you might remember this from here}

5. After you trim off the ends of the burlap bow, its a good idea to sew across the burlap ends with a straight stitch on your sewing machine to keep the ends from fraying over time. {optional, but recommended}

6. Hot glue the burlap bow across the wreath from the monogram.

fall silk flowers7. If your silk flowers are upright, bend them over slightly {as shown above} so that when you lay them on the wreath, the flower will show.

8. Arrange the silk flowers and berry stems around the burlap bow and hot glue in place.  I put the berries on each end of the flowers to soften the look. I liked how my silk flowers had green leaves so I tried to make them show in a few places to add more color and depth to the wreath.

monogram wreathI used wire to attach the wreath to the nail in my front door. And I absolutely adore this pretty monogram fall wreath! If you enjoyed this wreath tutorial, please pin it on Pinterest or share it with your fiends!

    Just a few questions: How wide was the ribbon you used and how many yards? Also, what was the size of the letters? Sorry so many questions but what type of paint – the ones in the squeeze bottles? I love this idea and am anxious to try it soon. Thanks!

      Hi Vicki,
      I’m so sorry I left out those details! I wrote that post really late. The burlap ribbon is 6″ wide and I used about 2 yards. The wood letter is 10″ tall. And yes, I used the 2oz squeeze bottles of craft paint in gloss/metallic finishes. If you have anymore questions, just let me know! I’d love to see your wreath, if you get a second :) Thanks for stopping by!
      happy crafting,
      Linda

    Love this idea, now why did I not think of it. The initial is fantastic.
    I might go smaller with the letters and spell ” F A L L” instead of the initial. (depending on the cost of the letters)

    Hi Linda, I love grapevine wreaths! Super cute. I love your site redesign btw! I guess it’s been longer than I thought since dropping by. Your baby girl is super cute & love the bows diy too.

  1. [...] I love boxwood! Not sure if its because I live in the south, but boxwood wreaths are one of my favorite things. So over the weekend, I put this classy boxwood Christmas wreath together. The candy cane striped monogram is so festive! Pairing boxwood with a fab monogram was the perfect pairing. {check out my Monogram Fall wreath!} [...]
