DIY It - A Modern Floral Monogram Wreath

First off, I would like to say thank you to Joann Fabric and Craft Stores for sponsoring this post and providing me with the supplies that I used to make this wreath as well as compensating me for my time and crafting abilities! I have been a loyal Joann Stores customer for 10+ years and am so excited to be working with them to create awesome crafts and ideas for you all! All ideas and opinions expressed in this post are mine alone.

A well-crafted wreath is a great way to liven up a boring front door. Like this modern floral monogram wreath. It is the perfect way to usher in the warmer weather and is perfect for adorn your front door all the way through the summer months.

The Supplies:





Begin by spray painting your wreath frame with the gold Krylon spray paint on your cardboard. This will help color both your wreath frame and cardboard (that you will use to create your monogram letter) at the same time. Once your paint has dried, trace the inside of the wreath frame. You will want your monogram letter to fit inside this circle to get the floating letter effect of this wreath. You can either use a word document to blow up a letter to the size you need (the diameter of the inner circle that you traced) and print it out as a tiled page that you can then cut and trace onto your cardboard, or go ahead and draw a letter free hand in the circle. Once you have your letter drawn on the cardboard, use your utility knife to cut out the letter. 

Now that all of your supplies are ready, start by pulling off the blooms from your silk floral stems and using the hot glue to attach a few large blooms in the center of your letter. Continue to glue the flowers on your cardboard base using the small flowers to fill in spots and define the edges.


Once you have filled in your entire cardboard monogram letter with flowers and a few pieces of greenery, poke tiny holes using a pin or tip of your utility knife about 1/2" in on the top and bottom corners of your letter. Thread the fishing line through the hole and tie the line off around the inner ring of your wreath frame. Repeat with all four holes. Now, use floral wire or more hot glue to attach a few more pieces of greenery leaves around the gold wreath frame. I liked the modern look of leaving the gold painted wreath frame exposed with just three pieces of greenery. But if you would like, feel free to cover the entire wreath frame with leaves for a more traditional wreath look.



This modern floral monogram wreath is the perfect way to welcome spring's arrival. The florals from Jo-Ann fabric and craft stores look amazing when all paired together to create this beautiful letter bouquet for your front door. Don't you think?
