Rustic Initial Wreath

Today I have a craft to share that is very easy, elegant and fast! This wreath is something you can make in an afternoon to spruce up a front door or mantel. I think this design is something you could definitely use year round or between Holidays!

With the wire cutter and scissors, cut off individual branches and grass pieces.

Weave both through the branches of the wreath, I thought of this wreath kind of like a crown with the top of it being the point where the branches came together to form a point.

Cut a small piece of twine and attach it to the branches on the back, where you want it to hang. Using the ribbon, attach the wooden initial so it hangs in the middle of the wreath.

Using a separate piece of ribbon, make a bow on the outside part of the ribbon that is attached to the wreath, this just gives it a little extra touch.

    This wreath looks great. Maybe even I, a person with NO DIY skills, could do it! Thanks so much for linking up with the Let’s Get Real hop. We hope you’ll link up again this week.

    I really like the addition of the initial to the wreath – really adds something to it.

    This is lovely, often the wreaths that I see and like are made from materials that are not that durable, I live in Scotland and something like this would survive the weather!!
