DIY: Wreath + Burlap Bow

There's somethin' about a monogram. And burlap. And then when you combine them and add a wreath, it's like a party on your front door. Everyone that drives by our house will see the beautiful creation and be like, "Whoa."
Just call me Suzy Homemaker.

But seriously, could this wreath get any cuter? I think not.

This project probably cost about $28 in total and it was definitely worth it.

Annndddd I'm guessing that you're still reading because you want to make one too, right?! Okay perfect. First things first, let's make the bow. I found this pin and followed the easy steps to make my bow. Really, the steps were simple... anyone could follow it! You basically just need a ruler (or a measuring tape in my case), a stapler, and your ribbon.
Once your bow is completed, you'll want to attach it to your wreath and then hang the monogram! My bow doesn't look quite right since I attached the monogram to the wreath by covering up part of the bow. But that's okay. 

I bought this bronze colored wreath hanger for the door. I used to use the discrete looking hanger (I'm drawing a blank on what they're called) where it looks like the wreath is floating. Well that didn't work, so I went back to the over-the-door hanger.

The wooden monogram is from Etsy. I originally stained it, but didn't care for the stain, so I spray painted it this beautiful blue color!
Happy DIYing and Happy Thursday!
