Burlap Monogram Wreath

I’m having a wreath-making party tomorrow (which I’ll be sharing later this week) and as I was prepping I thought I would make myself a new wreath for our front door.  The entire time since we moved in April I have had my Easy Spring Wreath on the front door…we were overdue for a freshening up! I resisted the urge to go for an autumn look just yet and came up with this Burlap Monogram wreath using what I already had on hand.

I used a pool noodle from the dollar store for my base-way cheaper than any foam or straw base from the craft stores.  I had some issues getting it to stay in a circle at first but I reached out to some fellow crafters and it seems the key is LOTS of duct tape! I also used a wood “R” I bought with a coupon at Hobby Lobby and spray painted black-it used to be in my Mud Room.  The burlap runner was less than $10 for a huge roll at Michael’s and I had some fabric scraps from an old pillow project that I used to make my fabric rosettes.

To assemble the wreath I wrapped the burlap around enough to cover the raging bright orange pool noodle and then hot glued the end in place on the back.  I used hot glue to secure the rosettes and letter to the wreath as well.  I was hanging my wreath on a plastic hook so I snipped a little horizontal cut into the wrapped burlap to insert the hook into to hang.  You could also use a coordinating ribbon to hang it as well.

I’m not sure if I’ll leave it up or not, with the window as a background the R kind of gets lost in the mix.  I may need to paint the letter a lighter color to give it a little more contrast.  Overall though I’m super happy with how it turned out considering it was all materials I had on hand and only took about a half hour!

Do you keep a wreath on your front door? If so, how often do you change it out?

    I soooo wish we had Hobby Lobby here in Canada! I went to one last year in Florida and was nearly passing out with joy. I shopped myself senseless!
    I adore anything done with burlap. I’ve been visiting trendy cafes and asking them for their burlap coffee bags – many of them with just give them to you, but I’m also happy to buy them!
    Love your stuff!

    Love your wreath! I’ve been wanting to make a burlap one and your pool noodle idea is genius! I’ve tried foam pipe insulation and it was too flimsy-thanks for the tip. I think maybe a cream color on the monogram or maybe mod podge paper to it to brighten it up?
