DIY Wreath

I grew up with always having wreaths on doors, and my door at school was very boring and plain so I was inspired to make my own Letter Wreath.

What you need is a wreath, some fake flower and a wood letter. The tools you need are scissors and a hot melt glue gun. All of these items can be purchased at craft stores, such as Michaels or Wal-Mart also carries them.

This works with any size wreath, any flowers, any letters. I chose hydrangeas and the letter E for my name. You can also do smaller letters, if you want to have it for more than one name, for example E & K, would also work.

Start out by placing the flowers and letter on the wreath to find a place that looks good. 
When you find the perfect place, start by glue gunning the flowers to the wreath on the back. Make sure you put enough glue so your flower's stick, but not too much because you don't want it to show on the front.
After you have your flowers glued down, it's time to glue the letter(s) down.
I found this to be a little tricky, as you want to put enough so it doesn't fall off. Make sure you put enough glue on the wreath and back of the letter, attaching the letter to the front of the wreath. 

Now your wreath is finished and ready to hang up. Depending on the size of your wreath you may have difficulty hanging it up. What I ended up doing is tying some picture hanging wire on the back so it made it easier to hang on the nail in the door.
When you're finished, you will have a beautiful wreath to hang!
