DIY monogrammed winter wreath decor

Win a $75 credit to The Wreath Depot - and make a winter wreath just like this one!I am an admitted wreath junkie. I’ve posted several wreaths on this blog and I love decorating them. So I was excited when The Wreath Depot contacted me about doing a project, because it was the chance to switch things up a bit. You see, I don’t typically work with natural/real wreaths – but after making this monogrammed wreath, that is about to change. I love the idea of having a real wreath base and adding a Mod Podged element to it for decoration. So easy – so quick – and so pretty.

I ordered a eucalyptus wreath from The Wreath Depot because I wanted to have a textured, green base that I could add something to. I did not except the wreath to smell this good! It arrived in a large box, and it was even more gorgeous than in the photo on their site – lush and full. This The Wreath Depot’s 24th year of making handcrafted wreaths, so I guess they know what they are doing by now. Ha! In addition to eucalyptus wreaths, they have dried flower wreaths, twig wreaths, silk wreaths, lavender wreaths . . . they also have wreaths for every season. I’m going to get to a great giveaway, but before that, I want to show you how I customized my wreath.

Gather These Supplies

  • Eucalyptus wreath from The Wreath Depot – I got this one

  • Mod Podge Matte
  • Scrapbook paper of your choice
  • Silver spray paint
  • Pine cones
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Hot glue gun or floral wire
  • Paintbrush

IMG_2791I wanted to give the wreath a bit of a winter feel – so I spray painted some pine cones with silver. I figure this will last me well into February (could I dare go into March?).

IMG_0579Trace your wood letter onto the back of the scrapbook paper with a pencil. My wood letter was already white . . . you can paint yours any color you like.

IMG_2920Mod Podge the paper to the top of the letter. Let dry for 15 – 20 minutes, and then put a coat on the top. You’re nearly there!

IMG_2956Hot glue the letters and pinecones to the wreath. Now here’s a little secret – I only used enough hot glue to tack the items down, but I didn’t go crazy with it. This is so I can remove the pieces from the wreath and change it up later! This is an option, or you can also use green floral wire to accomplish the same task.

I don’t say this very often, but The Wreath Depot exceeded my expectations. I’ve had some so-so experiences ordering plant life online (stories for another time), so I wasn’t sure what would arrive in the mail. My wreath came quickly and it was better than I expected!

    I love the eucalyptus wreath you used. I’d either go with that or the Cranberry Silk Christmas Door Wreath.

  2. Toni says

    Chipotle Eucalyptus Wreath would be the one for me. I would embellish it and leave it up all year long.

  3. Angi says

    The eucalyptus wreath is gorgeous! Would love to win that to hang on my door and smell it all the time!

  4. Shirley Howington says

    I love the door wreaths. I really like the seasonal wreaths. I think they are all great.

  5. Lisa Dennis says

    I would definitely choose the Elegant Cinnamon Boxwood Holiday Wreath 22 in! I love the smell of Cinnamon and can only imagine how great this would be!

    Okay… say what!?!? There’s something called the Wreath Depot? Well, hook me up, Amy – this is the kind of fix that THIS wreath junkie could use.

    I would love the Heartland Wreath. It’s so gorgeous and would be perfect for the spring decor I’m planning. Thanks for the giveaway, lady!
