Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful day. I wanted to do a wreath for the front door this year. I started going through my inventory and found the items I thought I would need to put something new together.
A rectangular styrofoam form. A hot glue gun. A box of fall leaves from Michael's. And, of course, my big "N" that I bought at the Paper Source last week. I little while later, here is what I had.
It's really not that hard to put together. I sprayed the "N" with spray adhesive and then glittered it using gold glitter. You can use any color you want. Then I started hot gluing the leaves on the styrofoam form. I positioned the "N" and then traced around it with a black marker. Using a utility knife, I cut out the shape of the "N". Then, using a butter knife, I scooped out the styrofoam so that I could recess the letter. I glued some more leaves on around the perimeter of the letter outline so they would fill in the edges when I place the letter inside the cutout. Then I finished gluing leaves on the form. Once that was done, I hot glued the letter in place and, voila, a new wreath for the front door. A festive wreath without spending an enormous amount of money. Plus you will take pride in knowing you put it together.
