Wreath Making Directions:
- Take your wooden letter and choose the direction you want to wrap your yarn/twine (you can go horizontally or vertical), than start wrapping it with it, using every now and then some hot glue to secure the material to the letter. Try not to leave any blank spots. If you want your letter to have sections with different colors, just cut the yarn or twine at the point you want the next color to start and continue with that color.
- Once done, you can wrap it once more to make sure you have a nice finish. You can alter the wrapping direction or continue in the same way.
- When you are happy with the look of your letter, it’s time to add your embellishments. Rustic or silk flowers look great with twine, but you can choose whatever you believe will suit your home. Use twine/yarn or hot glue to secure them to the letter.
- Tie the ribbon into a bow and glue the ends together so you can hang your wreath.

Adorable craft project! Just stopping by to say thank you for participating in the #HomeMattersParty this week and I hope you’ll come back next week.

This door hanging is very attractive. The jute twine adds a nice texture to the giant letter, and the ribbon and minimal flowers add just enough color and pattern. It’s give a nice, welcoming feeling to the front entry.
