Letter WreathMarch 29, 2012
The second wreath I made for my grandmother was a foam board letter. I was given the task to make a wreath for her front door that has a screen door over the front and is not a wide door. I saw plenty of inspiration on Pinterest and decided on a monogram. I went to the local craft store and couldn’t find any great pre-made letters in a font or size I wanted. (I am a font snob, by the way.)
-One foam board
-White acrylic paint
-Sketch or print out a letter you’d like to cut out. I hand sketched a letter from a font I found online that I loved. I was doing the letter R.
-After sketching, use an exacto knife to cut out the letter. This part can be tricky so make sure your knife is REALLY sharp!
-After the letter is cut out, I used sand paper to smooth out the edges (my knife wasn’t sharp enough)!
-Paint the letter the color you’d like. I went with white to really pop on the front door.
-Add ribbon and hang on your wreath hanger!
