Christmas Monogram Wreath

I had the idea for this wreath because I wanted to add  some sparkle to a mirror that is in my entry foyer.  I started by purchasing a  wreath and garland at Michael’s.


I attached the garland to the wreath with floral wire.  I used my Cricut to make a “F” stencil and traced it on a piece of luan board.  Then I cut out the “F” using my skrol saw.


I painted the “F” with satin white Rust-oleum spray paint. 


It is painted and ready for the wire, mod podge and glitter. 


I attached floral wire to the back of the “F” so I could attach it to my wreath. 


I covered the “F” with Mod Podge and added silver glitter to give the “F” sparkle. 



And here it is all sparkly that adds the bling I was looking for.  



It’s beautiful at night! 


I also made the  pillow in the chair.   I used white felt and snowflake sheer material to make a pillow cover for an old pillow I had.  I made a bow and tied it around the pillow.    That also adds the sparkle that I was looking for in the entry way. 

Hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful day.

  1. Oh la la! Love the sparkles. They are just right with the raw evergreen.

  2. What a fabulous idea. I love the sparkle it gives to the wreath and it is so beautiful hanging in front of the mirror. Your pillow is stunning. What a fabulous idea. Hugs, marty

  3. Oh, Gail! I love the sparkle! I would never have thought to add something like that to a wreath- it's simple but has a huge 'wow factor'! Great job!

  4. That is the sweetest wreath! I love the idea of a glitter letter embellishing the wreath..very unique.. and the darling pillow as a sparkle mate..wonderful!!

  5. I just love your wreath. I really like how you offset it on the wreath and how the wreath is hanging in front of the mirror. Looks fabulous!!!!

  6. Wow talk about beautiful! I love it!
    It is so shiny and sparkly and ... well beautiful... didn't I just say that?

  7. Wow Gail, you are amazing! Your wreath is gorgeous but I am loving that cushion-it is just so cute! What a festive area you have created!

    Best wishes, Natasha.

  8. Your wreath and pillow are beautiful. Just says welcome.

  9. Oooh, I love the F. I like that it is off-set on the wreath. And yes, it looks especially beautiful at night. Very peaceful and welcoming.

    I just purchased a table saw myself, so I'm excited to see all the cool things you can do with one.

  10. I love the F and I really love the pillow! Love the bling!

  11. Looks wonderful in the setting you put it. Sparkle always looks beautiful at light with lights or candlelite.

  12. Wow! I'm impressed! Anyone who can say "used my skrol saw" and actually know how to use one has my utmost respect!

  13. Well done and just beautiful. The letter was a fab idea. Also the sheer fabric on the felt pillow looks so pretty.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  14. Love this Gail :) It really makes a statement, and with the pillow you made alongside, it's a pretty entrance!
