Ok so I know I'm a "little late" for Christmas LOL, but it is my favorite holiday so I figured I'd share my first ever DIY Initialed wreath!! I'm absolutely obsessed with Pinterest they have SO many amazing ideas for everything...literally anything you can think of, if you don't already have one I suggest you look into it!

Any who Pinterest has awaken my inner Martha Stewart and I was inspired to make our first Christmas wreath! My husband at first was a little spectacle....but I told him to not worry I got this lol I have Pinterest! Luckily my husband is very supportive and always goes along with my random ideas and projects (: I'm one lucky girl in that sense...we always do things together like this specially for our home. Here are some pictures of the process of our BEAUTIFUL wreath! I'm so happy with how it turned out!

READY!? *Drum Roll Please* I present you with our first official Christmas Wreath!

Isn't it so pretty?! I love how vibrant the colors look! We did a great job along with my sister in law who also helped out with the polka dots (: This was very simple to accomplish and the great part is that you can customize it to your taste and play with it as you go. Everything was purchased at a local arts and crafts store called "Michaels" but I'm sure any other store with arts and crafts things will have the supplies needed. 

What you'll need:
1. Round empty wreath
2. Hot glue gun
3. Wooden initial letter 
4. Ribbon
5. Small Christmas balls
6. Bows
7. Paint markers
8. Any other cute decor you can find that you like!

How to:
What I did before I glued anything on I played around with the decoration and more or less arranged it how I liked. I decided to glue everything on the right side and leave the letter alone on the left so it looked even. There isn't a specific way to do the wreath just play with the decor you found and see how it can all fit together. I also suggest that you let the wreath dry on a flat surface for at least a day to ensure everything is glued on good. The most important thing about this is to remember to have FUN with it oh and play some Christmas music to set the mood!

Let me know what you think and feel free to share your comments
