DIY Project from Alyson of Richmond Real Estate Mom

The holidays might be over, but this wreath project could done with some ivy or spring flowers! Check out the awesome decoration that Alyson put together! 

Hello fellow Virginia bloggers! I am so happy to have discovered this blog and community for all things blogging in good ole VA!

I write the blog Richmond Real Estate Mom. I feature posts on a variety of topics including the current housing market, interior design and staging, thrifting, easy DIY projects, a weekly menu planner, and motherhood.

I recently saw this letter wreath on Pinterest and decided to give it a whirl. I have always loved the ones seen in Ballard Designs but didn’t want to spend the money.

Pinterest

I got my letter at Hobby Lobby. They were around $12 but I had a 40% off coupon so I paid a little over $7. Then the garland was 50% off at Hobby Lobby and I bought it 15 feet long.

At first I started wrapping it all the way around and it was too cumbersome and I quickly ran out of garland. So I started doing the front only and zigzagging it around the S. I used my glue gun and staple gun to hold it in place.

Then I decided to hang it on my back storm door and so the back would be visible when leaving our house.  I went back with some cheap Dollar Tree garland (one package was the exact right amount) and glued it to the back of the S.

I attached it with ribbon also found at Hobby Lobby.

Enjoy,

Alyson @ Richmond Real Estate Mom
