Weekend Project: Preppy Initial Wreath

You know you want one!

This preppy initial wreath is featured on Pink and Polka Dot's blog...her instructions are to open a wire clothes hanger with pliers, shape it into your letter, wrap it all the way around with garland (hot glue gun at the ends?), then grab a yard of wide ribbon to hang your masterpiece.

Another wreath tutorial with a few more step-by-step photos:

Thrifty Decor Chick has typed up all the details to make-your-own Christmas initial wreath on her blog too. While you are there, see her tips for decorating our glass china cabinets for Christmas - this is so inspiring!

I know I have an old wire hanger and I know I have some old garland that is just waiting for a new life as a big letter on our front door. I'll let you know how it turns out. This weekend is Christmas decorating time, or it will never get done!


  1. You bet I want one... off to the craft store!!

  2. I can't wait to see your wreath on your blog too! I just opened the JoAnn's catalog and all garlands are 66% off this weekend.

  3. LOVE the wreath! What a cool idea! I NEED to do that.

    The G'burg Aquarium is so much fun. We haven't been in a while, but need to go back.

    And . . . thanks so much for telling your readers about my Cyber Monday sale! :-)
