Just in time for the first day of fall, I took some inspiration from Pinterest and whipped up a super-easy fall monogram!
The original “pin-spiration” came from our dear friends at BHG:
This was such a ridiculously simple and cheap DIY project using paint, ribbon, and hot glue that I already had, combined with a paper board letter and two packets of faux leaves from JoAnn. With a coupon, the supplies were a mere $5.
- Paint the front and sides of the letter. The back won’t be visible, but the front may peek out from behind the leaves. I mixed a little gold paint in with some chocolate brown paint for a little extra sparkle.
- Once the paint is dry, use a hot glue gun to layer on the leaves.
- Attach a ribbon to the back with a little hot glue.
- Hang it and admire your quick handiwork!
I painted the letter the night before simply because I have a limited nap window to work in. Once I started gluing, it probably took 30 minutes to complete (placing those leaves where I wanted them took a little longer than expected). Overall, still a quick project. Since the letter is made of paper, I hung it on an interior door:
Did you make or buy a new wreath this fall? We’ve put the same fall wreath on our front door year after year, so it was nice to make a little something new this time, even if it’s just seen inside the house.
