When I was at Hobby Lobby I saw these letters.
I'd seen on a few blogs people using letters in their wreaths. Allison LOVES monograms & initials so I thought it would be a perfect surprise for her! The "H" was made of some sort of particle board type stuff but it was this wood color. My first thought was that I'd cover it with scrapbook paper but I wasn't sure how that would hold up & I didn't see any paper that I liked. So I moved on to the glitter area. Now, I'm sure all of you crafty types know all about the greatness that is glitter glue but I'd never heard of it! This stuff is AWESOME!! They even had it in orange!
I had some "umber" colored paint so I applied it to the "H", let it dry & then applied the glitter glue. I had some regular red glitter so I added some of that too. I was very pleased with how it turned out.
Here's the whole wreath.
