Fall Wreath [tutorial]

So I decided to start on our fall wreath for our home! I saw this idea on Living Life Crafty !! Thought it was way cute so I wanted to make my own and put my own spin on it a little! Instead of making a “Thanksgiving” wreath I decided to make a Fall-ish looking wreath (colors, hardy looking wreath etc)! I am going to make a Thanksgiving one too but this might be my “September” wreath for next year! It was super easy to do and fun!  Let me know what you think!!

What you will need:
  • Wreath
  • Monogram Letter
  • Paint
  • Ribbon
  • Buttons
