DIY Holiday Wreath

The holiday's definitely bring out the crafting itch in me. I mean, I'm always crafting and personalizing our first apartment together as you can see here, here, and here. I of course had to create a new wreath for the holidays and retire my Alabama wreath I made for my husband.

I did tons of research (read: Pinterst) on how I wanted my wreath to look. Something that obviously showed off our monogram and had a little rustic flare. And I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out!
Pretty ain't it?? :) I thought so too. I won't lie that when my husband saw it he said "You're trying to keep me from going to work aren't you?? I'm going to be so distracted from the glitter and shininess of this, I won't be able to walk out the door!" Heh. Heh. Heh. May or may not have been my plan.

Everything I got is from A.C. Moore. Then again, all of my Christmas and other holiday decor comes from there as well. I go there on a weekly basis.
The supplies you will need:
  - Twig 18in wreath
  - Letter M
  - Hot glue gun
  - Green glitter shrubbery
  - Metallic gold leaves and holly
  - Red holiday ribbon
  - Floral wire
  - Red paint and glitter

The key is for this beautiful masterpiece is that you can stick all of the shrubbery, leaves, and holly into the twig wreath. But what I did, just for good measure, was attach with floral wire as well so that all of the pieces would stay in place once I've retired the wreath for the season.

I've had this up for three weeks now and everything is still in tact!
