Easy DIY Year Round Wreath

I had been looking to make a wreath to keep up for all of the months in between the major holidays and decided on this design.  I absolutely LOVE our new year round wreath!  Plus, it was super inexpensive and easy to make.  

In fact, I didn't have my glue gun handy so I was able to put everything on with safety pins, which surprisingly worked.  I think you would have to use a glue gun if your letter didn't have a staple in the back of it, like mine did, in which I could slide the safety pin through and attach to one of the wood twigs after a few adjustments to make sure it was centered and level.

Since our last name is Van Buskirk, I always keep the ending of our monogram with both letters.  However, this wreath would look equally as pretty with a single larger letter, which they have different styles and sized letters to choose from at Michael's.  You could also make this more custom by spray painting the letter gold or a slate blue and by changing the flowers to hydrangeas or daisys :)

Get creative, have fun and share your wreath designs!
