Monogrammed wreaths are so popular now, so when I saw the new large letters from Joy, I knew I wanted to create one for spring. Here's what you need: JOY Iron-on Letter Ecru fabric dye 12" grapevine wreath Silk flowers and leaves Wired and burlap ribbons Faux bird with nest Mini foam eggs Light blue paint Hot glue Mix one cup of hot water and 1 tablespoon of dry dye. Stir to dissolve the dye and dip in the letter for a minute or two to color it. Place it on paper towels to dry.
Arrange and glue flowers on the wreath form as shown. Make a simple bow with the wired ribbon and glue the burlap ribbon around the center. Glue the bow in the center of the flowers. Cut more ribbon for the tails of the bow and glue under the flowers on either side. Sand and paint the foam eggs and glue them in the nest. Glue the nest and the bird on to the wreath, then glue the letter. If more stiffness is desired, iron the letter onto fabric-covered board first, then trim around the letter.
