I have used grapevine wreaths for many years, I love them.  They are easy to work with and I tend to like the natural elements.  This particular oval grapevine wreath I have had for about 6 years.  It has been hanging on my front door all of that time and still looks great.

Monogram Wreath Making Supplies:

I change up the decorating on it with the seasons so I try to add items that I can removed easily.  This year I wanted to add moss and at first I was thinking I would have to hot glue the moss down. The moss comes in sheets so you have different sizes to choose from. 

I started working with it, tucking and molding it around the branches of the wreath and just like that it was perfect.  NO GLUE needed.

To attach the bird nest I used some floral wire I had picked up at Dollar Tree.  I cut a piece long enough to weave through the nest then bend around the branches of the wreath.

Including a monogram on my wreath is a special touch.  The pressed board letters are perfect to add scrapbook paper with this special glue.  I already had this one covered in the blue paper from my daughters room last summer.  I decided to give it an aged look.  I used brown craft paint and a sponge brush.  At first I thought I may age just the edges but after the edges were complete I knew I wanted the entire surface aged.  If you like just the edges done you can stop there and it still looks great.

The way I aged the entire surface was by adding water to my sponge, then squeezed it out .  It allowed the paint to spread through the sponge giving a washed and worn look to the “B” that I was hoping for. Then I attached with “B” with some raffia.

*TIP* Do not rub repeatedly in one section with a wet sponge or too hard…water and paper aren’t usually friends.
