While I was there, I picked up this adorable little wreath made from grape vines.
I had a million and one ideas as to what I wanted to do with it, but like most of my projects, I choose one idea and run with it, for better or worse.
I decided to make a monogrammed wreath, but I knew that it would not hold the weight of a wooden letter. I am not lucky enough to own a Silhouette, so I printed out a large letter M from MS Word and traced and cut it out of a piece of cardboard.
I then traced the letter on to a piece of scrap fabric.
Eight months after purchasing my very first jar of Mod Podge I finally opened it and attempted to Mod Podge the fabric onto the cardboard letter.
While the Mod Podge dried I made a couple of fabric rosettes from some other scraps. When the letter was completely dry, I trimmed off the edges where the fabric and cardboard didn’t line up correctly (and there were quite a few).
I couldn’t decide quite how I wanted the wreath to look, so after a couple of tries I ended up with this:
I will admit, it’s not as awesome as what I had envisioned, but I dig it nonetheless. One of the things we AquaSeventy6 girls live by is the mantra that design doesn’t have to perfect to be wonderful to us.
