Burlap and Bling

Since I've pretty much covered the walls in our house with photographs of travels, deer heads from hubby hunting, a few projects and a wall of crosses, I'm now moving on to decorating the front door.  I guess that means it's time for a bigger house ;-)

Here are my supplies from Hobby Lobby, I decided to choose the scrapbook paper first (for the "L") and then match the ribbon, cross, and flowers from that.  

 I left the plastic wrap on the wreath so it would be easier to wrap with the burlap ribbon.

I traced the "L" on the back of the scrapbook paper and then cut it out and used wood glue to stick the two together.


 Next I wrapped the ribbon on the top of the wreath.  I used a staple gun to fasten everything to the backside.

I just tied these pieces into knots and stapled it in the back.

With the left over scrapbook paper I cut little triangles and fastened them over a leather string. I used the back side of the paper so it wasn't too matchy matchy with the "L"

I used  smaller ribbon to hold the "L" on.  1. I couldn't figure out how to make it stay 2. It added a little more flare ;-) (hot glue may have been the way to go)
Final result!!
