When it comes to crafts and decorating, I usually find myself overthinking things. I devise some sort of elaborate plan and spend far too long on all of the difficult details when - you know what? - often simple is best! That's how I feel about this beautiful DIY Spring monogram wreath. It's so very simple to make, but the outcome is beautiful and it looks elegant and Spring-y on our front door. Best of all, it only took me a few minutes to make with the help of my Cricut Explore Air!
I was inspired to make this wreath while I was browsing Cricut's Design Space (an online hub where you can find designs, fonts and save your own designs). A monogram wreath project caught my eye - I loved how the thicker monogram was created simply with a stack of card stock letters. The "Make It Now" projects featured in Cricut's Design Space are a great place to start if you're a beginning Cricut user!
Using a faux boxwood wreath I had just purchased, I whipped up this simple Spring monogram in a snap.
Inspired by the Monogram Wreath project I found, I first laid out 4 monograms using a simple serif font in Cricut's Design Space. Then, I cut them out with my Cricut Explore Air onto some textured white card stock. I cut out 2 pages of monograms - 8 monograms all together. I had never tried cutting card stock with my Cricut before this project, and it was so neat! I'll definitely be doing this again - my mind is just spinning with all of the paper ideas I could make!
Then, I stacked and glued all 8 of the monograms together with my trusty glue gun. This creates a nice, thick monogram that looks nice and substantial on my wreath. I know that you can also cut chipboard with a Cricut, so that's next on my list to try!
To finish off this simply Spring wreath, I tied a piece of fabric through the monogram, tied a bow on top, and glued it to the top of my faux boxwood wreath.
I hung the wreath on our front door with the hope that Spring will come soon!
