EVER SO CLEVER…EVER SO PRETTY…Friday Series, #1 {Moss Covered Monogrammed Wreath}

Welcome to my first “Ever So Clever, Ever So Pretty” series….

…..I am always in awe of the many clever and talented bloggers…

I am always saying…”that is really a great project..I really need to do that”!…but do I do it…??

…..sometimes!

So this series will force me to “just do it”….

This week has been hectic with many things happening…like preparing for the opening of my antique booth…

So I chose a pretty simple, but great project!

The inspiration comes from two bloggers….11 Magnolia Lane and My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia...and a blogger’s sister.. Common Ground

Here are their projects that inspired me…

So here I go…making my version of the moss covered monogram…

I decided to incorporate the monogram in a wreath.

Supplies…Grapevine wreath…sheet moss…wooden letter.

Now you are probably wondering why I am not using my new craft table…?!!…

…..It’s because it is filled with things to take to my booth!…making tags!

I bought a regular grapevine wreath…but I prefer the ones that are wispier…but they are more expensive…

…..so I take my wire cutters and snip at the vines

So clip and pull the vines away…you can get that “wispy” look without the “wispy” price!

I then proceeded to cover the wood monogram with the sheet moss…using a glue gun.

I hung it below the mantel…It may eventually go onto the shutters above the mantel…
