THE EMERALD LETTER


Today I have a couldn't-be-easier project for you!  I've sort-of moved away from having a wreath on my front door, for whatever reason, it's just been bare for a while.  So, when I saw this project, I knew exactly what I wanted to do to liven up the porch.  


I totally copied was inspired by Mrs. Devore's monogram door hanging, chevron ribbon and all.  I'm sure I've told you this before, but I just love every project that she does!  Remember?  I featured her amazing Cozy Coupe Cupcake Car here.  

I've had my eye on this burlap ribbon at Hobby Lobby for a while, and was glad to throw some in my cart for this project.  They have tons of new burlap ribbon with fun designs on it, have you seen them?  Lots of colors too!


I wanted a large letter and didn't find an option in the size and font I wanted at Hobby Lobby, so I picked up a giant cardboard letter at JoAnn's, for about $6 with a coupon.  After a quick spray paint job, I followed the tutorial at Dwellings by Devore and made a quick ribbon bow.  Then, I just hot glued the tie to the back, since the letter isn't heavy at all.

That's it!  Now I have a little personality back on my porch, with a strong hint of what's on the inside, lots of green and black and white!  


Did you accomplish any quick weekend projects?

  4. So pretty and I love the color combination. I had a mid aisle dilemma with that same ribbon...I kept putting it in my cart, then back on the shelf. Now, I'm kicking myself for not getting it. Good thing I go up there about once a week ;) Next shopping trip!
