DIY: Burlap and Holly Berry Letter

20 Nov

On a recent trip to Michaels, my mom and I both bought some really big, really cool wood letters for around $2. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it at the time but I figured I would figure something out. While browsing Pintrest, I found this picture and fell in love.

Since we are moving into the Christmas season, I decided to keep the rustic feel of my inspiration letter but take it into a more Christmas-y direction. Here is what I used:

I also used a small piece of sandpaper to rough up the letter a little bit to give it that vintage look. I also turned to Pintrest to figure out how to make a burlap bow. This tutorial was great.

She used burlap ribbon but I didn’t have any so I just used actual burlap. Also, she used floral wire which I also didn’t have (and was too lazy and cheap to go out and buy) so I just hot glued the entire thing. Here is the final product!

I’m really pleased with how it turned out! It has surely got me in the Christmas spirit!
