How to Make a Letter-Shaped Greenery Wreath

Save

Letter-shaped wreaths are a modern take on the traditional round or oval-shaped wreath. These wreaths are easy to create at home, and may be as simple as a wreath base covered with artificial greenery. Artificial moss, ivy or boxwood is the perfect addition to a letter-shaped wreath, making it suitable for indoor or outdoor use and adaptable to any seasonal or everyday decor. Letter-shaped greenery wreaths can be hung individually or grouped together to create personalized monograms, names or words for your home.

Things You'll Need

  • Letter stencil
  • Extruded polystyrene foam board
  • Craft knife or other sharp cutting instrument
  • Artificial greenery of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun (optional)
  • Floral wire (optional)
  • Ribbon
  • Select a stencil for your chosen letter. You may purchase a premade letter stencil at a craft store or create your own by choosing a letter and font on your computer, enlarging the letter to the desired size and printing.

  • Position the stencil on the foam board and carefully cut out the shape of the letter with a craft knife or other sharp cutting tool to create a wreath base.

  • Trim greenery to desired height with scissors. Shorten or remove stems, if necessary.

  • Arrange greenery on the wreath base in a visually appealing pattern before attaching it. You may apply as much or as little greenery as desired, but make sure to cover any visible areas of the wreath base.

  • Attach greenery to the wreath base by inserting the stems directly into the foam or securing them with hot glue or floral wire.

  • Examine the finished wreath for bare spots or areas that need additional trimming and make any necessary adjustments before hanging.

  • Hang the finished wreath with ribbon, if desired.
