Simple Fall Wreath

We've had a few chilly mornings lately and it has given me the motivation I needed to add a little fall decor to our home.  It all started with this letter I found at Michaels.  They are $6.99 and you can also use the 40% off coupon, so not a bad deal at all.  I really wanted to turn it into a front door "wreath" by covering it with moss and a few fall embellishments.  It was really simple to do and took hardly any time at all.

First I painted the edges green since the moss wouldn't be covering them. 

Then I used a roll of moss to cover the front of the letter.  You could really use any type of moss, but the roll worked really well and gave it a nice uniform look.  I found the roll at Hobby Lobby and used my 40% off coupon.  One roll is plenty to do two "wreaths" so you could do this with a friend or make a second one for a gift.  

I laid the letter face down and traced the outline with a marker.

Then I cut off the excess.

Next I liberally applied glue to the backside of the moss.  I used this glue and it worked great.

Then I laid the letter on top of the moss and allowed it to thoroughly dry.  

You could just leave it like this or even add a nice bow, but I added a few embellishments to make it feel more fall-ish.  The leaves are from the Dollar Tree and I can't remember where I found I found the acorns.  I just happened to find them in my fall stash.

Our porch is pretty well covered so I think it will hold up pretty well, but if yours isn't you could definitely use it inside too!
