Can you believe it is already 2016? CRAZY!

I LOVE the holidays! 
I LOVE crafting and making fun new things for decorations such as #frontdoordecor

What do you think of my initial for the front door??? If you are a monogram or initial kind of gal … you will LOVE this too.

AND…the best part about it is you can make it yourself for less than $20. 

You can get the big wooden initials at Hobby Lobby for $12.99 but ALWAYS use their coupon to get 40% off (making it less than $8).

Hobby Lobby also carries the MOSSYMAT Peel N Stick product you will need. It is found in the floral area. It is truly the moss but in a peel and stick form. It is messy so make sure you put some newspaper down before you start. It is $9.99 but AGAIN use their coupon ($6.00 with coupon).

Lay your wooden letter on the back side of the peel n stick paper so you can trace around the letter. Make sure you add 1/4 of an inch around the entire letter so you can wrap the moss down the side of the letter. We do not want any wood showing. AND…make sure you turn the letter upside down before you trace so it will be facing the correct way when you want to lay it on the front of the letter. Go ahead and cut it out.
Peel the paper off and lay it moss side down. Carefully lay the letter on top of the sticky side of the moss and make sure it is centered in the middle. Use a glue gun to attach the corners properly. You can even clip the corners slightly where you need to turn the moss down.

Here is my finished product for my friend. She loved mine so much that I made it for her as a gift. I attached a burlap ribbon to hers which looks so cute. I used a wide satin white ribbon for mine. I liked that better for my front door. You can choose whatever type of ribbon you like.

ENJOY! Have fun! Make your front door the best looking front door on the street. OR…what fun gifts to make for your friends!

Thanks for stopping. Hope to see you again soon! MAMA
