This weekend, our box of fall decorations made it up from the basement and onto the dining room table, where it remains virtually untouched until I find the time to strategically place leafy and pumpkin-y things around our home. The one piece that I pulled out of the box is an easy fall monogram wreath that I made a few years ago.
Real life usually gets in the way of changing up my decor for the seasons, so I rely on a few favorite pieces to get our family in the spirit.
I love wreaths because they are easy to make, create visual impact, and don’t require any thought as to how to display them. Just hang and enjoy!

Fall Monogram Wreath Tutorial
First, paint the cardboard letter with your choice of paint. I prefer brown to resemble a branch. As you can see in the photo below, I chose to just paint the front side of the letter, but if you plan to hang it on a door with a window then you should also paint the back.
When the paint is dry, use your hot glue gun to apply the leaves to the letter. Layer the leaves so that most of the letter is covered.
Lastly, use your hot glue gun to attach ribbon or twine to the back.
That’s it! If you include the time it takes for the paint to dry, this project can be done in about twenty minutes.
Since this fall monogram wreath is made from cardboard, I recommend hanging it inside or under a covered porch where it will be protected from the elements. I hung mine outside just to take this photo, then moved it to a spot indoors.
Are you ready to decorate for fall or are you still savoring the last week of summer?
