DIY Fresh Pine Monogram Materials

DIY FRESH PINE MONOGRAM

SUPPLIES NEEDED

Cardboard letter of your choice

Fresh pine swag

Hot glue, glue gun

Ribbon

We were able to find our cardboard letter at Hobby Lobby. These are typically sold at various craft stores and range in price according to size. Ours was just $2.47 and we were able to get 40% off that price with the mobile coupon. Pine swag can be found in nature for free, or you can ask a local tree lot if they have any scraps available. Both of these tips are a great way to get the supplies you need for this craft for less.

DIY Fresh Pine Monogram Just StartedDIRECTIONS

1. First, soak your swag stems in water over night. This will ensure the pine is soft and easy to work with. It will also help it last longer.

2. After 24 hours, begin snipping off pieces of pine. One inch lengths should be sufficient.

3. Lay your letter flat. Start at the bottom of the letter and apply a generous amount of hot glue. Cover a one inch by one inch square with the glue.

4. Working quickly since your glue will harden quickly, begin pressing the one inch lengths of pine to the cardboard. The pine pieces should be glued so the needles are all going the same direction.

5. Apply another section of glue and repeat. Keep applying the pine sections so they are close together, covering a small amount of space at a time.

6. Once you have covered the front of the letter, start doing the sides. You will want shorter pine pieces for this task. ½ inch lengths of pine are ideal. Apply the glue and continuing pressing on the pine to cover the space.

8. The only thing left to do now is apply a ribbon for hanging. You can either run the ribbon through the letter or glue it to the back of the letter as we did.

These fresh pine monograms are so easy to make, and can be displayed from your door, mantel, or even the back of a dining room chair. Give them a try and add the fragrance and charm of fresh pine to your home this winter season.
