DIY Monogram

So y'all know how much I just love Pinterest.  I decided to finally make my diy monogram letter for my front door. And I just love how it turned out! It is fairly simple to make. Ive seen pictures of these on pinterest and etsy, but I liked making one instead of buying it.  So all you need a few supplies.  

About 2 rolls of Jute.  You can get these at the dollar store for about $.99 each. 

Your monogramed letter of choice. I got mine at Hobby Lobby for about $1.50.  Some tutorials called for paper mache letters, but I choose to go with the wooden. 
And a hot glue gun. You can get these at Walmart for fairly cheap. 

I just hot glued the beginning of the string before I started wrapping it around the letter down.  I used the hot glue every so often to keep the jute holding on the wood. Even though you are wrapping it pretty tight, you still want to tack it down.  I wrapped the letter two times in jute to make sure I got all of the wooden covered.  

Once you are down wrapped the letter with jute, take some ribbon and make a hanger and cute bow.  Then you are done. I think over all this took me about 2 hours.
