DIY Rustic Birch Bark Monogram

This post is sponsored by  The Home Depot but the wreath and ideas are my own.

Psssst……I did it.

I made this rustic birch branch monogram!

Remember when I told you I was going to try to make a monogram?

I have to say I am pretty tickled with how cute it turned out.

I cut the monogram myself from wood — with a power tool I had never used before.

AND, I didn’t cut my finger off.  Yay! I can still blog! {high fives!}

It isn’t perfect, but for my first try? I’m feeling pretty good about it.

My favorite part? I covered it with REAL bark from fallen branches that I picked up during a Fall walk. 

Eek! I love love love the texture of the natural bark and moss.
