Knock Off Ballard Letter Wreath

I was looking for a wreath to place on the front door of the house that could be attached to the door. The door I have is not a normal square, so the wreath hangers do not work on it.

I was inspired by the letter designs at Ballard, but did not want to pay the price. Enter Hobby Lobby! Here is what I got to make this.

Large Letter - $5 (half off at HL)
Pine Roping Material - $2.50 again half off, could use any type of garland material
Left over gold string and small ornaments from my stash
Glue Gun

Here is the inspriation from Ballard Designs.

Here are the materials I stated with. I just cut strips of the pine roping to fit the letter and used the glue gun to place it. I realized as I was doing it that the letter would stand out more if I added a bright string to it, hence the gold that was added and then the ornaments I had in my xmas leftovers.

Here is the result!

And now Placed on the front door. :)
