I was looking to make something that was fun and screamed that spring is finally here for my front door.  I purchased a large chipboard initial from the craft store, as well as a bright green cotton yarn.

With my handy dandy hot glue gun I set to work covering my letter D.  I’m not going to lie, it was tedious.  But I did it in segments of about 20 minutes every couple of days, which made it more manageable.

I wanted to see if I could make it so that the pinwheels would still spin on the monogram.  I decided to just cut off the pick with a pair of large scissors.

Then I just hot glued them into place, being sure to hold them upright until the glue set.

Then I just added a matching polka dot ribbon and bow and hung it on my front door.

I love how it came out.
