I started out with a black letter from either Joann's or Michael's and did some stenciling using a stencil from Martha Stewart and some Ranger distress crackle paint in vintage photo.
This is a close up of the crackle effect. It isn't very pronounced but I thought it looked pretty cool.
Cool huh? I didn't want to glue the letter on so I added some twine to the back with some gorilla glue and tied it around the wreath. That way if I ever decide to change things up it won't be difficult to remove. Yes I know how ugly the back is and I don't care. You can't see it.
