A Very Pinteresting Christmas: Day 7, Christmas Wreath

Today's A Very Pinteresting Christmas project, didn't exactly come from one specific pin. Maybe just pinspiration from around the boards. You know an idea of this, an idea from that. 
I wanted a Christmas wreath this year. This is the first year I have ever hung wreaths on my front door. I didn't think I could. Seriously. My front door has a decorative glass insert on it and I didn't think you were supposed to cover it up. Who made the rule of front door wreath hanging etiquette?

The wreath that adorns my door this Christmas!

Items needed: matte Mod Podge, a piece of recycled tissue paper, scissors, box knife, paint brush and a wooden letter.
Lay the tissue pare on top of the letter. Using scissors cut it a close to  letter shape as possible.
Take your box knife and carefully trim around the edges.

Mod Podge a layer over the white letter, then add the tissue paper on top. Smooth out and then layer Mod Podge over the tissue paper. A few coats should do.

After it dried I tied a piece of burlap ribbon around the top of the C- is anyone else loving burlap like I am this year? I then added the bow on the green wreath. Both items are still separate, the C and the wreath are both hanging on the wreath holder. (I might want to do something else next year, and my C can stay out until February/March with a different wreath)
