Quick Door Decor

I went to Hobby Lobby last week, and as I walked down one of the aisles, some cute wooden letters with metal accents caught my eye.  I immediately thought that they would make cute non-seasonal door decor, but since they weren't on sale, I decided to wait until this when when they would be.

Today I went back and got a letter, plus some burlap ribbon to hang it on.  It took less than 10 minutes to put together and turned out pretty cute, if I do say so myself!
 
Each letter in the alphabet appear to come in these three colors...
 
They are lightweight and they hang easily.  I got the red for my mom.  It will work nicely on her door.  They have a glass storm door over their front door, so wreaths don't hang very well because they are too thick.
 
I'm thinking that for myself, I might make a burlap wreath, and hang this letter in the middle.  But that will be at some point in the future, when I have a little more time.  Right now, I'm liking just the letter.  It is a less cumbersome than a wreath on the door, but gives it a little personality all the same.
 
I bought the burlap ribbon at Hobby Lobby too, and it was 40% off. 
I probably have enough to make about 30 of these!
I just cut two pieces of the ribbon, and then I used my small stapler to staple it to the back of the letter...
 
 
Then I just tied a bow...
I used some wire and made a little hanger on the back of the ribbon, so that it would hang a little better.
 
Best part:  They are 50% off this week.  So it's only $10!!!
 
Just FYI:  Most of the letters are similar to the "F", but they are all different.  Most have the flower on them, but I know for sure that the "A" and the "G" do not.  They have a larger metal piece on them instead...
If your name begins with the letter "M" you are in luck, because I remember thinking that it was especially cute!
