DIH Monogram Wreath Tutorial Video and A Winner!

This post is sponsored by The Home Depot, but the opinions are all my own.  Last night was my first Do-It-Herself Workshop.  It was an absolute blast! (If you're not familiar with DIH Workshop, click here for more info).  Before I get into the details of the event I co-hosted, I'd like to share the video tutorial of my DIH Monogrammed Wreath.  This video documents the steps I used to put my own spin on wreath project taught at this month's DIH Workshop.

Here is a still image in the event you would like to pin…

I enjoyed this project so much that I didn't stop with just one wreath.   Click here to check out another DIH Monogrammed Wreath I made with a spin. 

Here is a recap on my DIH Workshop experience.
When I arrived at The Home Depot last night, I was immediately greeted by this… 

The fabulous team at the Canton, Michigan store made myself and all our guests feel so welcome. 

Laura, the store manager presented me with my very own orange apron adorned with custom flare (as my friend Kristin refers to it).  

Waiting for our guests was a delicious spread of desserts, coffee and cute swag bags.
The management team was there to make everyone feel at home.  

How adorable are these orange chair bows? 

Here is a quick shot of myself with my Home Depot co-hosts Laura, Vikki and Ellen before the workshop began.

 We had a fabulous turn out for the event.  It was amazing to meet my friends/blog readers in person.  

We learned so much from the informative demonstration by the pro's at The Home Depot and Dremel.  I had a chance to pipe in with design ideas, tips for customizing your wreath project and to share my thoughts on finding project inspiration.  I also gave an impromptu bow-making tutorial. 

(These were some of the awesome door prizes given away at the event).

During the workshop, we had the opportunity to practice with and learn how to use the Dremel tool by the Dremel experts themselves.  

It was so much fun to see the ladies use power tools for the first time and realize that they really aren't all that scary. 

One of my favorite things about this entire experience was using these tools for the first time myself, and documenting it on video.  This was my first time using a jig saw and the Ryobi Multi Tool.  {I've used the Dremel in past projects, but this time I had a chance to use it in new ways}.   The DIH Workshop is a great opportunity to learn how to use tools under the supervision of a pro.

Now, for the randomly chosen winner of the $100 gift card to The Home Depot…

  1. Sounds like you guys had a blast. I was the only person at the workshop at my Home Depot, but it was great getting one-on-one instruction on using the tools and the wreath I made came out awesome!

  2. I am so jealous. I attended my Home Depot in Rogers, AR but they were not prepared for any event. It was supposed to start at 6:30 and at 7pm they had random employees gathering supplies and trying to find a place to do the workshop. There were no managers coming to explain anything to us. We were just told to wonder around the store and check back. Very disappointed :(

  3. What font and program did you use for the letter? What font size was the first "M"?

  4. What font and font size did you use for the first "M"? Did you use Word to print it?

  5. So cute! I really think I will try my hand at making one for my Mother-in-law!

  6. Without you as a special guest, our HD workshop was not nearly as fancy! But it was still lots and lots of fun, and we had a great time!

  7. I wish our HD was like yours. Ya'll really had good turnout. Everything was set up so nice. I bet it was a great learning experience plus fun. You did an excellent job with your monogram wreath. I'm going to have to make one of those.
