Mossy Monogram Wreath

I'm running late on the Christmas decorating this year.
How on earth do you people with multiple young children (especially the single mommies) do it?
I really don't know!
My house is a wreck!  I'm exhausted all the time and the only thing I really
want to do when I get home is hang out and watch Christmas movies with the Beckster. 
Instead, I end up running around like a chicken and only get the bare
necessities accomplished everyday.
We got our tree on Tuesday but it's still sitting in the corner bare as can be. 
Sunday and Monday, I managed to get some of the mantle and
the dining room done.
Here's my VERY sloppy version of a mossy monogram.
This is the second one I did.  I tried to make these months ago; got irritated
when I ended up with glue everywhere, threw them both in a bag,
and stuffed them in the closet.
This one turned out okay.  I can't even locate the first one.
I must have thrown it in the garbage.

I'm getting pretty cheap lately.
The 'M' is from the Hob Lob for like $1 and some change.
I hot glued sheet moss to it and hung it with some leftover ribbon I had lying around the house.

If you don't get tooooo close, you can't see the seams!
I love how these look but wasn't willing to pay what they sell for online.
I've got plenty more decking the halls, walls and stairs to do.  Hopefully by next week, I'll have an adorned house to share!  

Merry Christmas!
