Christmas Monogram Wreath

Another Pinterest-inspired project!  This was SO time consuming and labour intensive.  I've easily put 12-15 hours into this wreath, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.  This will be for our front door next christmas.  It seems counterintuitive to make an xmas project in January, but at least I was able to buy a lot of the supplies for 75-90% off!

There are WAY too many things here to list all of the supplies individually, but I'll break down some of the parts of it:

Wreath frame:  Clearance at the grocery store.  $0.84!  It had a felt bird on it, which I took off, took apart, and used for scraps.  
Monogram L:  Michael's.  MDF painted with Martha Stewart glitter paint in Antique Silver.
Ribbon:  There's SO much ribbon on this, I don't even know where to begin!  Ribbons predominantly from Michael's basic collection, Walmart basic collection, American Crafts, and Stampin' Up with some miscellaneous in the mix as well. 
Balls:  Foam glitter balls from Michael's; ornament balls (red and silver) from the grocery store.
Sprigs:  Green branch and red sequin sprigs from Michael's.  Red/green star wire garland from Walmart.
Felt:  Leftover scraps from my Grinch quilt (see a few posts back.)
Other: Jingle bells from Walmart; buttons from Fancy Pants, Basic Grey, and American Crafts; star picks by Maya Road; miniature cookie cutters from craft supply; hologram stars from Walmart; snowflakes from Stampin' Up; vinyl brads from Hobby Lobby.
