Personalize the entrance to the ceremony or reception in an instant with store-bought wooden initials.


  • Store-bought wooden initials

  • Wide satin ribbon

  • Hot-glue gun (optional)

  • Over-the-door hanger

  • Pinking shears

  • Self-adhesive felt pads


  1. To display, loop wide satin ribbon around each letter. Knot ribbon at least one foot above letter, leaving ends long enough to create a bow (for letters that aren't easily looped, hot-glue ribbon to letter's back, and tie into a knot); hang on an over-the-door hanger.

  2. Tie ribbon ends into a bow and trim with pinking shears. Attach self-adhesive felt pads to backs of letters to protect door.
