With spring right right around the corner, I’m so excited for bright days and pretty colors and FLOWERS! I am heart eyes about flowers. Last month I made a goal of finishing one project from a Pinterest board, and I wanted to share with you how easy peasy my DIY was! I posted this teaser for DIY floral letters on Instagram:
The different pins I’d seen were here and here.
Here’s how to make your own floral letters!
For these DIY floral letters you’ll need:
- Letters of some sort (I can’t remember where I got mine, but there are some on Amazon)
- Hot glue gun
- Fake flowers of some sort (you could get some like this on Amazon)
I’ve known I wanted to do this for awhile and have been on the hunt for the perfect fake flowers… fake flowers are SO EXPENSIVE, right?! I ended up finding some at the Goodwill Bins so I paid PENNIES for them ($1.69/lb). They were just what I never knew I was looking for!
It’s SO SIMPLE….
STEP ONE // GATHER SUPPLIES
STEP TWO // CUT FLOWERS
If you buy a stem of flowers, you should be able to pop flowers off the stem, like in the picture below. You’ll still need to cut the stem part down a little more to make sure they stick to the letters.
STEP THREE // GLUE
Apply hot glue to the back of the flower and then firmly press it onto the letters. Make sure they overlap as much as possible so that you can’t see the actual cardboard of the letter. I did a base layer and then added a few on top to give it a little more dimension. I also added a few bigger letters to give it some more character.
STEP FOUR // DISPLAY
Find a place to display your beautiful, spring flowers! I love how simple this project is and the bang you get for your buck and time – the letters are so cute and the possibilities are endless with shapes/sizes of letters and flowers. You could even attach ribbon to the back so they could hang on the wall.
Easy peasy! Happy Spring! Do your initials spell anything cool? I’ll be SO for a little while longer, then I’ll be SM… so so weird.
