I know the saying typically goes…April showers brings May flowers….but what’s a girl to do when it’s April, and you need a little flower power NOW? Flowers can quickly brighten a day and turn a frown upside down into a lovely little smile! So instead of waiting until May for a lovely bouquet of flowers, let’s bend that rule just a little bit and bring some gorgeous May flowers to our home on this fabulous April day…which happens to be a rainy April day at my house. Melanie from Find it, Make it, Love it is sharing a fabulous Flower Monogram today that is fresh and bright and just perfect for satisfying that need for some major flower power on this rainy April day! Enjoy!
Hello! This is Melanie from Find it Make it Love it.com. My sister in law Steffany and I blog about all kinds of DIY projects including fun kids crafts, home decor, and even big projects like refinishing furniture. Come on over to see more of what we do! Today, we are excited to be here at The Ribbon Retreat to share this beautiful DIY Flower Monogram! It’s so simple to make–we’re talking less than an hour from start to finish, and it’s just perfect for Spring!
Let’s get started!
Here’s what you need:
- Assorted Flowers from The Ribbon Retreat
- Paper Mache Monogram
- Craft Knife
- Craft Styrofoam
- Hot Glue
- Ribbon for Hanging
We used a 16 inch paper mache letter and about 22 flowers of different sizes.
Start by using a craft knife to cut the front off the paper mache letter.
We want the flowers to be nested in the monogram, but not all the way to the bottom of the paper mache. Use some craft syrofoam to fill the letter. We picked some up from our local Dollar Store, then cut it down to fit. You want it to come about 1/2 way up the inside of the monogram. Hot glue the styrofoam in place.
Now for the fun part! Play around with the flowers until they look good to you. Space the larger ones out, get the colors balanced. Whatever you like!
Then start picking up each flower and hot gluing them in place.
Last, we took some wide ribbon and hot glued it to the back of the monogram for hanging.
That’s all there is to it! So simple right? We sure think it’s beautiful and Springy!
We chose oranges, yellows and whites for our monogram, but of course the colors can be switched up however you want. So many possibilities! I think I’d like to make another one for one of my daughter’s bedrooms.
