Today, Cherie is sharing her version of a Monogram covered in the most adorable and Springy flowers around. This fun decoration will surely welcome Spring and all visitors to your home with a great big “Welcome, Come On In!” Enjoy!

Nothing says Spring like flowers!
The Ribbon Retreat has so many cute flowers I really wanted to find a way to display them in a spring craft. I came up with this Flower Monogram hung by Sheer Wired Ribbon. It brightens up my whole porch and makes me so excited for all the real flowers that Spring will bring!

Start by painting your letter with some acrylic paint.  Let it dry.

When it’s dry glue the large flowers to the letter.

Add the medium flowers.

Fill in the major gaps with the small flowers. I chose to let some of the letter be seen.  You could fill it in even more if you like.

Now to make the bow. Cut a piece of wired ribbon to 3 yards. Make a loop at one end and pin it in place with a clothes pin. This will be the center loop of the bow.

Now get out your bow maker and weave in and out of the dowels.  keep the loop in the center of the bow maker. For this bow I put regular sized dowels into the last holes.

Just keep going in and out of the dowels with the ribbon.  If you want to use ribbon that has a wrong side to it twist the ribbon in the middle so that the right side is always facing you.

I went all the way up until I had six loops on each side.

Gather all the loops and pinch them in the center.

Go inside the loop and sew the loops together in the center.  Wrap the thread around the bow until it’s very tight. You can move the center loop to the side while you do this.

Fluff the bow into a circle puff.  This is why the ribbon has to have a wire edge for this bow.

I glued some strips of the wired ribbon to the letter and attached the bow. I like how they look like tails of the bow.
There you have it! The Ribbon Retreat has many other flowers and many colors to make the best Flower Monograms around!!
The amount of flowers you need will depend on what letter you do and how full you want it.
You could also do a much smaller letter and hang it on a door knob to cut down on supplies.
I hope you give this craft a try!

    What a gorgeous take on a monogram wreath, Cherie! The different-sized flowers add so much interest, and the big, puffy bow gives the wreath the perfect finishing touch. I can’t believe you used a papier mache letter! I assumed it was wood, which would have been awfully heavy and possibly damage the paint or finish on the door as it banged around whenever it was opened or closed.

    This idea would also work beautifully hanging on a wall in a girl’s bedroom! I would hang it without the ribbon and bow… or maybe not… I do love that bow!! hehe

    Thank you for another one of your wonderful tutorials, Cherie! xoxo
