The Pin: “The Blooming Monogram”

While browsing Pinterest, I came across this really cute Mother’s Day project called Blooming Monogram and I decided I would give it a try. Now, because Mother’s Day has already passed, I went in a more personal direction and decided this would be a cute personal monogram idea. So, let’s get started!

Supplies:

cardboard letters
craft glue (or a hot glue gun)
flower foam
fake flowers
scissors
sharp knife (or exacto knife)
 
 
 

Step One:

Carefully make an incision in the lower corner of your letter and pull back the top layer of cardboard to reveal the hollow insides. Pull it back slowly to avoid any unwanted tearing and it should look like the picture on the right! (you can clean up the edges by ripping off the extra left behind)

Step Two:

Measure and cut your flower foam to fit inside of your letter (check out my concentration face). Once you’re okay with the positioning, use your glue to secure the foam to the inside of your letter. The corners can be a little tricky, but take your time when measuring them and they’ll fit like a glove.

Step Three:

Cut your flowers down to size and start arranging them in the foam (I used daisies, but you can use whatever you want).

And then….


Voila! Your finished product. Two beautiful blooming letters that you can prop up in your bookshelf, or hang on your wall. Too cute! (Don’t mind my wonky flowers, some of the petals were bent from laying in a bag overnight) I think I did alright, what do you think?

 

 

What flowers would you use? Try it yourself and let us know!
