I made this beautiful mint and pink floral letter for my daughters bedroom, and it was so easy to do I wanted to share the process! With a few supplies, a small budget and less than an hour, you can easily craft one too!
What’s different about this DIY Floral Letter versus most of the ones you see on Pinterest is I did NOT use the floral Styrofoam that many of them use to stick the stems in. The main reason I didn’t is because of cost – I saved money by forgoing that step and just using my hot glue gun that I have at home. Plus, I didn’t have nearly the mess of cutting those Styrofoam blocks into the right shape!
Just follow these steps below. Happy Crafting!
- A mixture of fake flowers (I recommend using a mixture of flowers and colors to give it a more natural look)
- Wire cutters
- Hot Glue Gun
- Paper Mache 24″ letter
- Craft Paint & Paintbrush
- Paint the cardboard letter in the color of your choice. I used the Martha Stewart ‘Mint Chip’ in Pearl.
- While it is drying, use the wire cutters to cut the stems off the flowers. You want to leave about 1/2 inch of a stem below the base of the flowers.
- Punch a hole in the cardboard letter where you want to stick the flower in. I just pushed the tip of my wire cutters in to create the whole.
- Using your hot glue gun, coat the base of your flower in hot glue.
- Push your flower into the hole.
- Repeat steps 3 – 6 all over the floral letter until your flower is filled up. Once your first stem is in, you can choose your next flower you want to use, and see the spacing you need.
- Once it is filled, I used some of the empty spaces to glue down a few of the leaves from the stems to give it some more greenery.
