{DIY FLORAL LETTER}




I have been obsessing over beautiful floral arrangements lately for little miss Sisilia's nursery. I LOVE the idea of adding flowers to her initials, It makes a darling statement that's also personal. Did I mention this was practically FREE? You can make one yourself for under $5. This adorable project took me under an hour from start to finish. 


First off you need:
flowers, hot glue gun, sharpies, scissors, & a sheet of cardboard.



 STEP 1:
Start by finding a variety of flowers that you like, and that look good together. I stuck with pinks, white, cream, and a hint of light green. Also get a few different sizes, adding different sized flowers into your arrangement makes a HUGE difference. Just pluck the flowers right off their stems, and remove all the leaves and clip off any extra wires. I already had these flowers on hand. You can score great flowers at DI, Craft stores [make sure to use a coupon] or even the dollar store.



STEP 2:
Draw or trace a letter onto a piece of cardboard, cut it out. OR you could purchase letters already to go at a craft store.
{Hobby lobby has some great ones! If you are purchasing your letter don't forget to download the Hobby Lobby app, you get 40% off any item} 


STEP 3:  
Start placing your flowers and gluing! I placed the larger flowers first, then filled in the rest of the space with smaller ones. 


 STEP 4:
This is the fun part, deciding where to put your letter. I am hanging mine on my baby girls nursery wall, in this darling gold frame I scored at DI for $3! 




I would LOVE to see how you completed your floral letter. If you make one for yourself PLEASE leave your picture in the comments below. It would be so fun to see how others turn out. 
XOXO

  20. Loved this tutorial, very helpful! I made an "R" and it turned out great! Even my husband loved it. I'm hanging it on my outside door. :) I couldn't find good quality flowers at any dollar store but went to Michaels since they had a sale on flowers, still a little pricey but it looked great! This would make great bridal shower or baby shower gifts as well as wedding decor! :) thanks again. My picture is below on instagram of anyone wants to take a ponder :)
    Much love!
