DIY Floral Monogram


My daughter’s room is always a work in progress for me (a very fun work in progress for me!). Right now it is “butterflies and flowers” and the walls are light green. I’m always looking to add little accessories here and there and she's very into spelling her name lately, so I decided to surprise her with a little Floral Monogram!
I started with a Paper Mache letter I picked up from Michael’s and a bunch of different flowers (whatever is on sale will work!)
I painted the edges of the paper mache letter white since that part was not going to be covered up by flowers.
Once all the edges were painted and the paint was dry, I started pulling flowers and leaves off of the stems.
Then I started hot gluing the flowers and leaves on to the letter.
I tried to place the darker pink flowers to outline the shape of the letter then added the green leaves just as accents – if you don’t really have any order to your flowers and leaves, the monogram may turn out looking like a big floral blob with no real shape to it.
I just kept adding and gluing flowers until I was happy with it!
And now it’s sitting on her dresser in her room! It is such a simple project that just looks way harder than it is!
