DIY Floral Monogram

Back in October, I finished my second One Room Challenge and transformed my little Emmy’s nursery into a big girl’s room. One of the DIY projects I completed in there was this floral monogram. It cost me nothing because I already had all of the materials on hand.

It gives Emmy’s room a nice pop of added color. I love how monograms personalize an item or space. Do you want to make your own? It’s easy! This is also perfect in time for Valentine’s Day if you want to make something similar using a heart instead of a letter. 

Grab your supplies:

  • silk flowers
  • box
  • box cutter
  • hot glue gun
  • optional: ribbon

I had some of these leftover faux flowers that I decided were perfect for this project.

See, those Costco boxes do come in handy!

STEPS:

  1. Trace the letter on the box. I did mine by freehand but you can print a letter out if you want to be more precise and just trace it.

2. Using a box cutter, carefully cut the letter out.

3. Pluck all the flower heads off the stems and start glueing one flower head at a time on the cardboard. I started in the middle and worked my way out.

I made the mistake of glueing my ribbon too early. I recommend doing it at the end because it can tilt heavily on one side.

After you’re done glueing all the flowers on, hang it up! You can use a ribbon or do what I did and use command velcro strips on the back of the cardboard. I decided to add a border frame around the letter and then hung that using some gray ribbon. I tacked the ribbon behind the framed wallpaper.

Simple enough right?!?

Go make your own!

Have a wonderful weekend! If you’re wondering why I have been slacking on Valentine’s Day stuff this year, it’s because I’m still recovering from my post Christmas clean up. HA! Yesterday, I went and bought some great Valentine’s Day cards from Michaels for my two older kids and they were cheap and awesome! The best part is there was no candy in it because they came in little notepads and coloring packages. I bought it at 50% off yesterday but I think today they’re even 60% off making them super cheap! So mamas, if you’re behind on life like me, do yourself a favor and buy those!

Thanks for reading, sweet friends!
