You know that saying, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree when referring to children and their parents? Well, that saying is spot on for Molly and I. She is like her mama and loves whites, florals and anything vintage shabby chic. We are in the process of redoing Molly’s bedroom and I wanted to surprise her by making a flower monogram letter to hang on her wall. It was extremely easy to make and super budget friendly. I got most of the supplies at my local Dollar Tree and found the MDF M at a craft store. The total project cost less than $10.00 and took about 20 minutes to make. The best part…Molly loved it. These would be great to make for a baby shower, a wedding or even an anniversary. You could even make one to hang as a wreath on your front door (you guys know my obsession with wreaths!). Hope you give this a try! If you do, please share them on social and tag me. I would love to see them!
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
- MDF board letter
- Faux flowers (I got mine from the local dollar tree)
- Hot glue gun
Plug in the glue gun and let the glue stick warm up.
Begin removing the flower buds and leaves from the stems, sorting them by color.
Once the glue stick is ready, begin gluing the flowers all over the letter. I tried to vary the sizes and colors of the flowers to resemble an English garden.
Once you have all the big flowers attached, use the smaller ones to fill in the holes. It should be full and lush.
Once the letter is completely filled, flip the letter over and glue the ribbon to the back of the board on each side. Tie a pretty bow at the top and hang.
It’s that easy. Now get crafting!
