spring craft diy: floral monogram


Did you know March is National Craft Month?

Well...it is!  :)

And in honor of it, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores challenged their team of bloggers to create a project inspired by one of the trends featured in their spring craft site.  {And they've even included a coupon to get you started.  Yay!}


So in case you couldn't already tell...I chose the floral theme.

I've seen lots of pretty floral monograms and initials floating around etsy, and I've always wanted to try making one myself.

To make one you'll need:

cardboard letter(s)
enough faux flowers to cover the letter(s)
hot glue gun
scissors {optional}


Start by plucking the flowers off their stems.

My 2 year old assisted me here...for the small price of a handful of Skittles.


Some of the flowers had more stem remaining than others, so I just trimmed them with scissors to make the flowers as flat as possible.


After the flowers were all plucked and trimmed, I practiced arranging them how I thought I'd like them to be on the letter.


And then I just started to glue away.  {The whole process reminded me of when I made this wreath so long ago.}


After I glued the flowers to the top of the letter, I worked my way around the sides to fill it in more.


Such a simple project, but I love how delicate and feminine it is....I think all the moms in our life are going to be getting a floral monogram this Mother's Day! :)
