One of my favorite pieces in Stella's nursery is the floral "S" that hangs above her crib! I purchased the materials and decided to try it out after admiring a moss covered letter I saw on a wedding Pinterest board. I was blown away with how easy and effortlessly beautiful it was!
I absolutely love how the piece turned out! It would also be perfect for a baby shower or wedding as well! You could easily swap out the flowers for greenery or succulents and it would be great in a living room or kitchen as well!
-box cutter or scissors
-hot glue gun
-fake flowers or greenery of your choosing
1. Start by removing the front surface of the letter by cutting around the front edge with your box cutter! This will leave you with a hollowed out letter that you can now fill with flowers!
2. Use your glue gun to fill in the letter with floral foam. I used a low temp gun because some of the foam would melt from the heat of the gun if it was too hot. You could also try using a spray adhesive!
3. Cut down your fake flowers or greenery using your wire cutters. You are going to want to leave an inch or two of stem to insert the flower into the foam. I sorted my flowers into piles by color/ size and filler.
4. Begin assembling your letter. I started by taking my favorite large flowers and spacing them out along the form, and then went back in and began adding in the smaller flowers and leaves to fill the entire letter. Simply put a swipe of glue on the stem before inserting the flower. I chose to add an additional spot of glue here and there on the back of the flowers to ensure that they would stay put!
This is such an easy project that yields such beautiful results!! It is perfect as is, or you can attach it to a canvas or pallet board for a larger statement piece! I had pallet boards laying around in the back yard, so I decided to make a backdrop for my "S." I stained each board, and assembled them together using metal strapping.
If you try out this project, share your photos!! I can't wait to see how they turn out!!
