Hello everyone! I am crafting once again, and this time my love for flowers has taken over. I can’t stop making flower covered letters! Whether it is the first letter of my name (B, obviously) or in this case the letters for my club at school, Her Campus, I love covering wooden letters with flowers for a fun, girly look.
As you may have seen in my previous room decor post , I have a pink B on my wall. I made it last year to brighten up my dorm, and I even made a purple one for my roommate because they are just too easy.
Plus, I found a totally cheap way to do it. Hooray $$$.
Wooden letters are incredibly cheap from Michaels and easy to find in every size.
Pro tip: Get the Michaels App, it always has great coupons that you can use anytime!
As for the fake flowers, they can get pretty expensive from a craft store such as Joann’s and Michaels, so when I found flowers at the 99 cent store and the Dollar Tree, I was so excited! This project of two flower covered letters only cost me $12.
Here are the flowers that I purchased. Don’t get large flowers or you will not be able to identify the letter underneath! Get various colors, types and sizes of flowers.
Take the flowers off of the stems and throw the stems away (Unless you have another project for them, but we won’t be using them here.) Cut the tips off of what is left on the stem, so that the flower can lay flat on the letter.
Put hot glue on the bottom of the flower that will be touching the letter, apply liberally so your flowers don’t fall off.
Hold down the flower where you want it on the letter, and watch your fingers. (This is where I burnt myself plenty of times… whoops!)
Continue gluing on flowers close to each other. Make sure each flower is a different size and color than the last, but save the smallest flowers for last.
Glue your smaller flowers in the cracks of the bigger ones. This will make it so that you can’t see any of the original letter.
Tip: Take the flowers apart if some are too big for a space that you want them in.
Hang them on a wall or place them on your table and enjoy their beauty!
