Blooming Flower Letters

Made with foam letters, this bright floral decoration is lightweight enough to hang from a doorway or even float in a swimming pool. Make a single standalone letter, or craft an entire sign.

Introduction

This beautiful floral project comes from Crowns by Christy. 

materials

  • Foam letters
  • Flowers (fresh or faux)
  • Straight pins
  • Garden shears
  • Monofilament

steps

  1. Prep your sign by deciding the layout of flowers on your foam letter. (Tip: For a balanced mix of flowers, it helps to start with bigger blooms and fill in the gaps with smaller blooms.)

  2. Trim the stems off of the flowers, allowing the blooms to lay flat. (Tip: larger blooms that sit flat like daisies and mums work best.)

  3. Using straight pins, pin each bloom to the foam letter, one by one, until the letter is covered in flowers.

  4. Reinforce with pins as needed.

  5. When each letter is finished, you can string them together using monofilament to create a floating sign (or in our case, the hashtag to our #BloomingenBlanc summer party). Monofilament is also then used to anchor the floating hashtag to the edges of either side of the pool.
