Floral Monogram Wreath

Looking for a way to spice up your boring door? Try a wreath. And what better way to personalize your door than with a monogram? Here is a simple tutorial on making your own floral monogram letter to hang on a door. This craft project is based off of a post onĀ annmarieandme.blogspot.co.uk.

First, find a sturdy cardboard or paper mache letter. You can buy them online or at stores like Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

Then, using a box cutter, cut off the top face of the letter to make the letter hollow.

Then, as the picture above shows, cut up green styrofoam to fill the space inside your letter.

The next step is to pick your favorite flowers to stick inside the styrofoam. For this tutorial I found some faux flowers to use so the wreath will laster longer.

Cut stems if necessary and stick the flowers into the styrofoam. If the flowers do not have stems, attach them to the wreath with a hot glue gun.

Simply fill the inside of your wreath with as many flowers as you like. Glue ribbon or twine to the back of the letter so it can hang on a door. To make a more seasonal wreath, try using leaves, berries, or other types of foliage instead of flowers.

Happy decorating,

Olivia
