How To Wednesday: Monogram Decor

Monograms are an important decoration element for any event.  They are a personalized statement that make a huge impact.  Whether you are planning a wedding, and want to spot light the family name, or throwing a party for a child, a monogram decor element is right for you!

There are so many ideas on how to decorate monograms.  There are cake toppers, signs, lighting effects, and many DIY possibilities.  Today we are going to share how to create your own DIY monogram that can be used as a wreath, or for table decor.

Things needed:

  1. Monogram wooden letter (Hobby Lobby sells large letters for 2.99)
  2. 2 bouquets of artificial flowers.  Flower and color are specific to your design.
  3. Hot glue gun
  4. Ribbon to allow the monogram to hang as a wreath. 
Once you have gathered all your items you will start by warming up your hot glue gun.  You will then take your bouquet of flowers.  

The flowers from the bouquet are easy to remove from the stems. Take each bunch of flowers and separate them from the stems one by one.  You will then have multiple bunches.  Pick up one bunch of flowers and slowly start separating them from back to front.  This will give you multiple, individual flower petals. Once you have your individual petals take your hot glue gun and place a small dot on your wooden monogram.  You will need to quickly place one flower petal on the hot glue and press down.  Continue to do this until your monogram is completely covered.  (It works best if you bunch the flower petals very tightly).  

The next step is to cut a piece of ribbon to the desired size. Once your letter is covered, and has dried, flip it over and glue the ribbon on both top sides of the monogram.  Allow the hot glue to dry, and your monogram will be complete.
