Every little girl needs Flower Letters in her new room in a new house, right? Making these flower letters was super simple and it’s the perfect addition to any little (or big) girl’s room.
To make Flower Letters, you only need a few materials:
- FloraCraft® Make it:Fun® Foam Sheets 2″
- FloraCraft® StyroCutter®
- Fake Flowers (the kind that still look pretty)
- hot glue
- Krylon Shortcuts Spray Paint
I used a Sharpie to draw out the letters that I needed. I’m not good at block letter drawing, so I had to take it slow (and my letters aren’t all the same height… ssshhh..)
Using Krylov Short Cuts Spray Paint, I sprayed the edges of the foam. You don’t really need the tops or backs covered, because you’re going to cover the area with flowers.
I cut the flowers off the stems. Now, I purchased my flowers at Walmart, which is scary, I know. But, they have some pretty flowers (a few to choose from) that are 97 cents each – which, when you have to buy a bunch of flowers, is a great deal. The bunches I bought had about 10-12 flowers on each bunch, so it was very reasonable.
I stuck the flowers into the foam and made sure to fill any gaps. If you pick fluffy enough flowers, the gaps fill by default!
I displayed the flower letters on Sami’s new IKEA shelving, but might hang them on the wall eventually. One thing at a time! These flower letters are perfect for this little girl’s new room.
If you have foam sitting around, take a look at my other Flora Craft projects for inspiration!
