DIY Flower Initial

Welcome to crafting 101 with Just Jen! I’m no Martha Stewart, but I do enjoy DIYs, especially when they’re this easy.

When we set up the nursery, I knew we’d likely be moving in 3-6 months, so I didn’t want to create something too elaborate. I wanted unique touches that could easily be moved to new digs. This hanging DIY-flower initial is the perfect personal touch to your nursery. Here’s how to do it!

Materials:

  • Your choice of faux flowers
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Hot glue gun
  • Initial stencil (I found mine here)
  • Ribbon
  • Acrylic paint & paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Wood skewer

Instructions:

  1. Lay your initial stencil on the corrugated cardboard. Using a wood skewer, trace the outline by puncturing small holes. Cut out your initial with scissors. IMG_5892
  2. Paint your initial the color of your choice – or leave it blank if you prefer.IMG_5897
  3. Cut faux flowers from stem so only the bud remains.IMG_5895
  4. Using your wood skewer, puncture hole in corrugated cardboard and pop flower bud through.IMG_5900
  5. Hot glue the back of the hole and bud.IMG_5899
  6. Repeat until entire letter is covered with flowers. Add ribbon to hang.img_5905.jpgTah-dah! An easy and pretty DIY that perfect for any nursery, and beyond!
