Day 21: A whole lot of flowers…

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

This is the final craft I made for the
Crafting Over Sweeting Challenge.
Twenty-one days just flew by and I just can’t believe that is over. This featured craft is the:

Floral Monogram

If you recall, I had a whole lot of flowers left over from this craft and
I had been thinking and thinking about what to do with them.
I just love their colors and I didn’t just want to throw them away… what a waste!
I decided that I really wanted to use them in a monogram and this was the result.

For this craft you will need:

Flowers… lots and lots
*choose any color and variety you would like. Make sure to cut them down as close to the flower as you can.*
1 large cardboard letter
*JoAnn’s Etc… I love that store!*

Hot glue gun
*with tons, and I’m talking TONS, of glue. I almost used up a 30 pack of glue sticks… so stock up!*

Start gluing your flowers on.
I started on the sides, but then decided to do the top of the letter first.
**This is where you’re going to want to turn a movie on…
my movie of choice was The Proposal.**

Keep gluing

and gluing.

Did I mention to keep gluing?
Good, I didn’t think that I had.

That’s it!!

So simple and it turns out oh so beautiful.
I’m excited to finally have a monogram in our home!

Happy Crafting!
