Monogram Floral Centerpiece DIY
1.) Start by taking your X-ACTO knife and cut into the front of your first letter where the side and top seam meet.
2.) Steadily continue to cut along your letter’s top front seam, leaving the back and sides of your letter intact.
3.) Repeat this step with any additional paper mache letters. Don't be concerned if your cuts are not perfect, they will be hidden by your fresh flowers!
4.) Using your X-ACTO knife cut your floral foam and down to size so it fits within the hollowed space of your letter.
5.) Once you have the necessary pieces sized, carefully hot glue them into the letter.
6.) Now, repeat steps 4 & 5 for any additional letters.
7.) Next, select chosen flowers and cut them so you have the buds of the flower and a bit of the bud stem remaining. (Approximately ½ inch of stem)
8.) Now it is time to get creative! Carefully place and arrange your flowers into the floral foam. No need to secure the flowers with glue, as the foam will hold them into place!
9.) Make sure to arrange the flowers so that all of your floral foam will eventually be covered.
10.) After placing all the desired flowers into the floral foam, you should have a fully arranged floral letter!
11.) Repeat steps 8& 9 for any additional letters.
You now have a uniquely gorgeous centerpiece, perfect for a bridal shower, baby shower, or more, that will be sure to wow all of your party guests!
And knowing you hand crafted it yourself, makes it all the more special!
