Draw or trace your monogram onto your cardboard piece – in whatever style letter and to whatever size you wish! I made the ‘H’ to be 8.5 inches tall by 8.5 inches wide to fit perfectly in my frame at home.
Cut your letter out using a box cutter, X-acto knife or a simple scissors. Try to get as close as you can to your monogram but it does not need to be perfect because you are going to cover it up – so any imperfections or errors will not be shown.
You may want to lay out your flowers on your letter ahead of time so that you have an idea of where they will all fit. This is not necessary but definitely helps to see how your big flowers and little flowers, along with what colored flowers, all work together to make the perfect layout and color scheme. This layout might change later, but it will at least give you a great starting point.
If you do not lay out your flowers beforehand, I would recommend starting with all of your larger flowers and then once those are hot glued down you can begin to fill in gaps with your smaller flowers or bows.
One by one, hot glue your flowers and other embellishments into their places. During this step, be sure that you are placing your flowers in such a way that no cardboard will be seen when your letter is hung up.
Once your DIY flower monogram letter is completed, it is time to hang it! You can take lace or grosgrain ribbon and attach it to the back of your floral letter to hang it by or simply nail it to the wall with a beautiful frame around it to showcase your new floral letter wall art home decor piece.
