mom floral letters

This Mother’s Day, give Mom a sign that you love her! These lovely floral letters are so easy to make and such a great piece of décor – for a party, or year-round! All you’ll need are our wood letters plus paint and pretty flowers. We’ll walk you through our simple steps – let’s make it!
Step 1
First, paint each letter with your Mom’s favorite colors. Let dry.

TIP: Instead of a brush, we recommend using a stenciling sponge to dab paint onto the surface of each letter. This will keep the color from rolling over the sides, so your edges will stay nice and white. Let the paint dry completely, then touch up any spots that might need a bit more paint, and let it dry again.
Step 2
Next, use scissors to cut the flower heads off of your floral bush. Cut as close to each head as possible, since any stems that poke out from behind will keep your flowers from lying flat on the letters. 
Step 3
Use hot glue to fasten flowers onto each letter. You can place some alone and others in little clusters. Cut a few leaves from your bush and hot glue those on, too. 
Step 4
Let’s give them some help so they can stand up straight! Hot glue wood blocks to the base of each one on its back (unpainted) side. 
Step 5
Almost done! Now, paint over the wood blocks with white paint, to help them blend in to the background.  
Step 6
Set the sign out where Mom can see it when she walks in her home.
