It’s that time again for our Monthly Craft Bloggers Blog Hop! 12 fabulous projects to check out today! Our theme for May was “Flowers” and I am sharing this easy Blooming Monogram Door Hanging that I added to our front door in order to will Spring to get here! It must have worked because we are now enjoying green and blooms and nicer weather! Yay!
OK I have a confession….This is a lot of pink for me. When I envisioned this project, I had white flowers in my head. However if you will notice above…my front door is white also so that surely was not going to work! I also don’t like to pay much for my fake flowers so when I walked into Dollar Tree and saw this great selection of Pink fake flowers I had to give into the pink goodness this time!
- 4-5 Flower Stems (try to get a variation in sizes of flowers)
- Wooden Letter (use your coupon at Michael’s, Jo-Ann’s or Hobby Lobby)
- Hot glue gun/glue sticks
Note: I included these great pink little ball filler as well some some pink butterflies with my floral stems I bought! Get creative with what’s available!
First off you have to decapitate your flowers! I know…sounds horrible but its painless! Gently pull the flower blossoms from the stems.
Next if your blooms have the green stem on the back, snip that off as well so they sit flat on your wooden letter.
Next I simply laid the flowers out on my wood monogram and arranged and rearranged them until it was full and I liked it!
Then I simply hot glued them onto the wooden letter in their places!
To hang I just used a 3M command hook that stays on my front door year round! You could also attach a ribbon loop and bow or use a can tab on the back! The hanging is really light so it won’t take much to hold it up!
I would absolutely love it if you would also check out these other fabulous flower projects that my sweet talented friends made for the blog hop! You can click any of the photos below to be taken to their site or the links below the pictures! Be sure to pin a few while you are at it for later!
