These easy DIY flower letters are a fun craft you can do with your older kids as DIY gift for mom, to celebrate spring, for a birthday or many other occasions. I think a single initial or even a full name would be very cute as a decoration in a girl’s room. An adult will need to cut the flowers and make the hole, but the kids can easily paint the cardboard letter and fit the flowers into the holes. If you have kids who are 10 and up, they should be able to do the entire craft with adult supervision. Because the cardboard letters are less than $2, you can easily spell MOM like we did, or words like HAPPY or LOVE as well as a person’s name, their initials or monogram. Just get creative and have fun!
DIY Flower Letters materials
This easy DIY Flower letters craft requires just a few materials.
- 8-10 artificial flower arrangements.
- Cardboard letters (any craft store will have these or you can grab cardboard letters from Amazon)
- Acrylic paint
- Foam brush
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Wire cutters
DIY Flower Letters Instructions
Step 1: Using foam brush, paint letters with acrylic paint. Allow to dry for at least 3 minutes. You may want to do two coats.
Step 2: Using wire cutters, cut blooms from your flower arrangement. Most artificial flower arrangements have that thick wire, making it difficult to cut with scissors.
Step 3: Sit your cardboard letter on the table or floor in front of you. Using a flower stem, decide where you want to place it. Using the wire cutters, make a small hole in the cardboard where you decided the bloom would go.
Step 4: Using your glue gun, place a drop of glue the size of your thumbnail on top of the hole you made.
Step 5: Push the stem of the flower into the hole.
Step 6: Repeat the above steps until your entire letter is covered. You may need to trim your flowers if there is overlap that makes it hard to see what the letter is.
