Make a Monogram From Faux Flowers and Cardboard!

In this post: Make a monogram from faux flowers and cardboard and then frame it with a vintage frame for simply stunning spring wall art!

I think that the best part about any project is putting your own spin on it. Whether you’re DIYing a shelving unit or just making a little keepsake, personalizing something is so much more fun! Like this pretty framed monogram from faux flowers and cardboard!

3. Hot glue faux flowers onto monogram cardboard cut out. You can either lay them out before hand in their entirety or you can wing it and just glue one on at a time.

My kids did point out that my letter ‘S’ looked a bit more like a crazy floral 8 than an S, but I like it anyway.
