“If It’s Not Moving… Monogram It!”

For all my southern belles with a monogramming addiction, this post is a must-read! There’s just something stunning about the way your initials can add a classy, personalized touch to just about anything.

With a million-and-one different ways to display your initial pride, whether you have them on your car or on your t-shirt, one of our favorite ways here at Page 6 is to dress them up with flowers! This simple, DIY project is the perfect way to add a cute, feminine sense of spring.

So let’s get started!

You can cut out any shape, letter(s), etc. of your choosing with your cardboard, however, for this post I am cutting out a single letter N, as in Natalie.

1. For the structure of my monogram I used one medium-sized piece of cardboard and a pencil to trace out the letter N. Once I was satisfied with my letter, I used the scissors to cut it out.

2. Next, I pulled the faux flowers off of their stems; you can either pull the stems fully off or keep the part attached to the flower. Whichever way makes it easier for you to glue the flower down.

3. Now its time for the fun part! I like to arrange the flowers around before I glue them down to my letter just so I can make sure it looks the way I want it to be. Once you find an arrangement to your liking, use the hot glue gun to cover your monogram in the flowers. Try to add as many as you can to avoid leaving empty space!

Voilà! You are all set to go with a stylish, personalized piece of art!

Hope you enjoy!

Kisses,
Natalie
