I wanted our Mother’s Day window at Urbanic to be extra special this year since my mom is flying in from Philadelphia to visit us. I had a paper mache initial on my desk that we had used as a tester in another project and I kept staring at it thinking I wanted to fill it with something. Then it hit me … blooms! It worked out so pretty for our shop window, but would also be an amazing gift to give as a monogram desk accent or wall hanging for the special moms and mom-friends in your life.
Here’s how you make it.
What You Need :
☐ paper mache letters (there are 8″ and 12″)
☐ exacto knife
☐ floral foam
☐ glue gun
☐ wire cutters or strong scissors
☐ silk flowers
How To Make :
1] Using an exacto knife, cut off the front of the letters and hollow out carefully.
2] Cut floral foam into shapes that fit letter and secure with glue
3] Trim the silk blooms off, leaving a short stem, and position into the foam. You can reinforce with glue, if necessary.
4] Arrange happily!
