DIY Faux Flower Metal Letter
Happy Monday Y’all!
I’m so excited about this project I can hardly stand it!!! Well…I may be more excited that I completed an entire project ~ start to finish ~ in one weekend!!!
I’ve had my eye on these metal letters at Hobby Lobby for awhile but I wasn’t sure where I would use one in my house. And, I already DIY’ed the metal marquee anchor on my deck so I definitely wanted to do something different.
Faux flowers have really been on my mind a lot lately too and when I was looking around Hobby Lobby they had some really great ones. So I decided I would gather a bunch of fun flowers and attach them to the metal ‘H’. I also got some of the flowers at Walmart and Michael’s too.
These aren’t my typical fall colors (or any colors that I normally use) but I liked the combination of the whites and greens with pops of pink and yellow.
I also decided to write one of my favorite scriptures, Psalm 42, down the entire wall. I’m not sure why, this just came to my mind and I thought it would look really cool to span the whole wall.
I love these verses because they’re full of doubt and struggle but ultimately end in love and hope. Isn’t that what life is about? Struggle and hope to persevere?
I started with this metal ‘H’ from Hobby Lobby. It was $29.99 but I used my 40% off coupon of course!
I laid my flowers out to get an idea of where I wanted them. Then I cut them off the branches with wire cutters leaving about a 1 inch stem.
I drilled holes with different sized drill bits according to the size of the flower’s stems. I would drill a hole then put the flower in to see where I wanted the next one and and repeated until the letter was covered.
Once all the flowers were in I gently turned the letter upside down. With my hot glue gun I glued generously around the edge of the holes where the stems came through and held the stems in place until the glue was dry.
I like how you can’t see the metal from the front but you can still get a little bit of the rustic metal look on the sides.
I love the vibe of this little wall in our small dining space now! Of course I had to work around our homework schedule! I asked little man if I could erase it but he wasn’t having it :)
What do you guys think? I also made this fabric garland that I’ll post about later this week!
