What am I doing on a Saturday Night during a Pandemic? Well, coming up with another DIY for my fellow crafters! 🌙😊
With the dog days of summer are waning, and fall quickly approaching, this DIY can be on your fall bucket list if you aren’t too busy. Heck, in writing this, it could easily be done with fallen leaves.
This DIY is very inexpensive and quick. You may find that working with the sticky glue can be tricky, but it is nothing a 2nd grader couldn’t handle with aplomb! You’ll just need 4 items, and most likely, you will have 2 out of the 4 around the house already.
Time it takes: approximately 15-20 minutes
Dried Flowers 💐
A Particle Board Letter
So, it’s important that the flowers are dried out already. They will easily crumble so be very gentle with them. I had some crumble as I was making my letters, but it was kinda an easy fix. Just place more glue over the crumbly bits and add another petal.
Basically, you use a Q-tip and slather the glue on in 1 inch spots where you’d like to add dried flowers, then carefully arrange your flowers accordingly. I like to work from the corners and outside in, much like working a large puzzle. You’re just adding the petal pieces.
Feel free to add in some other greenery to your heart’s content. Truly, you are only limited by your imagination. The E6000 takes a while to dry, but when it does, you have a beautiful dried floral letter!
I made one large one as a housewarming gift and the other little L is going to spell out Lily for my step daughter.
