The holidays are fast approaching and it is almost time to start decorating our homes. This poinsettia monogram is super easy to make and will make a BIG statement in your home for Christmas. Just grab silk poinsettias from Old Time Pottery to get started.
Start with a ton of silk poinsettias. I choose to keep mine all red however you can change this one up with whatever flowers you love. You will also need half of a sheet of foam core board. Yes that stuff in the poster board section that your kids use for school projects.
Cut a monogram from your foam core board. I just drew it on by hand. Use a pencil and draw until you like the result. Then use a box cutter blade or similar tool to cut the letter. Please use caution and protect your work surface during this step.
Pull the flowers from their stems and start applying them to the monogram. Use hot glue to secure each one and hold it long enough for it to set. They should lay over the side of your foam core board as shown below.
You should put the poinsettias really close together to make the finished monogram look really full and gorgeous. Continue around your letter.
Once you are finished, use a blow dryer to blow away any hot glue strings. Then display your letter in your home.
This HUGE letter will look gorgeous in your home this holiday season. Be sure to head to Old Time Pottery for all of your silk flower needs. Don’t love the poinsettias on this project? Pick a flower you love from Old Time Pottery and buy enough to cover your own monogram letter.
