Then, prepare the hollowed out cardboard letter for the silk flowers by inserting some flower foam into the letter. Cut the flower foam to fit inside the letter, and then glue the foam inside the letter with a hot glue gun. Now you’re ready to create your silk flower monogram in the design pattern that you desire.
You might want to play around with your silk flowers first to determine how you want them to be arranged to form your letter before sticking them into the foam. Additionally, trim the stems of the silk flowers with a pair of wire cutters before hand, making sure you cut them at an appropriate length to stick within the flower foam so that the flowers will lay flush against the foam. When you’re ready, insert the silk flowers into the foam in the arranged design that you wish. You can use a hot glue gun to secure any loose petals or leaves that are sticking up from the foam. When you’re finished, you’ll be able to hang your silk flower monogram wherever you want it.
