Beautiful Blooms

What I love most about the Spring season, is the fresh new colors! The inspiring array of pinks and yellows and aquas. What I hate most about Spring?

Reality. What I mean is, the dusty roads, the muddy, dead grass and brown, brown everything – brown everywhere. This town is at its ugliest in the spring. So, it’s nice to make things inside floral and lovely.

Hence, the floral monogram project! You can buy these lovely pieces from etsy for $80 – $130.

I’m sorry, did you just choke? ‘Cause I nearly did when I saw the price. But my dear friend Pinterest showed me a better way. And it’s basically as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1. Draw letter on cardboard.

2. Cut out letter.

3, Cut and glue dollarama/ dollar tree flowers on letter.

An S for my girl’s nursery! I’m quite happy with how it turned out.

And guess what I spent?

A whopping $6.00. Yup, Six. And now I have a little bit of Spring in my suite! 🙂
