I wish someone would’ve helped me out with some friendly advice in the handmade gift category as a child with things like this DIY floral love sign. Instead I gave my Mom things like painted rocks and the wonderful surprise of cutting up beloved printed photos and putting them in a cut up, teen magazine style collage that even obsessed Beiber lovers across the world couldn’t compete with (sorry about that one Mom!).
All of this to say that even kids can get in on this inexpensive project with a little helping hand, and it’s a DIY gift that’s actually worth saving and won’t cause tears of sadness from years of cut up family photos… don’t judge me.
- vine wrapped floral wire
- wire cutter
- floral scissors
- glue gun and hot glue
- fresh flowers of your choice
This is where the kiddos will need help. First: you’ll cut about three feet of wire off of the spool with the wire cutters to work with. Begin bending the wire letter by letter to form your word out of the same piece of wire so that it’s seamless.
As you go, put a dab of hot glue on the back of the letter joints to make sure the wire frame keeps its shape permanently.
Choose your florals that you’d like to use and hot glue them onto the sign by with a dot of glue on the back.
I liked a minimal look for the number of flowers, but you can add as many as you’d like! I think it would be really fun to have the kids pick flowers and then get to attach them to the sign, don’t you?
I even like the idea of making miniature versions to attach to gifts as name tags or wedding decor. Don’t forget to share the projects your making from Sugar & Cloth tutorials with #mysugarandcloth!
