DIY: Floral number

As I plan Aria’s birthday, I’ve been doing a few DIY projects for her party. I wanted to create a number for the party that would be covered in flowers, kind of like the one that was on my inspiration board

Honestly, this has to be one of the easiest projects around and I feel like it will create such a beautiful piece for her bash. I also feel like this could be done with a letter instead of a number if needed! 

I bought everything from Hobby Lobby, and spent a total of around $15. Again, I like to buy the flowers and other things needed when there is a sale going on so luckily I scored the stuff for 50% off! WIN! 

It’ll take you about one naptime to get this accomplished, which to me is a pretty speedy project! 

The things you’ll need:
– Wooden number (I’m sure you could also use chipboard or cardboard if they have it)
– 1 large flower bouquet in the color scheme you want (I only needed one but you may need more depending on what flowers you use)
– Scissors
– Glue gun and glue sticks and lots of it!

Ok, let’s get started!

Here is what my plain wood number looked like before it became adorned with flowers! You can also paint this if you think you won’t be able to cover it with all the flowers. My number is probably around 1/4 of an inch thick.

I then pulled off all the flowers from the bouquet to get ready to be glued.

To avoid glueing mistakes, I went ahead and placed them on the number before glueing so I knew before hand what it would look like for the most part. 

Once you think you have a decent idea of placement, start glueing them down! =) 

Pretty soon, you’ll have a beautiful piece in front of you! 

Voila! You are ready to decorate for your party with this piece! You can use numbers or letters like I mentioned before. That way you can use it for showers, birthdays, and other events! 

I would love to see what you make!! 

XO,
