Floral + Wire Words DIY Project

DIY Wire Words (A Beautiful Mess)Want to decorate your space with a special oversized word? Here's a fun and budget-friendly DIY project that will help you customize your space!  

Flower + wire words steps1. Supplies Needed: Thick floral wire, Wire cutters, Hot glue, Small silk blooms and fabric cut into long 1/2 inch strips. (note- you don't need floral tape) 2. Use multiple layers of wire to shape large letters. Our letters are about 13 inches tall. Mimic your favorite font (ours is modeled after "Strangelove") or create your own cursive word. 3. Using hot glue on the ends, wrap the wire letters completely with fabric strips. This will make them much easier to glue to and cover any sharp wire edges. 4. Carefully use hot glue to adhere silk blooms around the entire front surface of the letters. When you are done, go back and add more flowers to certain spots to give it a fuller appearance.

FinishingFlatten and reshape your letters before displaying.
