DIY Bloom Letter Centerpiece

Create a stunning centerpiece for your spring table using seasonal flowers and paper mache letters. Gather the following materials for this project: a craft knife, paper mache letters, floral foam, fresh flowers and pruning shears.

Materials Needed

craft knife
papier mache letters (available at your local craft store)
floral foam
fresh flowers
pruning shears

Fill Letters With Foam

Using the craft knife, carefully cut around the front panel of each papier mache letter and discard (Image 1). Remove the cardboard support inside each letter to make room for the floral foam (Image 2). Cut the floral foam so it fits snugly inside each letter (Image 3).

Add Flowers

Use pruning shears to cut the flowers’ stems leaving them long enough to firmly anchor the blooms in the floral foam (Image 1). Push flowers into foam, using a variety of colors and bloom shapes to create an eye-catching arrangement (Image 2).
