Floral Initials

Floral initials are lovely, personal wedding decorations, especially when filled with the couple’s favorite plants. They are great to make for your own wedding, or to give as a gift to a gardening friend who is tying the knot. Try the couple’s first initials, or just their last initial if you only have time to make one. Or go all out and spell their names if you have the time!

Wire Outline

To make your personalized floral initials you’ll need to begin with a wire frame. You can make them yourself, but they can be found at many craft and garden stores. The time and trouble saved make the small cost worth it. You’ll also need moss to line your letters, plants to fill them and dirt for your plants to grow. Try to choose plants that thrive in similar types of soil so that they can all grow and flourish together.

Moss Lining

Begin by lining your letters with sheet moss. This will keep the dirt from falling out of your wire frame, and it looks beautiful.

Add Soil

Fill your letter with soil, pressing the moss against the frame to hold it in place. We used a sandy soil so the succulents we were planting could thrive.
