Floral and wire words

After our flower messages last year with Flower Muse, I wanted to revamp the project a little so that you could transport it and even hang it on a wall! What’s prettier than something said with flowers, guys? Nothing, that’s what. These lovely little floral words are sturdy so you can move them around, hang them, lean them, and reposition them however you like. Can’t you just see these at a wedding or a shower, spelling out a fun phrase? So pretty! I loved ’em so much we made our “be you” sign into a free wallpaper download, so get it for your desktop OR phone down below.


Make Time: 10 Minutes per Word

Floral and wire words

Step 1: Use your wire cutters to cut off a few feet of wire. Start bending it to form your words. Don’t be afraid to really work it into straight lines or curves. Experiment a little with the type of writing you’d like to use. Remember that in each word all of your letters will need to be connected, so think “cursive.”

Step 2: Cut off a few stems of florals, planning where you’d like them to be. I like the sparse look for this particular project but you can cover as much or as little of the wire as you like! Cut the stem to about 2-3 inches. Place the stem against a portion of the wire word. Wrap floral tape around and around the stem until the flower is secured against the wire. Rip of the end of the tape.

Step 3: Repeat with more florals! Try fun combinations of flowers and greenery, and place the combinations at various spots along the wires until you’re satisfied.

Just hang them on the wall with small tacks or nails, or even removable hooks if the words aren’t too loaded with flowers and they’re light enough. You can also lean them against walls, suspend them from the ceiling, or hang them like a wreath on a door!
