Add a pretty floral finish to your reception with this cute, easy-to-DIY decoration idea
You will need...
- Letters for the words of your choice
- Scalpel or craft knife
- White spray paint
- Oasis foam
- Fresh flowers (we used roses)
1 Begin by hollowing out the cardboard letters. Do this using a scalpel or craft knife. Carefully slice around the edge of each letter until the front comes away.
2 Cover each letter with two coats of white spray paint. Once the paint is dry, cut blocks of Oasis foam into pieces small enough to fit inside the letters. Pack them fairly densely – you want them to be wedged firmly into place.
3 Cut fresh flowers, such as roses, in a colour to match the rest of your décor, leaving a few centimetres of stem on each head. Carefully push the flowers into the Oasis, using the stems to pierce it. Continue to add them in until the letters are completely filled with brightly coloured blooms.
