The following review is part of the Jo-Ann Fabric And Craft StoresĀ® National Craft Month campaign. I received compensation for this review; however, this is my personal, honest opinion based on my experience.

Hello and happy weekend to you, friends! We are loving the beautiful weather here in sunny Arizona.  And with spring just around the corner, I am in the mood to get my craft on with all things that remind me of spring. Plus, it’s National Craft Month!! Lucky for me (and YOU) Jo-Ann Craft and Fabric Stores has a great spring crafting inspiration website chalk full of fun spring ideas and tutorials. After visiting the website, I was totally inspired to make something using flowers and floral print. Check out the Spring Monogram Door Decor I created!

It’s such a pretty, happy invite to our family and guests as we enter our home. I love the floral print with the glittery gold bunting, don’t you?

How-To:

With your floral paper print side down, lay your 3D cardboard letter on top (right side down) and trace with a pencil. Using your scissors, cut out your letter. With a sponge brush, paint the front of your cardboard letter with Mod Podge and lay the floral paper on top, smoothing it out as you go so that there are little to no air bubbles under the paper. Allow dry time. (*Optional: Add an additional layer of Mod Podge on top of the floral paper.) Hot glue the bird and paper flowers where you’d like them on your monogram. Cut out glittery gold bunting pieces and hot glue them to the jute. Then hot glue the ends of the jute to your monogram. Hot glue a loop of ribbon or ric rack to the back top of your letter so that you can hang it from your door easily. DONE!
