DIY Floral Letter Tips:
Make sure the back of Each Artificial Flower is Leveled off
When using artificial flowers, pull them off the stems and make sure the knobby bits attached to the stem are cut off.
You will want the backs of your artificial flowers to be as level as possible.
This will ensure the flowers are glued onto the wood letter more securely.
Optional: Paint the Wood Letter
Depending on what color your wood letter is, you can choose to paint the wood letter or leave the letter as is.
The wood letters I bought were pre-painted white, and I thought this would complement the area my floral letter word choice would be in.
