How to Paint a Floral Monogram

Paint a Spring Monogram, easy and fun, great for the kids. FlowerPatchFarmhouse.comHow to Paint a Floral Monogram

It was one of those days when my original, well thought out plan just did not work.  I needed to do an easy stress reliever project and this was it.

I winged my way through it and just enjoyed while trying to get it video’d for you.

Why video and post a project that is really a hot mess?  Because you can see that some days you just paint to paint and not worry about the outcome.

Enjoy the process.  There are no step by step photos for this,  just the video.

In the video you see me change my mind frequently, threw flowers in I hadn’t planned on and just create on the fly.

Now that it is done I can see where I would do it differently.  Maybe a black background?  Or a creamy one.  I would put a rose at the base of the P instead of the first one up from the base.  I think I would use pansies too.

  1. What a wonderful project, Pam! I love anything monogrammed, so thank you for sharing your beautiful inspiration and technique. 🙂

    1. So many ways you can go with this. I am already thinking of those wood or cardboard letters you can buy at the hobby stores.

    Thank you from Pauline

  3. I love this and plan to make it for my daughters birthday in April using the letter A for her name. Yes…she was born on April Fools Day! Do you remember what site you found the letters?

    1. I just made one in Word. I think I used a basic block letter like Arial font.
      I hope this helps. April Fools day or no, I am sure she was the greatest gift. 🙂
