Have you ever thought about creating your own wedding decor? If not, you should watch our video to see just how easy it is. It’s a great way to cut down on the cost of your wedding decor. As if either of those reasons aren’t enough, it’s a great way to bond with your bridesmaids and mom before the wedding!
These monogram letters are gorgeous, easy to create and can add a chic personal touch to your wedding decor in no time! We’d like to thank our friends at Hobby Prodigy for appearing in our video to help us make these lovely letters.
If you’re looking to save money, this is a great way to cut down on the costs of having these letters made with fresh flowers by a florist. Not only are fresh flowers more costly on their own but the labor and time that it will take your florist to create these will cost you as well. We’ve broken down the cost of our letters for you so that you can see just how inexpensive they are!
Cost to have a florist create a set of monogram letters for you: Approximately $200
We went to our local craft store, Pat Catan’s to purchase our supplies. We bought 17 bunches for three letters and we had a ton left over.
Each “bunch” cost between $1 – $3.59 each.
Paper mache letter (1): $3.59
Flowers to fill one letter: Under $13.15
All three letters cost only $50.23!
Total cost per letter: Approximately $16.74
And these need not only be created for a wedding! If you’re a maid or matron of honor in a friend’s wedding and you’d like to make these to celebrate the bride at her bridal shower, these would be for a super cute and unique decoration. You could also make these as decor for a friend’s upcoming baby shower! You don’t need to be a crafty person to create these, if you can cut a straight line and use a hot glue gun, you’re set!
