Or a wedding, birthday party, housewarming…Okay, it works for pretty much anything. Especially if you like flowers as much as I do.

What you need:

Aleene’s® The Ultimate Multi-Surface Adhesive™

Cardboard letters


Box cutter or cutting blade

Start by cutting off the top of each cardboard letter with the cutting blade. Make sure the letter is in the correct direction before cutting each side.

To give this project a more finished look I chose to paint it in a metallic color. I was trying to achieve the rustic metal look and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Use your preferred color and paint all the letters.
