Framed Floral Monogram

framed floral monogram Laura Bray

I'm excited to be one of the new design team members for the Creating with Joy blog! I'm so happy to be here and share my project ideas for Joy letters.

I love to embroider, but I'm an impatient crafter and get really bored if I have to satin stitch an entire monogram, so Joy letters are the perfect "cheat" item for someone like me. I can just iron-on the letter, embroider some pretty embellishments around it and I'm done! This cute framed floral monogram took me less than an hour to make!

  • Joy iron-on embroidered letter
  • Small white frame
  • Small piece of linen
  • Embroidery floss in green and red
  • Green felt

1. Mark your frame size on your piece of linen. Center your monogram and iron-on.

2. Embroider vines around the sides of the monogram, then attach small felt leaves to the vines with a straight stitch.

3.  Embroider french knots for berries/flower buds around the leaves and vines.

4. Once you are happy with the design, cut out the embroidered area from the linen and slip it into your frame.
