Say it with Flowers

Say "flowers" in any language with Joy embroidered letters.....

  
I found this vintage/shabby chic bottle caddy at my local craft store and thought it would be perfect for displaying sunflowers available everywhere at this time of year.  It needed a little extra pizazz though, so I added the word "flowers" in French and German......  Anything is possible when you make it with Joy...

I chose full sheets of letters available in a variety of colors and fonts.  A script style for French and a more modern style for German - they were the perfect size for this project:


1.  Carefully peel each letter needed from the backing sheet.


2.  You can adhere the letters with most types of craft glue, but I used an extra strength stick glue.  I simply spread the glue on the strips of wood then added the letters. It held them in place perfectly and dried clear!

 
TIP: For easy spacing on the lower strip, I started 
from the outer edge then worked from right to left to place the letters for the word "BLUMEN"
 

JOY embroidered letters can be found in a variety of fonts, sizes and colors in the notions, or general crafts departments at your local craft stores!

Enjoy!
