Upscale Your GLOSSYBOX: Floral Monogrammed Display

Spring is finally here! We’re celebrating this new season with a ‘Blossom‘ edit that is budding with floral scents, bursting with botanical goodness, and blooming with gorgeous hues that perfectly-complement the season’s latest trends. Of course, if you really want to embrace our theme, why not add a little floral décor to your room? With this GLOSSYBOX upscale, you can create a gorgeous floral monogrammed display!

What You’ll Need

  • A pink GLOSSYBOX, empty
  • Fresh or fake flowers, two different colours
  • A wet floral foam brick
  • A knife

How To Make Your Floral Monogrammed Display

Of all the ways to upscale your GLOSSYBOX (and there are a lot!), this may be the prettiest upscale yet. While we’ve opted for fresh flowers, you can use fake ones and keep the display up all year round!

  • Step 1: Cut The Foam Into Shape

Your wet floral foam brick needs to fit neatly inside the base of your GLOSSYBOX. So, start by measuring your box, then use a sharp knife to cut the foam into the right size and shape. It should fill the whole width of the box, but leave a 1.5cm gap from the top. That’s roughly 16cm wide, 20cm long and 5cm tall.

Insider Tip: You can buy a wet floral foam brick for just £1.25 from Hobbycraft here.

  • Step 2: Carve Your Initial

Now that your foam is the correct size, slot it into the base of your GLOSSYBOX. Next, use a knife to engrave your chosen initial (we obviously went for a G!) into the foam.

  • Step 3: Prepare Your Flowers

Take your two bunches of flowers (you should have at least two different colours – one to write the letter and one to make it stand out) and cut the stems so that they’re about 6cm long. You want a small part of the stem to be visible above the foam.

Insider Tip: You can buy fake pink flowers for £2 from Hobbycraft here and fake white flowers for £2 from Hobbycraft here.

  • Step 4: Fill In Your Letter

Slot one colour of flowers into the engraved letter that you created with the knife. Take your time over this. It looks better when you insert the flowers one by one and pack them closely together.

  • Step 5: Fill The Rest Of The Box

Using your second bunch of flowers (we opted for white as it really makes the pink stand out!), fill the rest of your box. Continue until the box is completely filled all the way to the edge and right around the outside.
