DIY Baby’s Breath Monogram

DIY Projects

A while back we shared a few baby’s breath wedding ideas and it’s still one of our favorite big-bang-for-your-buck flowers. So when the ladies of Hey Look sent over this next tutorial, I knew it was going to be a winner. These initial monograms are so simply beautiful, it stopped me in my tracks. Michaela used both this filler flower and ferns, but you can use any other leafy filler to match the mood of your wedding decor and can be used to hang on your + future other’s chairs or church doors.

From Hey Look: These monograms are inexpensive, easy to make and what’s best is that you can make them a few days before your wedding. In the fridge they will last a good 2 days. Baby’s breath especially is long-lasting and you can ask your local flower shop for ferns and greens that will survive without water for a few days.

For the baby’s breath monogram you will need:

  • A bunch of baby’s breath or ferns
  • Thicker metal wire for the base frame
  • Thinner wire for attaching the baby’s breath
  • Wire clippers or strong scissors

For the green monogram you need the same supplies; just replace the baby’s breath with ferns, leaves or other greens of your choice.

Start by shaping a frame for your monogram. Just bend thick wire into the shape of a letter. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect, you can adjust it a little after you’ve added the florals or greens.

Take a little bunch of greens and tie them together with the thin wire. Then with the same wire attach the little bunch to the monogram frame. Don’t cut off the excess wire, just wrap it around the frame a few times, then continue tying little bunches to the frame with the same piece of wire. No need to cut it off until the end.

Make the baby’s breath monogram in the same way.

The every last bunch of baby’s breath should be attached to the frame in the opposite direction. Just try to make the gap for the last rounds of wire as small as possible. In the picture of the finished end piece, you can still see the hole for the wire. Once, the entire monogram is ready, just adjust the blooms (or greens) a little to cover holes.

We chose baby’s breath for the monogram, because it is easy to work with, inexpensive and long-lasting. You can also dry baby’s breath monograms after your wedding (or shower) as a lovely reminder of your big day. We added the fern monogram as a groom’s monogram, but of course you can only make one kind. If you’d like to use other plants or flowers, just as at your local flower shop for recommendations on long-lasting ones. You could also make this from paper flowers or leaves.

Julie of Julie Randall Photography will admit to being a bit of an emotion junkie. From the time she could crawl she watched her family photograph and print couples’ special moments at their own family run business. She has continued that legacy with her own spin on capturing the whimsical moments during the big day. She emphasizes photography as a medium for storytelling and wants to tell your unique tale; from the toasts to all the hugs, the pre-aisle anticipation to the post-ceremony giddiness.

She prides herself on being an unobtrusive element of the day. She wants you to focus on you (and your partner of course), and let her worry about capturing the narrative of the day: the look on your face when your best friend’s toast leaves you in hysterics, the sweet embrace of the flower girl and ring bearer slow dancing, the way lights twinkled in your loved ones eyes. More than anything Julie wants to let you shine on your day and leave you as stress free as possible.


She loves working with couples that really strive to make their wedding a reflection of themselves and their families; the ones that have a sense of humor, the ones that show a love that lasts far beyond the wedding, the ones that make a marriage. The marriages that celebrate the union of every couple.


Julie Randall Photography is based in Portland, OR. All packages include engagement sessions and albums. She also loves to travel and offers flat-rate travel fees for destination weddings which include either a “day-before” or “day-after” photo session. She is extending a 15% discount for all weddings taking place before October 1, 2012!

Intimate Home Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

This wedding shot by Tin Sparrow Studio may just be the sweetest thing ever. Rachael and Pete married in their own New Jersey home only two days before Christmas, with just an officiant and two photographers in tow. The bride’s wedding gown was a vintage find and no more than $100!

From the bride, Rachael: Our wedding was exactly what we envisioned… simplistically perfect and selfishly private. We wanted to get married in our favorite establishment… our home; surrounded by all of our comforts, collections and treasures. We decided it was important to have that moment just for us… no audience, no distractions, just us. After our ceremony, we stopped by my favorite store, Parcel in Montclair, to capture the wondrous treasures that inspire me. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect way to celebrate our love. It truly was the best day ever. Hooray for love!

From the photographer, Anna: Rachael (a adorably obsessive crafter) and Pete got married in their home, just the 2 of them along with us (the photographers) as their witnesses. The details were all crafted by Rachael in sweet pastel colors, along with their home. After the ceremony we headed off to town to shoot in the store that inspired Rachaels theme, and after our goodbyes they went to have crepes together to celebrate (I LOVE this couple!).
