How To Create Floral Lettering
SHORT VIDEO: Floral Lettering Step by Step
- 🌸 Start with a pencil and lightly draw your alphabet shape. I used this geometric ruler to ensure all of my alphabets were of the same height.
- 🌸 With your pencil add a small flower doodles into the thick area of each letter
- 🌸 Lightly erase your pencil guidelines until they are just visible to the eye.
- 🌸 Switch to a black pen and first trace over the flower doodle. Then draw the rest of your alphabet around the flower.
Using a pencil allows us to easily see where the flower overhangs over the alphabet and we can trace around the flower to create beautiful Alphabets!
Then using your pen carefully draw over the flower first, and then draw the alphabet around it. Since we have the pencil guidelines, we can easily decide where the flower overlaps the alphabet.
I love how beautiful these Flower Alphabets turn out!

Flower Lettering BLOOM
Flower Lettering Step by Step:
Start with a pencil outline of the letters you need. I am lettering the word “BLOOM” here and drew the outline of the the letters using a light 4H pencil first onto the paper.
Once you have your letter size and placement figured out the rest is all fun! I find it super relaxing to sit down with a pen and doodle tiny flowers in – over and over again. You can fill your alphabets with tiny flowers of course, but I like to also add leaves. Draw what you enjoy and make it uniquely yours.
The different sizes of the the Drawing Pen make it easy to add details to your design. The 01 pen is great to fill in tiny spaces between your flowers, draw tiny circles or give a thin outline to any shape.
I chose to leave my Flower Lettering with simple black and white lines, but you can choose to color it in too!
