Here are some pictures of the pew decorations that we made. Made with Butterfly clips, blue wire, w...
Instead of buying a ring pillow, I am planning on using this jewelry box instead.
For the small pillow, I just used one that came with my watch and some leftover ribbon.
What do you guys think?
When I saw this picture, I immediately wanted a black & white wedding. I found similar vases at the dollar store, and etched all 80 of them. Each table will have 3 etched vases (river rocks & white roses) arranged in a circle with tea lights behind and in the middle will have a tall cylindrical vase with a floating candle.
Lots of work put into this one, lets hope the guests take some home or else i'm stuck with them!!
For instructions on how to etch, see my post below :)
Floating Unity Candle
Since I did not want to spend a lot on unity candles, I opted to make my own!
- Clear vase
- Etching Cream
- Contact paper
- Foam brush
- Rubber gloves
Instructions: Cut the desired shape from the contact paper and adhere to a clean surface on the vase. In a well ventilated room, put on rubber gloves and apply a thick layer of cream with a foam brush. Let sit for 3-4 minutes, then gently scrub off excess cream under warm water.
For customized candles: Stamp words onto white tissue paper with pigment ink. Tear the word out and use a glue stick or spray glue to adhere it around the candle. Carefully apply heat with a heat gun to melt the tissue into the candle (don't worry, the tissue disappears!). Don't apply too much heat or the wax will drip.
Easy DIY, only took 1 hour, plus I can use the vase afterwards for flowers and such :)
After months of hunting for deals, I have finally put together care packages for my girls :) The total cost for each basket is under $30
- Fast flats - comes with a cute storage pouch
- Ceramic mug
- LED mirror
- Makeup pouch (Q-tips, wet naps, band-aids, safety pins)
- Tissue paper
- Flower loofah
- Hand sanitizer
- Chap stick
Hope they love it as much as I do! I just need to buy cellophane to wrap it up :)
Card Box & Guest Book
I have been inspired by all the wonderful ideas on here and am very excited to share all the projects that I am working on.
This card box is my very first project.
- 3 boxes, various sizes (Dollarama $6 total)
- textured wallpaper (home depot $10)
- 2 elastic rings (Walmart $8 each)
- double-sided tape
- hot glue
- duct tape (for the inside of the box)
I bought a plain guest book from Michaels ($17) and decided to alter it to match the card box.
