~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
Sorry it took me a while to finally get this posted...but I finally have a completed center piece with the ivory crepe paper flowers we made!
Let me know what you ladies think. Too much? Too high? Not enough? I appreciate all your thoughts and comments!
Thank you all WBC brides!!!!!!
P.S. well almost done...the only other thing I was thinking about doing was to sprinkle fairy dust/fine glitter on the flowers for more sparkle. This does not have it! Darn!!!! I thought I was done! LOL ^_^
SORRY LADIES ONE MORE UPDATE, I eliminated a step from the flower making...if you are using a strong glue then I skipped wrapping the stems at the base of the flower with the thinner floral wire and just went straight to wrapping them with the floral tape and it worked! That step was a pain in the bum! ^_^ IT MADE IT ALOT FASTER, HOPE THIS HELPS!
Finally added the glitter. I sprayed the flowers with glue then sprinkled them with the glitter. It was kind of hard to get a good photo where you can see them sparkle. You can definitely tell they sparkle in person.
