Wedding ~ Pennants

It's shower day!
The DIY wedding decorations are ready... 


Using wedding scrap book paper, small Martha Stewart doilies, sticker letters, ribbon and aged tiny clothes pins we made adorable pennants to label the cake, seating card table and the Bride and Groom's table at the wedding....



and similar pennants for the bridal shower...


I printed out letters on the computer and used a large circle punch to make the letter circle...



The tiny clothespins were dropped into a mixture of white vinegar and steel wool which turned them a beautiful aged gray in seconds....


Beautiful banners to greet our beautiful bride!
Hope she enjoys her wonderful day!

Wedding ~ Table Numbers

The wedding colors are light pink and gray...


The 17 tables at the wedding will each be a white frame 
with a painted or glittered number... 



Kasey cut the scrapbook paper to size, and either stenciled on a number with paint, 
or glued and glittered the number...


She placed the finished numbers into an inexpensive
5x7 Ikea frame...



Each framed number is on a different 
gray scrapbook patterned paper...


and will be a beautiful addition to the
pink and gray table settings.

Wedding Shoes ~ Something Blue

Kasey loved these pink floret ballet flats...

source

 But the $300 price tag made her think again....

Kasey combined her "something blue
with her love of the floret flats..


We purchased several bags of pre-made blue florets
and an inexpensive pair of ivory summer flats to match her dress. 
Kasey hand-sewed each little blue floret to the shoe.

The result is an adorable comfortable shoe for her 
wedding day with just a touch of blue.

Wedding ~ DIY Matches


I started this project with stick matches from the dollar store.
They come in packs of 10 for $1.00


I cut long strips of card stock the width of the box,
this paper has a beautiful texture.


I scalloped one edge and added a thin strip of pink paper to the scalloped end.


I wrapped the card stock around the box of matches and trimmed off the excess.


 
 I added a monogram that I printed out on sticker paper to the top...


And then made about 40 more!


Easy and inexpensive!

Wedding ~ Seating Tag Frame

My daughter's wedding is one month from today so for this week at least my mind will be on wedding projects...

I hope you enjoy a little diversion from my usual posts...

My daughter had her eye on a frame she saw on Pinterest.... 
She wanted it for the seating tags at her wedding.

Pinterest

Together we made a table top version that will be just perfect...

My workshop... just a pile of tools on an old door in a 
corner of the basement...


We drew out a design and ran to Home Depot for wood, screws, 
L-brackets and jute....

Sorry the pictures are kind of bad and so was the lighting!

She measured, I cut, she held and I drilled and screwed...


 We had some great laughs... especially when her fiance called and she explained that she was in the basement with her Mother and power tools while her Father was upstairs cooking dinner.... 

LOL! Around here, that's how we roll.


A quick coat of stain came next...


and then we drilled holes into the wooden sides, we ran jute from side to side to make a "clothes line" to hold the seating tags....



 It turned out just as we had hoped!


We added one more cross piece to the 
bottom to keep it square....


The next step will be their names hand-painted on the 
top piece of wood...

Something like this maybe....

The guests names are on the front and the table numbers on the back.

A great mother-daughter project for her DIY wedding!


I wonder what we can use this for when the wedding is over???
Ideas?
