 Flower garland

 

On DIY wednesday today you can make your own fabric flower garland

Here’s  a miniature version of it for everyone. It’s easy to make and can be used in so many ways… hung from the ceiling, attached to the back of chairs, aisle “rope” or laid on the table for an added element.
 
Supplies: Scissors, needle and thread, fabric, and a pencil.

 
Step 1: Fold your fabric and use the spool of thread to trace a circle. Then cut the circles out.
Step 2: Take one circle and fold it in half.
Step 3: Take the half circle and fold it in half again.
Step 4: Then take your circle and stitch through the bottom. Continue this step, adding at least 6 circles on top of the first.
Step 5: Once you have sewn all 6 circles, connect the petals together by stitching through each one at the corners and then tying off the tread with a double knot.
Step 6: Next, cut 3 yards of thread and add on the flowers one by one.

Bridal spoon favors

I love finding new uses for common objects, luckily for me I’m not the only one! So when I spotted these wooden spoons on the internet, I knew I had to do something with this item. I think they’d be perfect to hand out as favors at a wedding or as a gift to a bridal couple. Especially two foodies! Personalize them to the couple and you’ll be a big hit!
You will need: pencil, wooden cooking spoons, acrylic paints, paintbrush, twine and labels for packaging.

 
Step 1: Draw your face with a pencil. Keep it simple! For the bride, make a simple collar or necklace. For the groom, draw a necktie.
Step 2: Paint in the pencil lines with acrylics.
Step 3: To make the eyes I used the other end of my paintbrush.
Done! How easy was that?! And so cute! Add on a cute tag with twine and they’re ready to go!
