Laura's been at it again, and more craftiness has occurred in preparation for the big day, now less than a week away! Upon entering the gardens where the wedding will take place, there is a huge, wrought iron gate. She plans to hang her and Thomas' initials, for the initial "welcome" to the wedding. She made these:
by first ordering unpainted letters from Craft Cuts. She spray painted them silver, and once the paint was dry, she simply used a hot glue gun to attach petal sections cut off hydrangea blooms that she bought at Michaels. The final touch was using a staple gun to attach the wide ribbon and the letters are ready to go!
We also decided that our flower girl, Zoey, would need something for her hair, and decided to make little floral clips. I made this craft by buying Goody snap clips, and 2 little floral sprays from Michaels. I first cut the flowers from their stems, leaving about 1/2" of stem or less. I put a line of Beacon's 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue, and glued 4 flowers to each clip. I made 4 clips total, and we'll have her mom position them on the top of her head, kind of like a headband. Laura has modeled them for me so you can see the look we're aiming for. So easy. I think it took me less than 5 minutes to make all 4 clips.
