Wedding Crafts! 

Hello!

A few months ago one of my friends got married and she asked for my crafty skills to help out with some of the wedding decor.  I learned some fun tips and tricks and I’m going to share them below!

We wrapped plain tea lights in washi tape to make them pretty!
The wedding was “Peter Pan” themed, which was prefect for the bride and groom. Thimbles were used as accents.
Ribbon wands! We didn’t craft these, but the picture was too pretty not to share!
Thimbles and acorns were used at each place setting. We lightly spray painted the acorns with a shimmery gold paint.
The card box! We actually did construct this ourselves with wrapping paper, ribbon, feathers, and wedding themed stickers.
One of my favorite crafts was embellishing the feathers. We lightly spray painted the feathers with glitter spray paint. They were so pretty!

These were just a few things to share, the whole wedding was incredibly creative!  Hopefully I’ll share the table layouts soon!  I hope you enjoyed, happy crafting!

Mermaid Luminary Jar

Hello!  Ever have those crafts that are so beautiful and you can’t wait to try… but the entire process is one failure after another?  Well… this was that craft for me!  I had been searching for exact directions and I wasn’t successful.  I was determined to make this little gem so I mapped out a plan (that was awful).  Once I learned a few dos and don’ts the product below was created.  Ready for this? Here we go!

What you’ll need:

  • Jar
  • Pretty paper (I used blue paper)
  • Clip art
  • Mod Podge
  • Scissors
  • Glitter
  • Frosted Glass Spray Paint
  • Lights (I used a tea light)

  • Step One- Spray the jar with the frosted glass spray paint.
  • Step Two- Using clip art, layout the under the sea design.  You’ll want to make sure you measure the jar and set the template to the same measurements.  It’s also better to over estimate than underestimate! (That’s one of those lessons I learned)
  • Step Three- Cut out template and use Mod Podge to secure to the inside of the jar.  This part gets tricky because you have to get the paper into the jar before applying the Mod Podge.  I used it to mostly seal the top and bottom of the paper.
  • Step Four- Using glitter and glue, cover the parts of the jar that the template doesn’t cover.  If I do this project again, I’m going to try to put the glitter inside the jar instead of outside.
  • Step Five- Drop the lights inside!  I used a dimmer tea light for my project.  I didn’t realize that the paper I selected was double sided and the pattern on the inside would show when the lights are on.  (Another lesson learned…) The brighter the lights, the more you could see the inside pattern (pictured above!)

I hope y’all enjoyed!  I’m on the fence about trying this one again!  If I do I think it’ll be for my Etsy shop!

Mermaid in a jar!

Hello!  Michael’s has the best selection of fairy garden supplies and this year they have a ton of beachy fairy garden decorations.  I have intentions of using some of my fairy garden supplies in one of my Scentsy warmers (I’ll feature that later!), but until then, I wanted to try something different.  I made a Mermaid in a Jar!  It’s very quick, easy, and looks great in my Mermaid themed bedroom!

What you’ll need:

  • Mason Jar
  • Glass Pebbles
  • Fairy Garden Supplies (I used a mermaid, tiny star fish, and a tiny sign)
  • Ribbon

I placed the pebbles in the bottom, added the mermaid, sign, and starfish.  Then I wrapped a pearl strand around the neck of the bottle and glued into place! Pretty quick and easy.  Hope y’all enjoy!

Bunny Banner

Hello!  I love today’s craft!  This was another Pinterest find and it was way easier than I anticipated.

What You’ll Need:

  • Twine
  • Paper (I used pretty scrapbook paper)
  • Pom poms
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Bunny Template

I printed the bunny template on a plain piece of computer paper and used that as a guide when I was cutting from the scrapbook paper.  I chose sheet of scrapbook paper that complimented each other.  Once all the bunnies were cut out, I laid them in order of how I wanted them to be on the banner.  Every other bunny had ribbon bow ties and every other bunny had a pom pom for it’s tail.  Once the embellishments were added, I put a hole in the ear and strung on twine!  This is a really easy craft to make kid-friendly by using plain paper and allowing kids to decorate each bunny!

Happy crafting!

Bunny Jar

Hello!  Today’s craft was a Pinterest find.  It turned out pretty cute, the outline of the bunny isn’t as smooth as I would like it to be.  I think I’m going to give this craft another shot, but I wanted to share before Easter!  To make this, I found a bunny template and taped it to the jar.  (I could have done a better job taping, I have a feeling that is why the lines are so rough.)  Then I painted the jar.  Once it was dry I just added the twine!  I plan on filling these with jelly beans as an Easter gift!  Happy crafting!

Spring Wreath

Hello!  Each season I’ve been trying to update the wreathe on my front door.  Wreaths aren’t exactly hard (at least not the ones that I’ve been trying!), but I’ve found getting the picks in the right place can be frustrating.  I’m pretty pleased with how my spring wreath turned out!  I’m in love with tulips this season!  Happy Spring!!!
