CELEBRATIONS: Painted Bride & Groom Wedding Favors

Painted Bride & Groom Wedding Favors - homework - carolynshomework (2)I’ve had this idea for wedding favors in my mind for a few years now but never made them. It wasn't until recently that I found the right size plastic bride and groom figurines and could barely contain my excitement. I grabbed the pack of tiny cheap poorly painted figurines and threw them into my basket.

CELEBRATIONS: Wedding Birdseed in Eggshells

Wedding Birdseed in Eggshells via homework - carolynshomework (7)

Hello friends! Wedding season is here and I have an easy wedding idea that is budget friendly but on-trend. Wedding Birdseed to toss at the bride and groom. Tossing rice at newlyweds comes from an ancient tradition. It symbolized abundance and fertility. In recent years it was rumored that the rice left on the ground was harmful to birds. I’ve heard that this isn’t true but birdseed has become a popular replacement and I’m sure it’s much better for the birds and critters that clean up our mess.

Upcycling: lace water bottle

I was inspired to make this lace vase after seeing Decoupaging with Lace on Urban Comfort. For my version, I used a very tall bottle that some fancy water came in. This is actually a double upcycle project because the lace I used was an old curtain valance.

To make a lace bottle you can wrap the entire bottle in the lace or use strips of the lace depending on how you want your finished product to look. Apply Mod Podge to your bottle and wrap the fabric around the bottle. 

The length of the valance fit the bottle almost perfectly and I was able to use the lacy edge at the top of the bottle. Since the neck of the bottle is narrower, I cut the slits in the fabric and layered the slits around the neck.

Once the fabric is completely dry, add another coat of Mod Podge over the fabric. 

Add flowers and enjoy your delicate lace vase.

I think these would work perfectly as budget-friendly wedding centerpieces. So if you’re planning a wedding, start saving glass bottles and be on the hunt for lace remnants.

Thanks for visiting.

Inkling: Scratch Paper Favors

If you’re planning a wedding, bridal shower or any kind of party, this a budget-friendly favor that you can make.

Save up remnants of white paper or use inexpensive printer paper.  Cut the paper into squares.

Tie your bundle with pretty ribbon or twine. You can match your wedding colors or go all white. I did a white and cream version and a black and white version.

I added a crepe paper floral embellishment and a pretty tag.

Having an eco-chic wedding? Recycled paper or junk mail envelopes for your paper source would be fun. For a more formal party or wedding use water color paper or parchment paper. The possibilities are endless with this project.
