{DIY Project} Christmas Wreath

Now that Thanksgiving is over it is all about Christmas in our house. I am so ready for decorations, cookies and christmas music.  Yesterday I went to Hobby Lobby to stock up on new Christmas decore. I was looking for a new wreath but with a price tag of $50 after 50% off), crazy I know, I decided to create my own. It is super easy, no glue, scissors required and it takes only 15 minutes to create.

Supplies (all from Hobby Lobby): flower wire $2, basic wreath $4.50, christmas ornaments of any color $0 (used my the ones I already had), other decorations about $4. Total $ 10.50

Time: 15 minutes

Here are the results:

Happy Christmas planning,

{DIY Project} Sand brushes for your Beach wedding

Having your wedding on the beach means you and your guests have to deal with sand on your feet and in between your toes.

A fun wedding favor would be customized sand brushes! They look like regular paint brushes you can find at the hardware store, but have a softer, more silky feel to the bristles. You can easily decorate them with stickers showing your wedding date, and even a tied ribbon matching your color scheme. Some companies offer a great deal of variation to make them exactly what you want.  But you can easily make them yourself.  Here is my attempt at our first DIY project.

Supplies: scissors, personalized stickers, silk ribbon, paint brushes, and metal tin.

Cost: Brushes $0.99 cents ea., silk ribbon $3.99, metal bin $5, Stickers $5.

Time: 15 minutes


Step 1- Cut silk ribbon to the desired length. I used two colors.

 

Step 2- Put Stickers on your brushes. To create personalized stickers you will need- AVERY round glossy white 2inch stickers (I get them at Office Max). Download this template , type your initials or wedding logo and you are ready to print. 

 Step 3- Tie silk ribbon around brush 

 

They turned out so cute and are so useful!!

Your guests will love the fact that you were thinking about them when you chose your wedding favors!!

Happy beach wedding planning,

Kristina
