We already mentioned last week how big we think geode is going to be in the wedding world this year so we thought it would be fun to bring a little amethyst into our free printables with these easy geode drink stirrers! I love how pretty and colourful they came out, can you imagine how striking these would look filling the glasses on a table? They’re ridiculously easy to create too, I made 12 drink stirrers in about 20 minutes so it’s totally manageable to make a bunch of these in an afternoon.
Print your geode shapes out onto white card, making sure you select a high quality print setting. There are 24 geode shapes per A4 piece in shades of pink, purple and teal so print off as many sheets as you need.
Using your gold gel pen go over the areas of the shape that are a light cream colour so that they’re replaced with a beautiful shiny gold instead! This just adds that extra element to your drink stirrers and make them reflect the light.
While we’ve tried a few different DIY’s with faux florals here at BB, a trend we are seeing more of is the flower adorned wedding veil. We have seen pretty ones covered in real flowers but we really wanted to see if we could create a faux flower veil with the same ‘WOW’ effect? As it turned out it was one of the easiest DIY’s we have ever tried.
YOU WILL NEED:
A plain veil | A selection of faux flowers in a range of sizes | Glue Gun | Glue sticks
Start by taking a selection of large and small flowers and attach in a cluster around the comb, using your glue gun. This will ensure the comb stays fully hidden when the veil is being worn.
Using larger flowers, starting at the top, glue the flowers at random intervals around the veil working your way down to about half way.
Take a selection of smaller flowers and work your way down from the half line down to the bottom of the veil. (more…)
Backdrops DIY’s are one of my favourite things to make. They are usually fairly simple yet hugely effective and can transform any space. They can be used for all types of things whether it be as an alternative to a traditional wedding altar, decor for a cake table or used for a photo booth and are great for any type of party or event. The best thing is they can be easily customized to suit your gig at relatively low cost, so here’s 45 of our favourite DIY’s, suitable for any occasion.

15. If your venue is fussy about using adhesives on walls how about this Post-it Note Photo Booth Backdrop. It won’t leave any residue and the sticky adhesive isn’t strong enough to pull away any paint or paper when its being taken down? (Photo via Poppytalk)
23. The easiest projects are always the best and all you need to do for this Balloon Wall Photo Booth is blow up balloons in different colors, shapes and sizes and stick to a wall using tape – simples! (Photo by Alison Piepmeyer via Oh Happy Day)
I know what you’re thinking…an ice bucket DIY in January? Has she gone nuts? Well let me tell you, no I have not. Cold drinks are required all year round and they’re even better when served in the prettiest ice bucket you’ve ever seen!
You can easily make this emoji heart ice bucket just in time for Valentines Day to make sure that you’re serving your drinks in style and the best news is it takes less than an hour to create!
Upload the heart templates to the Cricut Design Space and resize to the size you want, I made my heart 2.2 inches wide to fit my ice bucket and then I adjusted the size of the yellow sparkles to match. You’ll then want to duplicate the shapes as many times as you require to cover your ice bucket. I ended up having 21 hearts in total.
Start by placing your pink vinyl onto your sticky mat and load into the machine, set your Cricit to cut vinyl and hit that go button!
Once your machine has finished cutting out all of the pink hearts, repeat step two with your yellow vinyl and allow it to cut out all of the sparkles.
