VISIT IN SPLIT

Hands down my favourite day of the whole trip was when we took a day trip to Krka national park. This park is full of these insanely gorgeous natural waterfalls that you can gawk over! (Actually if you go in the summer months you can swim in them!) we booked our tour with a company called Splitlicious and I couldn’t recommend them enough! We got picked up in a mini bus around 8am in the morning and headed to Krka, it takes about 40 minutes to walk around the entire park and there’s a lovely little restaurant that over looks the waterfalls where we ate lunch.

HOW TO MAKE A FUN PAPER FLOWER CROWN

Written by , Posted in Fashion and Accessories, How To...

DIY Paper Flower Crown Make Your Own Colourful Fun Headpiece Papercraft-14

Flower crowns are one of my favourite accessories not only when it comes to weddings but also festivals (and every day life!) whether they’re real flowers, faux flowers or paper flowers I’m seriously obsessed, and all the better when the colours are as bright and bold as this DIY flower crown we’re sharing with you today! Holly from Club Crafted is going to demonstrate how fun making a crown like this is, they would look so adorable on little flower girls or even a great craft to do at a bridal shower! Over to Holly…

When I, Holly, set out to make paper flower crowns, I struggled with how to make flowers that were both simple to make and that would not appear cheesy or childish. After trying out a few different flower designs, I have two styles of flowers to share (with a template!) to make this project as easy as possible for you but still feel elegant, and once put together, these flower crowns are perfect for a bridal shower project or any other type of event you want to celebrate.

I’ll warn you, making these crowns is fun but will be a long process. Just use a variety of your favorite spring colored paper and start cutting! Once all of the pieces are cut and curled, the gluing is a piece of cake. If you have a cutting machine, such as a Cricut or Silhouette, you can upload these PNG templates to cut for you. Otherwise, note that cutting by hand may take some time to cut enough flowers to fill the crown. There are two types of flowers: large individual petal flowers and smaller one-piece flowers.

YOU WILL NEED:

Coloured cardstock, including green for leaves // White cardstock // Scissors // Glue gun and glue sticks // Paper flower templates //

STEP 1:

If cutting by hand, print the paper flower templates in your desired size and use them as templates to cut out flowers from the colored cardstock. The one-piece flowers should be about 4 inches wide. The individual petal flowers should be about 2 inches wide for the large petals and 1.5 inch wide for the small petals (5 large, 5 small per flower).

Note, cut some petal shapes out of green paper for leaves and cut the comb-looking pieces out of a yellow or similar color to be the middles of the flowers.

I love fun table names as much as the next gal but sometimes it’s just easier to have table numbers and if you’re thinking of having numbers instead of names then do not worry because that doesn’t mean that they’re going to be boring! Today’s DIY is all about these fun spray painted gradient table numbers and they really couldn’t be easier to do! These are perfect if you really want to add a pop of colour to your tables and if you team them up with some bright and beautiful flowers you’re onto a real winner!

YOU WILL NEED:

Wooden Table Numbers (We got these ones from eBay) // Spray paint in the colours of your choice! We used Rustoleum in spa blue, candy pink, berry pink and real orange //

STEP 1:

If you like you can add a base paint of white first of all, I didn’t have any white paint on hand though so I just went straight in with the colours. I decided to use the blue first so I went ahead and spray painted the top of each of the numbers blue.

STEP 2:

Next, I decided to go to the bottom of the letters and spray paint the orange, this was because I wanted to the pink colours to really POP and knew if I spray painted the orange last it would cover them up a bit too much.

STEP 3:

Finally, spray paint the two different shades of pink, I started with the light pink then added the bold berry pink afterwards.

STEP 4:

Allow to fully dry and then repeat steps 1 – 3 adding a second layer of coat to each number.

Told you it was easy right? It took me all of maybe 10 minutes to paint these three numbers and then leave them to dry, I added the second coat within a few hours and by the next day they were ready to use, so you could easily get a bunch of table numbers done in one afternoon! Who doesn’t love a quick and easy wedding DIY am I right?! xx
