3. The Ultimate DIY Wedding Venue Checklist: Whilst most venue checklists will take your through the basics, this one is specifically tailored to the not so ‘typical’ wedding venue e.g barns, fields, community centers. As these types of venues aren’t usually set up for this type of function, it will most likely need some extra planning on your part i.e does the venue have generators? Are their toilets? Are there enough power points? What are the noise restrictions? This list takes you through everything you will need to know and there is a free printable checklist too!

Socks are such a staple at Christmas, I really don’t think that there has ever been a Christmas in my life when I didn’t receive socks as a present and I am totally ok with that! I love socks, especially the warm and cosy kind but most of all socks that look cute are the best! I feel like now, more than ever socks are becoming a really big thing in fashion (we’re looking at you Happy Socks!) and I thought it would be super fun to design a couple of pairs this year!

There are 2 different designs to make completely for free to help make your own! Whether you’re gifting them to friends, your bridesmaids or just to yourself there’s no denying that these socks are beyond cute! We have a cute cactus print or for something really simple and fun a gold polka design! It’s totally up to you what colour socks you go for but we decided on a shade of pink and a white pair for the gold polka dots. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own…

YOU WILL NEED:

Plain cotton socks //  Cactus design // An Iron // Gold glitter iron on // Green glitter iron on // A Cricut Explore //

FOR THE POLKA DOT SOCKS

diy-christmas-socks-polka-dot-gold-cactus-glitter-pink-make-your-own-tutorial-cricut-3

Simply create a circle shape in your Cricut design space (I sized the circles 1 inch in diameter)  and load in your gold iron on into the machine. Allow the machine to cut it out then peel away the negative space leaving only the polka dots. Heat up your iron and iron on the dots, varying the placement as you go, making sure that you cover the entire of the socks. Super simple!
