*NEW TREND ALERT* Geode is going to be BIG in the wedding industry this year and we are loving this trend! I mean how beautiful are the amethyst rocks? Every single stone is different and unique in it’s own way! We have a few DIYs planned over the upcoming months including geode but we thought it would be fun to kick off the trend with an amethyst nail mani! I just love how glittery and sparkly this design turned out, they are definitely sure to WOW! Here’s how to recreate this look…

If you’ve been reading Bespoke Bride since August you would have seen the beautiful Confetti Bucket DIY in collab with Shropshire Petals! I absolutely adored making that ice bucket and loved the way it turned out so much that I wanted to try and recreate one with a Christmas spin! An ice bucket that would be the perfect centre piece for any table and really show off the glitz and glam of Christmas! This year, in our house, the festive theme is metallics so I really wanted my ice bucket to match and include lots of golds, coppers and bronze shades! Let’s get going shall we?

diy-glitter-ice-bucket-christmas-gold-metallic-confetti-bronze-copper-centrepiece-wine-cooler-champagne-6

YOU WILL NEED:

Metallic confetti (I went for gold stars) // Crystal type confetti // Glitter // Tinsel // 1 large bucket // 1 smaller bucket (it needs to fit inside the large bucket but also be big enough to hold a bottle) // stones //

STEP 1:

Take your large bucket and fill it with 2-3 inches of water then pop in the freezer and allow to freeze.

STEP 2:

Next, grab the smaller bucket and place inside the larger one then weigh it down with stones to ensure it doesn’t float when we add in the extra water!

STEP 3:

Add another 2 inches of water to the bucket next and sprinkle in some glitter, then allow to freeze.

DIY SNOW GLOBE FAVOURS

If you’re having a festive shindig and want to create some fun favours to match then why not make your own snow globes that each of your guests can take home? They couldn’t be easier to make and would look super pretty on all the tables! We’ve used flamingos in ours but you could add whatever plastic animals you can find. Unicorn snow globes would be equally as amazing!

Also, if you’re eyeing up that gorgeous sequin tablecloth in the photos it’s from Pudding Bridge! SO pretty right?!

YOU WILL NEED:

Jars // Super Glue // Glycerin // Plastic flamingos (or other plastic animals!) // Glitter // Sequins // Small disco balls or other embellishments // White tack (optional)

STEP 1:

Firstly you’ll want to glue your flamingos to the inside of the lid of your jar, along with any other decorative items you want to pop in there. We added in small disco balls and silver stars to a few of ours! We also decided to add a little white tack in first just to give the flamingos more height but this is completely optional.

STEP 2:

Add half a teaspoon of glitter, half a teaspoon of sequins and half a teaspoon of glycerin to your jar. Obvs add more glitter and sequins if you want, you can never have too much glitter! (more…)
