Not to mention it’s probably the easiest backdrop DIY we’ve ever made!

YOU WILL NEED:

Plain paper in a variety of colours (We bought a 12 x 12 pack) // A pair of scissors // A ruler // white tac // A pencil //

STEP 1:

Draw the shape of a geometric heart using your pencil and a ruler onto one of your sheets of paper or onto a piece of card, then cut it out. We sized our hearts roughly 10 inches by 10 inches.

STEP 2:

Use this shape as a stencil to cut out the rest of the hearts, so simply trace around the outside of it onto each piece of colourful paper and then cut them all out until you have enough hearts to fill the space of the wall you need to cover.

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

Today’s DIY is all about the fun factor! This pom pom veil would be perfect to make for a bride to be ready for that hen party or bridal shower!

Forget the cheesy sash’s and tiaras why not upgrade a veil into something far more fun and modern?! It’s no secret that pom poms are everywhere right now and we love the idea of incorporating them into a little bit of wedding fashion! (Especially when they’re as bright and colourful as these!)

And don’t get me wrong we still think this would look kick ass on a bride for her wedding day too! It’s beyond cute and the best news is that it really couldn’t be easier to make plus you only need a few items…

YOU WILL NEED:

A Veil // Pom Poms // A Glue Gun //

STEP 1:

Lay out your veil onto the floor and place the pom poms where you want them. I place three onto the clip and then varied the rest throughout the veil making sure that no two pom poms of the same colour were too close to each other.
