FAUX FOLIAGE BRIDE & GROOM CHAIR SIGNS DIY

Sometimes it’s all about the details, you don’t need many, but having a few cute detail DIY projects in the bag can really help when it comes to putting everything together on the big day! Today we’re going to be sharing a really easy bride / groom chair hang DIY which you guys can easily make in an afternoon and then pop away ready for the wedding! I just love how darn adorable they look on Emily’s pink chairs!

YOU WILL NEED:

Faux Foliage // Small faux flowers // Hot glue gun // Pliers // Steel wire // Floral tape // Printer // String or yarn //

STEP 1:

Start by printing off the word bride and groom in a font that you like, you’ll need to pick a cursive font so that all of the letters join up.

STEP 2:

Next cut a long piece of your wire and start folding it into the shape of your word, you can do most of this with your hands but you’ll need to use the pliers for the tighter curves, I also found that it helped to use the floral tape to keep certain parts of the word together once I had bent them.

STEP 3:

Repeat this with your other word, whether you’re making bride and groom, bride and bride or groom and groom. Then, tie your string or yarn onto each side of each of your words so that they’re ready to hang.

DIY THIS COLOURFUL GEOMETRIC SEATING PLAN

This month we teamed up with B&Q on their #mystatementwall campaign where we got to share our favourite colourful and statement walls over on our instagram and we also got to create a canvas of what we envisioned a statement wall of our own would look like! I chose to use blues, oranges, pinks, purples and yellow to create this geometric piece and loved the results! Afterwards I was thinking, what can | do with this canvas now? And it hit me that it would make an awesome seating plan! Here’s how to create your own geometric table plan…

YOU WILL  NEED:

A white canvas // Paints in the colours of your choice // Paintbrushes // Frog tape // Faux flowers (or real flowers if you prefer) // A glue gun // Black vinyl // White vinyl // Cricut Machine* // Place names (These can be from your stationer, printed out at home or handwritten if you’ve got lovely hand writing) // Craft glue //

*You don’t necessarily NEED a Cricut with black and white vinyl for this project, you can always get some vinyl letters or stickers if you prefer to create the words ‘seating plan’ at the top
