YOU WILL NEED:

A Barrette // Jute Ribbon // A Gem // Beads // Scissors // Wire Cutters (Optional) // Hot Glue Gun // Super Glue //

STEP 1:

Cut a piece of jute to fit your barrette. Then apply hot glue to the top of the barrette and place the jute so no metal is showing. Cut any excess jute off.

STEP 2:

Using more hot glue, add your gem to the center of your barrette!

Tip: If your gem is actually a button like mine was, you may need to use wire cutters to clip off the back before gluing it to your barrette.

STEP 3:

Add a small amount of super glue to the bottom of your beads and place them in a line on either side of your gem.

FREE PRINTABLE WEDDING SPEECH BINGO

wedding-game-speech-bingo-free-printable-download-4

This time last week I was at an absolutely beautiful wedding at Elmore Court, admiring the decor and gawking over how stunning the bride looked! It was such a fun day and when it came to the speeches the bridesmaids got me involved with wedding speech bingo! I had never played this before but it was hilarious! They handed out a word to each of us on the table and every time we heard ‘our word’ in the speeches we had to take a drink!

wedding-speech-bingo

So, I thought it would be fun to create a little free printable of this game! You could print these out and pop them on the tables or give them to the bridesmaids to hand out, we’ve even created a blank template that you or your guests can fill in themselves to make the bingo more personal to the bride and groom!
