DIY HALLOWEEN PUN PLATES

Halloween doesn’t just have to be about the parties, why not throw a Halloween themed dinner this year complete with scary themed treats, a spooky centrepiece and some slogan charger plates?! These are such an easy DIY to make and really add a little extra fun to your table decor, I mean who doesn’t love a good pun?!

YOU WILL NEED:

Plastic Plates (we went with clear but colour would look cute too!) // White and Black Vinyl (Or vinyl letters) // Transfer tape // Cricut machine // A black sharpie //

If you’re using vinyl letters then you won’t need the Cricut machine, but if you’re going to cut them out yourself then it’s much easier and quicker than by hand!

STEP 1:

Cut the letters out of the quotes you want to use, sizing them so that they will feat neatly into the centre of your plates. You can get creative with what Halloween puns you like! Our favourites are the following:

  • Creep it real
  • More boos
  • Boo felicia
  • #squadghouls
  • If you’ve got it, haunt it
  • Trick or treat yourself
  • Witch better have my candy

Of course feel free to come up with your own, we’d love to see them and hear them so tag us on instagram with the hashtag #BESPOKEBRIDEDIY

DIY THIS EASY RETRO SHAPES BACKDROP

Can you tell that we love making backdrops? We’ve created a fair few of them over the past couple of years like our easy geometric heart backdrop, our emoji heart backdrop, this balloon wall backdrop and even a HUGE cascading flower backdrop! What can I say, we love a statement wall! I am pleased to tell you though that retro shapes backdrop couldn’t be easier to make! Here’s how to recreate it…

YOU WILL NEED:

Card in a variety of colours (as you can see we went with different shades of pink, yellow, blues, orange and mint) // Blue tac //

Ok so that really is all you need, if you want to you can cut these shapes out by hand or use a stencil to create the shapes but we found that it would be so much quicker to just let the Cricut machine cut them out for us in a variety of shapes! So the choice is yours, if you have a machine then turn that baby on! If not, grab yourself some scissors and start cutting.

DIY CACTUS THEMED SLOGAN NAPKINS

I love paper napkins as much as the next gal but every now and then I like to use cloth napkins in a table set up, I find that they really dress up the table that little bit more, especially when they’ve got a fun slogan on! Today we’re sharing how to make these easy cactus themed napkins that will be the perfect addition to any tropical table!

YOU WILL NEED:

Plain cloth napkins (we chose pink) // Cricut green foil iron on // Pink iron on // A Cricut machine // An Iron or the Cricut EasyPress // Cactus Template // Flower Template //

STEP 1:

Upload the cactus template and the flower template to the Cricut design space and save them as cut images.

STEP 2:

Next size them to your fit your napkins, I sized these ones 4.5 inches wide.
