TRANSFORM YOUR WEDDING DAY DECOR WITH THESE JEWELED GEOMETRIC IDEAS

We hope you’ve all had the best weekend and if this is your first time visiting the new look site, we hope you have enjoyed what you have seen so far! Our love for colour is no secret, given the number of bright, bold DIY’s wedding’s and Styled shoots we share on our site. And today is no different, as we are super excited to share these jeweled geometric wedding decor ideas with you. Here’s a couple of quick tips for recreating this look for yourself.

First, take inspiration from your venue and work with the colours of the room. Compliment these with other bright and bold tones to make your decor really pop.

Second, if you want to know how to make those glittered champagne glasses all you need to do is get your own plain glasses (these were less than 50p each!) add PVA glue to the base and then sprinkled with glitter. They aren’t dishwasher safe but certainly look pretty and add a little bit of extra sparkle! Super simple, effective and cheap!

YOU WILL NEED:

12 cupcakes (we used vanilla but you can use your favourite flavour!) // Buttercream icing // Fondant icing // Green food colouring // Crushed up biscuits (go for a digestive or ginger nut if you want a lighter ‘sand’ or Oreo if you want something that looks more like soil) // Piping bags and nozzles // Cocktail sticks // White sprinkles // Flower cutters //

FOR THE CACTUS CUPCAKES….

1. Bake 12 cupcakes in any flavour you like and leave to cool completely

2. Crumble up 3 of the cupcakes with your hands into a bowl and set aside

3. Take the 9 remaining cupcakes, and spread or pipe some buttercream on top (you don’t need too much)

4. Dip the iced cupcakes into the biscuit crumbs to make them look like they are covered in sand. Make sure you give them a good roll around in those crumbs to get all the edges.

5. In your bowl of cake crumbs, add a small amount of buttercream (about a teaspoon) and mix them together – use those hands, just make sure they’re clean! If you can easily roll the mixture into a ball in your hand and it keeps it shape then you’ve got enough buttercream. If your mix is still too dry, and a little more buttercream and repeat. Don’t be tempted to add loads at once – you need less than you might think.

6. Start rolling your mix into the rough shape you want your cactus to be. Most cacti will start off either as a ball, a flattened ball, or a stumpy sausage. Don’t make them too big – if you’re not sure then hold it against your cupcakes to check you’re happy with the size. When you’ve used up your mix put them on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof and put them in the fridge to harden.

MAKE THIS ADORABLE JUST MARRIED DOOR MAT DIY

DIY Just Married Door Mat Spray Paint Rustoleum Cricut Newlywed Project Tutorial-7

A lot of newlyweds say to us that once their wedding was over they felt a little sad that they didn’t have any more projects to get stuck into and this made us think about all the just married DIYs that could be made once you’ve tied the knot to keep the spirit of your special day going! Say hello to the just married door mat! It’s the perfect way to let the world know that you’re celebrating and is a super fun and easy craft that you can make after your wedding! If you like, you could even make it before hand and have it ready, or I love the idea of one of the bridesmaids making one and surprising the bride and groom with it once they get home! How cute would that be?! Here’s how to make your own…

DIY Just Married Door Mat Spray Paint Rustoleum Cricut Newlywed Project Tutorial-1 DIY Just Married Door Mat Spray Paint Rustoleum Cricut Newlywed Project Tutorial-6

YOU WILL NEED:

A door mat // Spraint paint in the colours of your choice (we used Rustoleum Candy Pink and Rustoleum Berry Pink) // Rustoleum Crystal Clear Protective Coat // A Cricut machine* // Just Married Template** // Cardstock // tape // newspaper //

*If you don’t have a Cricut then fret not! You can still create the DIY, you’ll just need to draw the stencil onto card using a ruler and pencil, then cut out the pieces using a stanley knife

**We’ve included the Just Married template above, but if you’re using a bigger size mat (like me) you’ll probably need to cut out the ‘JUST’ first on one piece of card, followed by ‘MAR’ and then ‘RIED’ also on separate pieces of card. The templates for these are here: ‘JUST‘ , ‘MAR‘ , ‘RIED

DIY Just Married Door Mat Spray Paint Rustoleum Cricut Newlywed Project Tutorial-4 DIY Just Married Door Mat Spray Paint Rustoleum Cricut Newlywed Project Tutorial-3

STEP 1:

Either upload the templates to the Cricut design space and set your machine to cut out the card stock or as said above, cut out the stencils by free hand.

STEP 2:

Once everything is cut out you’ll want to tape the templates down to the mat, making sure that they’re secure. I used double sided tape to stick the middle of the A’s, D’s, etc down.

DIY PUNNY COCKTAIL SHAKER

diy-punny-graphic-cocktail-shaker-club-crafted-2

If you’re already dreaming of the weekend then today’s DIY is for you my friend! Holly from Club Crafted is back with this super fun cocktail shaker DIY! I mean why pour your drinks from a regular shaker when you can pun it up?! Over to Holly…

I, Holly, love a good cocktail and a good pun. After starting to mess around with new cocktail recipes these last few months, I started collecting pretty shakers and there was just one thing missing…puns!

Naturally, shaking up a cocktail always makes me think of “Shake it Off” by Taylor Swift, so I thought it was the perfect line for making a simple punny cocktail shaker. With some colorful vinyl and my Cricut machine, this was really simple to make and adds a little humour to my drink-making.

Vinyl is a great craft supply for a variety of projects, and even though I used a cutting machine, you don’t necessarily need one. Just keep in mind it will require more work to cut with a knife. Here’s how to make a punny cocktail shaker of your own!

YOU WILL NEED:

Plastic cocktail shaker (I purchased this small one) // Colorful vinyl // Cutting machine OR alphabet stencil with craft knife // Cricut vinyl transfer tape //

STEP 1:

Wash and dry the shaker first.

MAKE THIS CUTE DIY HEART LOLLIPOP PIÑATA

DIY Heart Lollipop Piñata for Valentines Day party fun pinata tutorial-10

So it’s one week to go until Valentines Day and we’ve still got some super cute DIYs to share to with you for the big day! Today we’re welcoming Patricia from Hello Eventos to the blog, she’s going to be sharing with you how you can make this ridiculously cute heart lollipop piñata! So without further ado, over to you Patricia…

DIY Heart Lollipop Piñata for Valentines Day party fun pinata tutorial-11

Hey! I would like to start by introducing myself. My name is Patricia and I’m a party stylist and blogger at Hello Eventos in Spain. Let me tell you that I’m super glad to be on Bespoke Bride today and even more for a Valentines Day DIY piñata! As a party lover, I’m crazy for the day that we celebrate LOVE and every year I do something special for my valentine. This year I was thinking of creating a piñata and what’s better than a heart lollipop?! Heart lollipops are one of my favorite treats. I filled the piñata with lots of them and can’t wait to open it back up and share all of the candy! Let’s do it!

YOU WILL NEED:

Cardboard (I upcycled a big box from a delivery) // A cardboard tube // Red and white crepe paper // Scissors // Glue gun // Treats and confetti // Rope or lace //

STEP 1:

First we need to shape the heart so cut 2 cardboard hearts and 2 stripes out of your cardboard.

STEP 2:

Hot glue the stripes to the first heart. Leave 10cm of the bottom end of one of the stripes without glue because this will be the door way for the candies. Next, hot glue the second half on top.

STEP 3:

Using your glue gun, adhere the cardboard tube to the bottom of the heart then cut the word LOVE out of the cardboard. Fix the rope or lace to the inside of the door way and attach the word LOVE at the end of the rope.
