Wedding Projects

So I haven’t been doing a lot of blogging lately but I have been getting some projects done that I thought you might enjoy!

P5160001Project #1 - Pearl hair pins.

My hairdresser for the wedding thought it would be nice to have flowers or something in my hair, since my dress has pearls on it I made my own designer hair pins! All I did was put a dab of hot glue on the hair pin and then set one or more pearls in place. to cool I grabbed the closest thing to me…. don’t laugh, it worked really well I thought! :)


Project #2 – Flower girl dress.

This is my Mom, a.k.a. Master Seamstress. As I’ve been playing with hot glue she has been working very hard on the flower girl dress and it is almost finished, I’ll have to post a picture of the final product.


Project #3 – Ring bearer pillow.

Believe it or not I didn’t use one drop of hot glue for this whole project! Aren’t you proud of me? My family was because I hand stitched the ribbons in place, Mom used the sewing machine for the edges, then I stuffed it and sewed up the rest. It was a lot of fun. By the way, that is not one of our real wedding bands tied to the pillow, just a cheap, silver band I had in the jewelry box.


Project #4 – Bird seed and Tulle Circles.

This is pretty self explanatory, The thin ribbon(1/8”) we cut about 7 inches long and the wider ribbon (1/2”) is around 9 inches long. When I told Kenny that I was putting these together he asked why we were supplying our guests with ammo! 



This last picture is (left to right) the Unity Candle, Program basket, Mrs. Spencer’s supply basket – she is the “Day-of-wedding-coordinator” and as such she needed some supplies…Final payments and thank you’s, tape, breath mints, band aids, Tylenol, handcuffs and brass knuckles for unruly guests, etc. :) and once again the ring bearer pillow. Can you tell I like polka-dots yet?


  1. I love the polka dots and am really impressed with your pillow, very unique. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love the idea of making your own wedding crafts! We only did favors, but I wish I had done more. Thanks for linking this up to Wicked Awesome Wednesday!
