DIY wedding silhouettes idea

diy_silhouettes

Silhouette art has charmed us for centuries. Now, it’s making a comeback, especially at weddings.

One does not automatically associate Country Living Magazine with weddings but, they have some amazing ideas in there. Like the DIY silhouette board. Country Living Magazine displays at an entry way for notes and messages, but it would be perfect at a wedding for guests to leave their well wishes. After the wedding you can use it as at the entry way.

Below are instructions.

STEP 1. Download and print our profile templates, then use a photocopier to enlarge them by 130 percent.

STEP 2. Center each enlarged profile on an 11- by 17-inch corkboard ($4.99 per board; craftsetc.com), and trace around it with a pen.

STEP 3. Working on a protected surface, such as a chopping block or self-healing mat, slowly score the pen lines with an X-Acto knife. Because of the cork’s thickness, you’ll need to go over each cut several times before slicing all the way through.

STEP 4. Spray the silhouettes with two coats of flat black paint, let dry overnight, and hang with adhesive mounting strips ($2.49 for nine; officedepot.com).

Download the profile templates here from Country Living Magazine

DIY wedding flowers + make your own napkins

makeourownnapkins1

We love the idea of anything DIY, makes for great photos, lovely memories and great table conversation at the wedding. Great design does not have to cost a lot, especially if you do it yourself.

Cans with colorful graphics make unexpected, offbeat vases and can be super cheap. Plus you get something to eat out of it as well. www.flowerbud.com sells Grand Boxes which include plenty of flowers to create multiple bouquets. The above peonies are from flowerbud.com.

This offbeat idea was taken from Glamour Magazine and photographed by Stuart Tyson Making your own wedding napkins might take a bit of prepping but in the end you will be so thrilled. Especially if after the wedding you have some cute napkins to remember your special day. www.purlbee.com teaches you exactly how to whip out some handmade napkins. She also has an addicting site www.purlsoho.com that has some amazing fabrics, patterns, books whatever you need. The bundle of fabric above is www.purlsoho.com

If you are wondering where the absolutely adorable fabric above is from, wonder no more it is from www.warmbiscuit.com (love that name).
