So my wedding is less than three months away-woah!
I am absolutely thrilled that we are under the 100 day mark (double digits baby)!
So this past Sunday, my roommates and I worked on creating some decorations for the wedding. I had run some ideas by Trevor and I couldn’t really gauge his thoughts, so I went for it.
We started out making bunting. I do not have a sewing machine here unfortunately, so I had to make do and buy some Liquid Stitch.
I made templates in advance, so Katrina and I could just pin them down and cut out our fabric! I had been shopping for fabric for weeks. Target had some options I liked, but Trevor wasn’t a fan. We had kind of reached a dead end, since we didn’t need much. We were at Bride to Be Consignment when we found our answer. They had a bunch of table runners for sale. I found some in a grey/silver color. They were marked down to $1.25 a piece! I grabbed two, not knowing how much fabric I would need.
We cut out 12 “large” triangles and 19 “small” triangles. I don’t remember the exact dimensions, but I created my own templates, which was super simple.
Anna brought some tissue paper from home and worked on tassles. We followed this awesome tutorial I found on Pinterest (you can find it here). It was super simple, and the results are fantastic!
The first batch, there was an error in one of the cuts, so Katie and I messed around with them. Still pretty cute though, right?
Anna also did some super cute doily garland for me! I dubbed her crafter of the night! She made it through two whole projects! You can find a tutorial here. It’s basically what we did, except that we used glue instead of double-sided tape.
So what was Katie doing during craft night? We placed her in charge of PIZZA DUTY! She ordered us a delicious pizza and garlic knots from Papa Johns. We are forever grateful for the time and commitment she put into her task. 🙂
