Hooray!!! After four hours of hard work, we have 11 tissue paper flowers and 22 sheet music wheels!
(Note: We are only about half way on the sheet music and a third on the flowers, but who cares!!!)
I’m getting married in a barn on an organic farm- Jorgensen Farms. It is so beautiful. I cannot wait. Drew will be there. That is what matters most.
But, just to feed that
crazy, lovable, DIY/craft-loving girl in me…here are a few things we did today…
Mom (right) and Cynthia- best friends and great crafters!
Hooray for tissue paper and sheet music!
The fundamental components of our DIY Barn Wedding:
Martha Stewart has a great tutorial on making tissue paper flowers. It is SO much cheaper to buy tissue paper in bulk (I got mine here from a site called Nashville Wraps) and do them yourself rather than buy the Martha Stewart or David Tutera packets. Youtube a video tutorial…we had to watch one a few times…
The sheet music wheels came along nicely…I found giant stacks of sheet music in an antique store, and I used one sheet to make one wheel (halve the sheet to make)…
Pause for some iced tea and more yummy snacks (this time a quick antipasti platter…)
Mom and Cynthia did the flowers, I did the wheels.
Ta-da!!! 1/2 of 1/3 of the centerpieces is finished 🙂
