These DIY love filled baubles could not be easier to make! You can fill them with whatever you like which makes the possibilities pretty much infinite. I’ve filled mine with pom poms, feathers and love hearts. If you can’t face making them you can also buy them in my shop.
Consider this my DIY resume. I wanted to show you what qualifies me as a “DIY Bride” by sharing some of the details we DIYed for our wedding. There was no way I could possibly fit everything into one post so here’s the highlights. I will be posting tutorials for some of these very soon but if anyone has any questions feel free to ask!
I am completely obsessed with ribbon. When I first saw ribbon wands on Pinterest as an alternative to confetti I instantly knew I HAD to have them at our wedding. I had a quick look online and they seemed simple enough to make so I just got the bits I thought I needed and had a play. This tutorial is the method I found worked best and quickest. As I have mentioned before, sometime’s it’s not cheaper to DIY something for your wedding. With these ribbon wands I found they worked out about the same price as buying them pre-made. However, by making them yourself, you can create something that is exactly how you want it. You can use ribbon, fabric, lace, string, bells, pom poms, sequins or whatever your heart desires! You can even paint the sticks or add flags or whatever takes your fancy. So get creative! Once you know how you’ll be surprised how easy (and fun!) they are to make.
More and more venues are insisting n bio-degradable confetti these days which, while great for the environment, can leave a big dent in your budget. A quick online search and, on average, it’s costing £1.10 per guest. Now that doesn’t sound like much but when you multiply it by 60 it’s another expense you don’t need when you could just as easily do it yourself.
