DIY Wedding Décor

Owner of Upsy-Daisy in White Bear Lake, Danielle Rode, stopped by the TCL studio with some DIY Wedding Décor items perfect for your next celebration.

  1. Chair Decorations for Bride & Groom

Materials:
Scissors
Ribbon in wedding colors
Floral garland

Prepare ribbon:
-Choose your color combination.
-Cut ribbon into approximately 3 foot strips. depending on the width of the ribbon you will need to cut between 3-5 strips for each color.
Assemble:
-Wrap the strips horizontal, and tie against the side of the chair making sure it is as tight as possible so they do not slide down.
-Trim off the excess ribbon on the side.

Floral garland:
-Attach the floral garland to the chair by across the top, and then draped down the side – so it covers the where the ribbon was tied. you can use thin ribbon or floral wire to attach the garland.

 

  1. Place Cards

Materials:
Tiles sheets
Metallic sharpies
Pencil
Nail file or sand paper
Nail polish remover + Q-tips (for mistakes!)
Vinyl lettering (if you will not hand-write)

Prepare the tiles:
– Remove the tiles from the mesh.
-If any tiles have left over glue shards from being glued to the mesh sheet, simply use a nail file or sand paper to gently sand and remove them from the tile.

Lettering:
There are three options for lettering: hand lettering, tracing or using vinyl letters.
– Hand lettering:  use your choice of metallic sharpie.
-Tracing: print out your guests names using your favorite fonts and do your best to copy or trace onto each tile. trace with a pencil first and then follow with the sharpie.
-Vinyl lettering:  use a vinyl cutting machine to create the names and table numbers in the font of your choice. apply vinyl letters to the tiles per the instructions of the vinyl cutting machine.
