The Wedding DIY Madness Continues...

I am DETERMINED to use my crafty prowess for the good of the wedding! No longer will having a cold, and too much laundry, and a full time job stand in my way. I am on a mission to complete my list of wedding DIY projects. Geoff is out of town on a business trip again, so I am using this time to do some super crafting. I even started this weekend on a bunch of them, making a big trip to a couple of craft stores and gathering all my supplies. I began the super-messy task of gluing moss to paper mache letters last night-here they are in progress (I promise to do a full tutorial when they are complete):

We will hang them on the doors to the reception
(and hopefully they will look something like this:)


The rest of the projects on my list:

• Burlap "Just Married" Pennant Banner (a la this beauty from funkyshique on etsy)

• Boutonnieres (with chocolate striped ribbon and yellow billy balls-so cute! Image via Wedding Dress 2010)

• "Bride" & "Groom" Wooden Signs on the backs of our chairs (loving this free printable from Lucky & Lovely. Mine will be similar, but on wooden plaques with chocolate striped ribbon.)

• Painted People Cake Toppers ( I ordered this "paint your own" set from Goose Grease on Etsy and am planning on painting them to look like us. Have to wait till we pick out G's tie though...)

Wish me luck!
