I'm back for Wedding Wednesday! I can't believe it's been over five months since I got married! Time sure does fly. Even though my wedding is over, it doesn't mean the wedding projects are. After my wedding, my mom kept my bridal bouquet and dried the flowers for me. I had no idea what to do with my dried bouquet, so I decided to make some ornaments for myself, my parents, and my husband's parents.
I'm really happy with the way they turned out, and I think our families liked them too. I couldn't wait to give them to them at Christmas, so they got them at Thanksgiving :) But they would make great Christmas presents!
Here's what you need:
Clear Glass (or plastic) Ornaments (got mine from Hobby Lobby for 50% off)
Alphabet and Number Stickers
Take the top off the ornament and carefully slide your petals in, one by one. I thought this would be difficult, but my petals were actually soft, not hard and brittle like I thought they would be. I didn't have any problems with them breaking when I carefully folded them to stick them in the ornament.
Once you have your ornament as full as you want it, put your top back on and decide what you want written on your ornament. I put our names on one side and our wedding date on the other, using the alphabet and number stickers.
You could even add a cute ribbon to the top, but I decided not to do that on ours. I love having another keep sake from our wedding, something that we can put on our Christmas tree for years to come! I'm also glad I was able to make some of these for our families, so they can enjoy them too.
What do you think? Have you done any fun wedding projects AFTER the wedding was over?
