Frosted Candle Jars

We are rapidly approaching Christmas so I thought its time to find a DIY festive project to add to a seasonal finishing touch to winter/christmas weddings. Jam jars are very in at the moment and this seemed like a reasonable simple DIY project to undertake – if not for thisyear, may be 2013 Christmas. Any way this following Video was created by Hobbycraft and the more detailed tutorial can be found [button link=”http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/Pages/Ideas/Idea.aspx?id=1480″ linkTarget=”_blank” color=”rosy”]here[/button] Frosted Candle Jars

DIY Favour – ‘Pie in a Jar’ wedding Favour

Planning a wedding can be a little overwhelming, so the last thing that you might want to do is start fiddling with bits of glitter, paper and bows. But making your own wedding favours does not have to be that way. When planning your wedding favours, think simple, economical and something that your guests will actually want, not something they are likely to throw away the next day meaning all your hard work goes to waste!

Get your baking cap on and make some delicious treats for your guests. Of course, like all other favours, family and friends can lend you a helping hand in the kitchen. We love these really cute ‘Pie in a Jar’ wedding favours, which can also double up as your dessert – learn how to make them on Green Wedding Shoes.

DIY: Wine Cork Placecard holders

These Wine Cork Placecard Holders can be bought (£5.95/per set of 4) at Fabulousfavours.co.uk,  but if your feeling creative and have been saving up corks (for what every reason – I’m not asking)  this could be a fabulous and simple DIY project for you to undertake. If you can handle drinking a few bottles of wine to save up for this DIY, then I think you’ll be in the clear, supply-wise.

Supplies:

  • 1 wine cork per place setting
  • Razor blade or X-acto (craft) knife
  • Cardstock
  • Calligraphy pen
  • Optional: Hot glue gun and magnet strip

To hear the steps, read more.

Here’s how:

  1. Using the razor blade or craft knife, slice off one side of the cork lengthwise, so it can lay flat on the table. Make sure to use a fresh (sharp) blade, otherwise the cork may crumble.
  2. Then, with the cork set flat on the table, make a slice down the middle lengthwise, but not all the way through.
