Shae's DIY Centerpieces, Favors, Swizzle Sticks & Escort Cards

Recommended Posts

hi ladies! just wanted to share my diy stuff...

 

:: centerpiece ::

inspiration :: instead of using river rocks as a filler i'm going to use beach sand so it's one less thing to bring to mexico and i'll save money! i might buy a few artificial flowers or purchase single stems at a florist in mexico.

i bought these wooden planters at ikea which are about $5 each. i might tie a ribbon around it. i'm not sure if i should paint them white or if i should leave them raw for a more natural, beachy feel. not sure yet. thoughts?

since real sea fans won't pass through customs i'm going to buy artificial ones and maybe paint them or leave as is since red is one of wedding colors.

Looks really great!!! I like the wood boxes natural, then with the red sea fans, very sharp. Plus paint them white and they might get scuffed on the trip down.

 

I've made the magnets before, really great craft to do while watching an old movie. I've also seen them sell at a store here for 4 for $12!!!

Here are the instructions I used.

not martha — to make: marble magnets

To dress up the back/hide the paper try some sparkle glue.

 

I love this DIY section. So many crafty ladies on here, watch out Martha Stewart!

Everything looks great! Your centerpieces are going to look really cool - I agree, I would keep the boxes natural. And the magnets & placecards are adorable!
