DIY aisle runner - MONOGRAM AND PETAL - UPDATE!

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody,

 

Yesterday, I start working on my DIY aisle runner. I've look on internet and it was tooooooo expensive for me. So I decide to do one by myself.

 

My aisle runner is brown and the petals are tiffany blue. I have a turquoise rubbon that I glue all around it.

 

The first step was to do the monogram! OUFFF! It was suuuuper long. Because my aisle was brown and I had to paint it 2 times to have the color that I want.

 

The second step was to glue the rubbon. I start using fabric glue but it's scrap... It is long to dry. So we change for glue gun. BETTER!

 

The final step was to glue the petals. I'm currently doing it. I have to glue around 4000 petals! fencing.gif Really tricky! But I have a wonderful boyfriend that is helping me glue all the petals!

 

Picture are coming for tonight! PROMISE! smile123.gif

Hey girls!

 

Here is the picture.

First, you need to cover your table. Because the glue gun is hot and your table don't like that! rofl.gif

You need to roll your aisle runner. Because if you have 25 ft. like us that a long piece of fabric.

We used 200 petals per 14 inches. That the cover that it give.

Finally, it's the monogram that I've paint yesterday (around 6hrs of painting). I know i'm slow but you need to take your time when you do a monogram. The first coat of paint was done with my laptop with a projector. The image was on the wall that I've cover with wax paper. The second coat was done on my kitchen table. (Sorry I don't have any picture for the process of painting)

That's it! I want opinion!

Ooo great idea!! I would love this with pink/white petals scattered along the edge, and then beach brides wouldn't have to worry about their petals flying away in the wind!

 

Yours looks wonderful, lots of petals left to go :) I wish I could come help, glue gun in hand.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
