Also, the raffia curls much more than this, but again- mine was packed to and from Mexico- so they straighten out a little via travel.   Let me know if you have any other questions! :) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And they really aren't that hard to make- I think two of us made 6 of them in about an hour and a half and we were girl talking the whole time- so you know how that slows things down! :) 


Great job! I think I'm going to try making these too...they look awesome!

    Thanks!

     

    They aren't very hard to make- just a little time consuming since there are a few steps to them! :)  PM me if you have any questions! :)

              I got these fish bowls at the dollar store for $1, but these are glass.  I guess you are worried about traveling with glass.  Good Luck!

              I found some beautiful fake green orchids at Michael's and they're 50% off. We'll bring those, rocks and candles. I still need to talk to my WC about renting vases, I really dont want to bring them with me. I'll do a bunch of tealights around the vases on each table.

              And YAY for me for figuring out how to do this whole picture posting thing. :)


              i like this one!! pretty
