No Mess Aisle Runners

Recommended Posts

Good Morning Ladies!

 

I know there were a few comments within a forum about no mess aisle runners that were found on WeddingBee... But I can't seem to find that thread so I thought I'd create a new forum especially for these aisle runners. I'm hoping we can share tips, tricks and pictures. :o)

 

I ordered my rose petals from Ebay.

Here is the sellers page if anyone is interested. http://www.ebay.com/itm/330701699382?var=540058228007&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

 

I purchased the following:

1000 Cream

2000 Hot Pink

1000 Orange

1000 Pink

 

I was surprised by the size of my package I received..

700

 but then relized I needed to peel the petals apart. There are 100 per package.

 

Last night I started peeling and got about 600 of each color. So far I have almost a full grocery sack of each color. I'll post pictures tonight. Hopefully I can start affixing these to my tulle by Wednesday. :o) (School tonight and tomorrow.)

 

If anyone has already completed their aisle runners, I would love to see pictures! Also curious as to how many petals you had to use or plan to use.  I purchased (2) rolls of 6 inch x 25 foot white tulle from HobbyLobby while it was on sale for 50% off.

So how do you attach them to the tulle? And then it's one long piece of tulle you roll back up and bring it with you to the resort? I haven't heard of this before! Another DIY I love it :)

 I just completed at least 10 feet. My eyes and back are killing me! lol.. I attached the petals with hot glue to the tulle. To store/travel I will simply roll it up. :o)

Ahhh, you're always one step ahead of me.  We were talking about this in the May 2013 thread, so you wouldn't have found it in a thread search. I've been distracting myself with other quick DIY projects, I'm a bit reluctant to take this on because I know it will time consuming and to get a the petals in the colors I want will be more than I wanted to spend.  You're off to a great start so far.  Keep us posted with your progress and tips and tricks.

Ahh.. I thought that was where it was!.. but we talk sooo much I couldn't find it. lol.

I think I only spent $20 on petals. :o) I've completed at least 10 foot and have just barely dented my stash. I started the project last night after school and was amazed at how much I completed.

 

Best Tip.. Don't use wax paper!!!! I don't know where I read this, but it was the worst tip I have ever read. :o( Wax paper did not want to let go of my tulle and I ripped a few holes. I am now using a baking sheet that I sprayed down with PAM..  you don't have to fight with the pan to let go.. :o) This made things go by much smoother and faster. :o)

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
