I’m delighted to share with you this DIY on how to create an alternative foliage look. Deck the walls, create a backdrop or table runner. If you don’t have the machine to get your sew on, use hot glue instead!

What you need…

Sewing Machine and thread, paper, pencil, scissors and string.

Instructions:

1. Layer the paper and make a stencil so that you can draw around your leaf shape and cut out a few layers at a time.

2. Fold the leaves so you have a 3D effect. You can fold them in wads to save time. I pinched up to ¾ of the way up the leaf.

3. Set the sewing machine to a wide zigzag.

4. Sew in a straight line with your zigzag stitch up the string, adding the leaves at regular intervals.

5. You could sew to any length you want. I used around 30 leaves for each meter of garland.

The stitched string makes an awesome raw look. Hope you have fun, and you could use any shape and any colour.

Happy Creating

Make your own Chunky Letters & Numbers…

Wedding signage is a fabulous way of [stating the obvious] letting your guests know exactly what is going on. Directional ‘This Way’ kind of signs and functional ‘Sit here’ type signs both guide the guests and help your day run smoothly.

I wanted to share a fun way of creating lettering that can be used for your wedding, be it wall art, signs or as the ‘how to’ shows table numbers.

Bits you need…

Card, wadding, tissue paper, ribbon, tape, glue and scissors.

How to do it…

Cut out your shape, I’ve opted for a number 2 (because although I’m 31 when I say it I smile ever so slightly.)
