Chunky DIY Letters & Numbers…

Today we bring you a super cool and easy DIY project! I absolutely LOVE these bubble letters and numbers created by our very own Mr & Mrs Unique supplier Alice from Fleur De Lace. Whether you use them as table numbers, on signage or displayed on a feature wall, they really add a vibrant, colourful and fun element to your big day.

You can catch this DIY and lots of other wedding inspiration in our new Online Magazine which is totally free to read! You can see it here:

Enjoy an autumnal walk collecting interesting shaped leaves as you go! Make sure they are malleable and not too stiff otherwise they won’t stay in place. Mix PVA glue with a little water to make a ‘papier mache’ style paste.
