Today I’m sharing a couple of DIY projects and making a little hommage to my FAVOURITE blog in the whole of history and cyberspace, Design*Sponge.
For those of you who don’t know it (where have you been?) it’s my idea of heaven… design and interiors inspiration, creative fuel for the mind and stunning style. Although interiors based they have a monthly wedding feature and have regular DIY posts which get me pretty excited.
DIY Log Dome Display Jar
This really harks back to the kind of decor thats very cool over on the US wedding blogs and has been for some time. It’s a quirky, rustic, retro look and the reason I wanted to share this is that it is a great example of the kind of thing I fancied emulating in my planning days but felt was impossible to recreate on this side of the pond… not any more ladies!
DIY Tin Can lanterns
If Lanterns are your thing, Design*Sponge also has a super easy Paper lantern DIY (above) also by Karen at MaggieMakes. Some clever person even thought they would make a cute little gift (the one above was taken as a thank you to the hosts of a BBQ party,) but they’d be gorgeous little favours for your guests, especially if they matched some you hand made for the wedding – a perfect reminder :).
Perfectly tiny floral displays
My last little offering is a little self indulgent as I completely fell in love with this when it was first posted back in April… if somebody would just make these as little center pieces at their wedding, I’d be one very happy blogger.
They’re rustic to say the least and you don’t see many wild violets in these parts, but I think these would look super cute with little purple and yellow violets from your average garden centre or any number of other minature plants. Perfect in spring time and for smaller gatherings. Line the glass with moss too if you don’t want to see any soil and you’ll find that local charity shops and car boots are positively overflowing with these kind of glasses – which get a whole new spin when they’re the receptacle for these beautiful miniature blooms.
I hope these ideas have stretched your imagination a little about the decor options available to you… do let us know if you’ll be attempting any of these for your day or if Design*Sponge is on your daily blog stop list. I can’t stay away!
