I am doing the centerpieces for my brother's wedding.....his bride's parents pretty much refused to help with any of her ideas for the wedding (and her dad is the minister), SOOOOO, she doesn't even care anymore!
The last thing she said to me about the centerpieces was "as long as it's pretty"......ack! can we say PRESSURE?
SO, with a tiny (NO) budget
, here is at least part of what I have come up with.....
Dollar store candlesticks with a dollar store plate secured to the top (using earthquake putty), both have been decoupaged with an aqua (glittery) tissue paper. (many thanks to Alwaysinmyroom for introducing me to the art of decoupage and the amazing stuff that is Modge Podge!
) The one in the picture still needs another layer of paper so that it is less "patchy". The edges need to be cleaned up, but since I am not finished adding the paper, they are still a bit messy in the pic.
I LOVE it, now, all I can do, is hope that the bride does, too!
UPDATE***I found some glue for GLASS (practically IMPOSSIBLE to find!) and I am testing it to see if it will work instead of the putty....it is supposed to dry clear.....the putty is white.....plus, then it will be permanent! YAY!
Today is the day!
Here is one of the centerpieces in action yesterday when we set up for the reception. I ended up making about 700 paper roses! And the numbers are made with microscope slides!
