Tiny Budget Big Bang

You can limit the kinds of alcohol served at your wedding. You can do Beer and Wine and forget all that different kinds of drinks with mixers and such...

What type of city do you live in.. Small and Rural or Mid Sized and Suburban or Large and Urban that can help distinguish the kind of venues you have....

Outside weddings are nice, but sometimes you have to rent chairs and that gets expensive...

A strolling dinner, horsdeurves reception is sometimes easier on the budget but that is not always true...

How many people are we talking 300 -200 - 100 it factors in alot of things to.. Check out your local colleges and see if they have spaces for rent for weddings...

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Portable Chandeliers on: October 29, 2007 07:09:05 AM
I did this last year for Halloween and pulled them out again this year.

I gathered several chandeleirs and or hanging light fixtures from freecycle and craigslist. I wired additional lengths of wire. ( 12 feet) and a plug.. Spray painted them black and put the lowest wattage bulbs in them I could.. I can create a halloween lounge space anywhere I want by having a hanging fixture to center them around. I have made a white ones for a friends birthday and we hung them from trees for their backyard party...

the wire and plugs cost me about $10 per chandeleir but the fixtures themselves were free.. so $10 for a portable chandelier

That is absolutely beautiful...

I wish I had the patience and the skill to do something like that....

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Winged Suits on: October 11, 2007 12:20:59 PM
So I just completed these for a movie I was working on and I thought they might be cool to sell to. I have no idea what price point to start them at so I figured I would show them to you guys and see what you thought..

The suits are Salvation Army/Value Village Suit Coats without rips or holes or tears... so they are decent but not new...



Sorry I cannot post pictures of them but here are the links

Let me know what you think about them? We are coming up with other designs.... Was wondering what I should charge for them

Thanks Cheera,

I read the posting about no sales carefully before I posted this link. I thought I was sticking by the guidelines and I will be more careful next time..

I am a long time 3 years+ reader of craftster and thought this was the first thing that I had made that was worthy of posting here..

The paint that we used was actually a mixture of spray paint and regular interior paint, so no getting it wet will not make it run, but I think the suitcoat would need to be dry cleaned..

I do this too.. You don't have to use sticky stuff. I use cardboard for one offs and I use fun foam or foam core for ones that I want to keep around.

It is so easy and fun...
