If your wedding colors include "metallics" as you say, then the BEST thing I can recommend is:
spray paint them with krylon, either silver or gold....krylon metallic sprays are really cool on fake flowers (very funky look), and you can get for $4.50-ish a can at walmart.

either that, or spray paint MATTE BLACK, and then embellish with metallic paints, powders, glitter, etc etc...

you are probably never gonna get pink flowers to turn a clean white: you would not be "dyeing" (adding color) as you say, you would actually need to be "bleaching" (removing color), and that will be hard with synthetic materials, which is likely what they are made of.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / GIFTS for Ring Bearer and Flower Girls: "The ASK" on: July 21, 2016 04:44:06 PM
Howdy, Craftsters!

Been away from this community for TOO LONG  Cry glad to be back! Seeing as how I just got engaged a month ago, and I am DIY-ing as much as I can for our October 2017 wedding, you will probably be seeing a lot more of me in the coming months, especially on this board  Grin

HERE ARE MY FIRST WEDDING CRAFTS: GIFTS FOR THE RING BEARER AND FLOWER GIRLS! Made in our wedding colors/style because I am OCD like that!

They are for my future hubby's nephew and nieces. Though we are not doing any bridesmaids or groomsmen, we really want to include the kids in some way, so we are asking them to be our RB and FGs. I will present them these gifts when we ask them next week (already have their mom's blessing  Wink )

Here's the whole kit and caboodle Smiley


Flower girls will each receive a simple bouquet in a gift bag; figured they can display these in their room, and every time they see the flowers, they will get excited and think of the wedding!


He will get this mysterious gift box

...when he opens it, it will be filled with RING POPS

And then the message inside the lid will ask him to be our ring bearer!!!

Welp, that's it for today's post! Thank you so much for looking; feel free to comment with any questions or feedback: I got all the supplies at Dollar Tree, and it was very easy and affordable to make these (all done in one session of less than 2 hours, and for about $15 total)

I am so excited for the wedding; we still have over a year, but I am so obsessed with getting my crafting started Smiley

LUDI: glad you love your items: the mask was a piece i made for my (now closed) Etsy shop, and it would be a shame to let it keep sitting in a box with other inventory, when it can have a nice new home with YOU!!!

isn't it funny that we BOTH made brains out of yarn? Smiley

Here are some pics:
Here is the AMAZING embroidery I received from LUDI:

I love it so much; it means "Think On Your Feet" in Latin  Grin

And here are the items I made FOR Ludi (she already received, so no spoilers here):

It is a home decor item (good for a desk) that I made using a plastic skull, a brain that I crocheted (no pattern!), doll eyes, wire wrapped glasses that i made, and other odds and ends....

This is a fridge magnet made with a bottle cap, dolls arms, hot glue, and plastic pins

And this is a snowflake holiday ornament made of plastic skeleton parts

I LOVE what I received from Ludi, and I hope she loves what i made for her
(I also threw in a bonus surprise: a polymer clay Bride of Frankenstein mask I made a while back, bc she she said she LOVEs Bride of Frankenstein)...

oh, and hands are probably my number one favorite too bc, as someone else already said, when u think about the breadth of WORK that a pair of hands do in a life time (especially busy crafty hands like ours) it really is mind blowing, and almost spiritual!
