Ring bearer pillows are one of the essential parts to a wedding. They along with the flower basket must look elegant and beautiful. There are lots of different ways to make your own or at least design your own ring bearer pillow. Let’s take a look at some ring bearer pillow crafts.
First, you can either make your own pillow or buy a ready made one from the store. Each way it’s lovely. The ready made ones from the store will vary slightly from store to store, but they should all be ok to change and alter. If you make your own, don’t forget about these tips.
Make sure to use the best material you can find. The pillow will be kept for years and years and it should stay white and looking like it was just made yesterday. There are lots of materials that will last for a long time without changing colors (including materials that wedding dresses are made of so check them out) so make sure that you do your research before going to the material store and buying material for the pillow. Also you will want the pillow to be perfect. You will probably want to hand sew the last part of the pillow. Take your time and do each stitch slowly and carefully making sure that each stitch is the same length as the one before it.
When you decorate the pillow, use a satin or other shiny white material. You will want it to stand out a little but only when you are actually looking at the pillow and not be able to see things from across the room.
You can add things like pearls or gems. It will look lovely. You can add things like fake diamonds or other silvery materials. You can also use small amounts of the colors of your wedding for things like ribbon or other types of trim. Use them only in small amounts and only if you think it will look good.
Don’t forget about using ribbon and trims. You only need a small amount. You don’t have to completely border the pillow in ribbon, but you can use small amounts in the middle and going out or flowing off the pillow.
Also, add your initials or names on the pillow. It will help make the pillow more special and really your own. You can add things like the date or a quote about marriage and love as well. It shouldn’t have too much on it, but the pillow should look lovely and simple. It doesn’t have to be overflowing to look beautiful.
When you design the pillow make sure that you design it first and then start sewing. You don’t want to have to start over or change something in the middle of decorating the pillow. It will look bad and really like you messed up and tried to change something.
