There are lots of different parts to a wedding. There are also lots of things that you have to buy or make for a wedding. For the ceremony itself and the ceremonial parts to the reception, you need a few things. They can get really expensive or they can be something that you want to make yourself. Let’s take a look into some wedding accessories crafts that you can do for your wedding.
If you are using candles, either for the Unity candle or for centerpieces at the reception, you can actually make your own candle. It is so easy to make your own candle, but it takes a long time. If you want to make a candle your own, but don’t want to spend hours making one, try decorating the outside of it. Melt some crayons and use the colored wax from them to make patterns and designs on the candles. It is much cheaper than buying wax from a candle making store, by just using crayons. They work exactly the same. You can also add scents to the candles as well. Make the candles your own and perfect for the centerpieces. You can design whatever you want.
Wedding bouquets are pretty easy to make. First, decide on what kind of flowers you are going to be using. Either fake, real or a mix of both. You will need to make sure the flowers stay hydrated all day or they will start to look bad and will start drooping a couple hours after they have been cut. If it a warm day, they will start drooping in a half an hour. Use colors from your theme or your wedding colors. You can also buy all the supplies at a supercenter or a craft store. You can even buy the flower holder and it makes it really easy. You pretty much only have to decide how it will look and what materials you want to use. Plan ahead and remember that it takes a while to make the bouquet perfect.
To decorate a flower girl basket, buy a plain basket in the color and shape you want. Then buy ribbon and flowers to put on it. Use colors and flowers from your theme for your wedding. Wrap the ribbon around the basket. Put the flowers in the corner where the basket handles meet the actual basket. Be creative and use a hot glue gun to attach everything.
To make a ring bearer pillow you can either make a pillow your self, or buy a general one and then decorate it yourself. Making a pillow isn’t hard but buying one isn’t expensive either. Either way, stitch the initials or names of the bride and groom onto the pillow. You can even stitch the date on too. Make sure to use a white thread, unless the bride and groom want you to use their wedding colors. You can use a shiny white thread so that you can actually see the embroidery.
There are lots of fun ways to make your wedding truly something that you created. You won’t be able to make everything, because they all take so much time, but they can all be something special to treasure for years and years.
