Making homemade wedding decorations is a fun and inexpensive way to add a personal touch to your wedding. The color blue is a popular wedding color and it can be incorporated simply into homemade wedding decorations. This article will provide you with detailed instructions on how to create several inexpensive homemade blue wedding decorations.
Creating a blue garland for your wedding can be inexpensive; for this homemade decoration you will need various blue cupcake liners, a hole puncher, big blue colored wooden beads, and thin ribbon. Start this homemade wedding decoration craft by flattening all of the cupcake liners and punching a hole in the center of them.
Next string a couple cupcake liners onto the ribbon, but make sure to tie it in a knot at the end first; it is helpful to tie one of the blue beads to the knot to make it larger. After you have strung some cupcake liners onto the ribbon add a bead. String some more cupcake liners and another bead onto the ribbon, and continue in this fashion until your garland is complete. This inexpensive homemade wedding decoration is an easy and quick wedding craft.
You can make an adorable blue topiary decoration for your wedding. For this inexpensive, homemade wedding decoration you will need coffee filters, blue watercolor paint, a stick that is 12 inches long, two small foam balls, a tin can, some blue pebbles, a hot glue gun, hot glue sticks, water, and a paintbrush.
Start this homemade decoration by painting all of your coffee filters blue. This can be done easily by running all of the coffee filters underwater and adding a few drops of paint to them; the paint will swirl and expand because of the water. Allow the blue coffee filters to dry while you are assembling the rest of the decoration.
Now place a foam ball inside the tin can, and poke the stick into the middle of the ball. Place the other ball on top of the stick and push it through to secure it in place. Fill the can the rest of the way with the blue pebbles to secure the tree in place.
Find the center of the coffee filters and pinch it to gather it; next glue the pinched section of the coffee filter to the ball. Continue adding coffee filters until the entire ball is covered, and when the glue has dried your inexpensive, homemade wedding decoration is ready.
Making blue wedding decorations is more fun and personal when they are homemade, and you can do this without spending a ton of cash. These inexpensive decoration ideas are a great way to emphasize the color blue in your wedding while adding a custom touch.
