Comments on: DIY Bean Bag Toss helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank Fri, 27 Mar 2015 17:52:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: Erin Fri, 13 Jul 2012 22:48:36 +0000 I don’t know if you’ve made beanbags before, but I recommend lining them with another fabric or doing double stitching. The first set we made for a friend, I did the stitch only once on a really tight tension, and 2 of the bags broke. The second set, I did 3 different types of stitches, 1 was a regular stitch, the second was two side by side regular stitches and the third was a zig-zag between them, I would be shocked if they broke! I told my friend their beanbags had a lifetime warranty and free repairs for life if needed, but I don’t think they’ll need them. On the other hand, maybe my fam just plays bean bags too rough!! Can’t wait to hear how your guests enjoy the game!

We’re worried that since our wedding is in November in PA, it might snow…fingers crossed it’s nice enough to play some lawn games!

We’re also having lawn games at our wedding! Your beanbag toss looks fab! I’m hoping to make one as well.

Another super budget savvy lawn game we’re making is lawn bowling! We have ten 1L clear plastic bottles (originally water bottles) that on the day of I am going to refill with water, add food coloring (to make them pretty) and put the tops back on. We’ll set them up in a ten pin formation with a soccer ball to knock them over.

It cost us nothing to make as the bottles were in our recycling and we already have the soccer ball :)

Just a thought!
