helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

Who wants to see my latest wedding craft?!

I’ll start by showing you some inspiration pictures (and I’m kicking myself for not saving where they came from but my guesses are etsy, 100 layer cake, and/or once wed)

Before we get to the craft, I’ll start by telling you I bought the BEST book ever!

(and did you notice how many “ear marks” I have? haha)

Well if you turn to one of those marked pages you will find this pretty DIY:

I gathered my supplies (and of course most of them were on sale),

sketched out my drawings,

painted on my first layer of color,

then put together all the accessories for little Taylor and little Derek.

and TA DA!

I love that they show our personality, match what we will be wearing AND can be an ornament on our Christmas tree every year!

I can’t wait for my DIY topper to sit on our cake!

What do you think, should I add faces or keep them blank? I have gone back and forth on the decision.

    Add simple faces for sure!!! Why go faceless when you've already got so many awesome details?!
