When someone mentions their wedding to me a year or even two weeks in advance, my mind dances with delight about all the possibilities for their special day and the joy I will experience creating these things for them. But because I always wait until the very last minute to get started, what seemed relaxing and fun turns quickly into what looks like an episode of Craft Wars.
Here is one of my favorite wedding crafts that is versatile enough to be carried as a wedding bouquet, used as table favors or jauntily tied to chair backs as place holders for your guests. And the best part of all is that they are oh-so-quick to make and super inexpensive! For even more fabulous crafting ideas like this one, check out Glitterville!
Hold a piece of 8-1/2-inch card stock in your hands horizontally. Curl the lower right hand corner toward the center of the page.
Continue curling and readjusting until you have made a cone that you like, and hot glue the seam to hold it in shape.
Create a textured pattern over the entire surface of the cone with hot glue. Just squeeze the handle and let it go where it wants! Do not touch until you're sure it's completely dry; it takes approximately five minutes .
Brush the cone with white glue.
Sprinkle with glitter; I used iridescent.
For the decorative curls peaking out of the cone, cover a few pieces of stem wire with white floral tape, paint on some stripes and twirl with pliers. Hot glue to the inside edge of cone.
Hot glue a loop of wire to the top of the cone in the back and add a ribbon for hanging.
Drop in a bundle of flowers. For live flowers that require water, line the inside of the cone with a pastry decorating bag cut to fit.
Stripe a kitchen skewer with acrylic paints, glue the "O' Happy Day" medallion to the top and slip it into your flowers. Finish it off by gluing on a banner that announces "Here Comes the Bride!"
