This wedding is indeed the wedding held together by hot-glue. I have at least one burn on my fingers each day. Speaking of, does the smell of hot-glue make anyone else as happy as it does me? When I smell it, it makes me think of crafting and making something fun.
On Tuesday night, Michael was working late on the computer in the living room, and I was clearing my dining room table of the dozens of glass jars that will be used in the wedding on Saturday. I had bought some yellow and grey chocolates that day as an impulse buy at Party City, and the idea came to me that I have several small, squatty Ball jars that could go on each table and house the candies.
But how to dress it up???
Well, I did what I always do. I looked around at the scraps of crap that I had lying around and came up with this.
I LOVE them! Like really, I even bragged about them to my friends when I had finished them. And they were super quick to make.
So here's what I did. I took a yellow, silk flower, and I pulled it apart and hot-glued a piece (each piece had 3 petals) to the top of each jar.
I had this silver, silky, thick, rayon type of fabric that was a wine bottle bag, so I cut it into strips.
Then I twisted up the silver fabric into a rosette, hot-glued it to the flower - bada bing bada boom!! I love simple, easy, and beautiful! My favorites. :)
By the way, if you missed it, I was over at Creative Carmella's yesterday with other wedding crafts. Go see!!!
