I posted earlier this week about the banner and mantel decorations I made for a wedding shower I threw this past weekend. I didn’t want to cause extreme scrolling wrist pain so I broke it up into two posts. Here is the rest of what I did to make the shower as festive as possible!
If you saw my banner post, you’ll recall that I purchased a pack of coordinating scrapbook paper and based all of my colors/feel on its designs. Elle (the bride) loves the shabby chic look so I decorated accordingly. Besides the mantel banner, I created a cute garland which I strung around as I saw fit. It was VERY fun to make and gave me an excuse to dust off the ole sewing machine!
A One Minute Tutorial:
1) Gather scrapbook paper of your own choosing (or cardstock) and punch many, many circles/shapes/etc. using the punches you have on hand or have purchased for just such an occasion. My punches were 2 and 3 inches in diameter. I did mine during the Bachelorette finale (if you look closely you’ll see tear drops on some of the circles as I listened to Jef’s sweet proposal. #teamjef #ariesfamilywascreepy #iftheyeverbreakupiwillcryfor3daysstraight)
