Wedding Banner Trends: DIY Flower Garland

DIY and Crafts Ideas

Wedding Banner Trends Tons of couples are utilizing banners, bunting, and garland in engagement photos, wedding photos, and even as decor at the ceremony and reception. Basically it is everywhere! It works wonderfully over or around gift tables, sign in tables, and highlighting your wedding cake. It can also be used at bridal showers and bachelorette parties as a quick and easy way to create a lot of color and decor at your party site. Basically, the stuff can go everywhere! So, what is it? Banners: This is the big category that so many other things (including bunting) fit into. These are exactly what you think they are. They are signs or flags that hang over entrances, tables, across walls, etc. Bunting: This is a type of banner. These are those hanging triangle flags that are often seen at sporting events, carnivals, and vintage styled weddings. Garland:This a different than a banner in that it won't say anything and won't be draping material or anything like that. Garland, instead, is a string of or wreath of flowers, leaves, or other object-like materials. DIY Flower Garland  A cute trend that is popping up is using paper flower decor and paper flower garland at weddings and bridal showers. Here is a simple step by step tutorial on how to make a paper flower. 1) Gather Materials:

  • Sheets of book paper (or construction, card stock, scrap-booking, or basically any kind of paper)
  • lead pencil
  • paint colors of your choice
  • water cup
  • paint brush
  • scissors
  • hot-glue gun and glue.
2) Draw a swirl on your chosen paper. 3) Cut the swirl out leaving a base for your flower to sit on. 3) With the base at the far end, twist the cut out swirl tightly. 4) Once you have twister the swirl up to the base, place a small dap of glue on the base and then press the twist lightly to the glue and let go slowly allowing the swirl to unfurl. 5) Once you have let the swirl open up to the point that you feel it looks like a flower, press the end and the base together more tightly and apply glue to areas that need help connecting and being secure. 6) If you want your paper to be different colors, before step two paint the sheet of paper. I would recommend watering down the color and lightly saturating the paper so that the paper still twists easily.

Stick to the Fun Parts of DIY Wedding Bunting

DIY Wedding Bunting: Style and Convenience

DIY Wedding Bunting

For your wedding, DIY wedding bunting kits offer a fun way to decorate your space with some personal and stylish flair. DIY wedding bunting offers all of the fun of DIY without the special skill set that only serious crafters come pre-equipped with. Few of us even know what bunting is, let alone how to measure and purchase the proper amount of materials for the job. No, a DIY wedding bunting kit gives us all of the fun parts of crafting (bonding with your bridesmaids over mimosas) and none of the frustrated hours at the craft store. DIY wedding bunting is a fun mini project that will really add a bit of professional style to you wedding - but I do recommend a kit... for your sanity. So where can you situate some DIY wedding bunting in your ceremony or reception space? While it does fit in almost anywhere, there are a few places where DIY wedding bunting really shines. Think about including some over your otherwise bare ceremony arch. DIY bunting is an inexpensive alternative to flowers and adds a colorful (and understated) touch to your photos. The dessert table is another place where DIY wedding bunting works well. It makes the table look like a part of the decor, and it doesn't look weird if that's the only place you feature DIY wedding bunting. It really is that versatile!
