But this post isn't about our minor snow fall. It's about my mommy who's been crafting up a storm for the wedding. She's been working on decor and also has a bridesmaid's gift she's in charge of.
|My beautiful mommy, cancer has taken her hair but not her beauty. She is a strong lovely lady and an inspiration to my sisters and I always. We love you mommy!|
She and I tried again and again to determine what we wanted to do for the wedding at Christmas. Although I absolutely adore Pinterest it has made me crazy indecisive regarding wedding decor. I honestly don't know where to start but when my mom caught a glimpse of these beauties, she was determined to make something similar.
The craft store was our first stop for Styrofoam balls and plastic pearls. Then she got to work:
|We're thinking we're going to look online for bulk plastic pearls next to save $$, any ideas as to where to look?|
|Tacky glue proved to work well though it meant it didn't hold quickly. We considered hot glue but we're afraid of it melting the Styrofoam|
|just the beginning|
She recently finished one and sent me a picture but it was basically a flash of white coming from her phone. Still she's super excited so therefore I am too. I know she's doing a marvelous job.
- Think about everything you want to include in your wedding and come up with a theme...this isn't easy and believe me I still don't have mine totally figured out.
-Let your mom join in on the fun!
-My mom balanced our pearl foam ball on a tall standing cup and it worked great!
-Do sections of a time so the glue can properly dry and you don't have any coming off.
-Have some fun with it! Don't like pearls? Pick up some sparkly jewels or cover in fabric or ribbons...pinterest has ideas galore!
Coming soon: What are Kevin and I going to make out of this? We're taking guesses...
