Ombre Napkins

You can totally do this! We just found stacks of simple white linen napkins and dipped them in little bowls of fabric dye to give them a watercolor effect. To keep with the minimal feel of this week’s board we laid out white paper on our table and chose flowers with hints of pink and white in them.

Check out the comment section to learn more about the dyes and technique Jessica used to get the ombre effect!

Star Bow Tie DIY

Star Tie

 

Pretty rad tie, right? But if you don’t have the $170 to sink, you could make your own! Just make a little stencil (we made ours from mylar) and paint your own stars on to a regular black bow tie.

DIY Watercolor Wedding Invitations

Annaemilia 11

We were so inspired by this little letter from one of our favorite illustrators, Anna Emilia, created that we thought; “hey! that would make an adorable handmade wedding invite!”  You could totally do it! (just paint more paper than you think you’ll need and only use your favorites.)

Stay tuned tomorrow for a beautiful table-scape just in time for Spring!

Wool Handwarmer DIY

MV Hand Warmer DIY

Here’s a simple, sweet way to help keep your guests toasty at an outdoor affair…and lets face it, warm hands, warmer heart. Here we’ve wrapped the rather unsightly hand warmers in little woolen envelopes. Its so easy to do! We bought our wool from this etsy seller or you could just as easily recycle old sweaters or whatever else you might find. Just lay the hand warmer on the fabric, cut out the front and back pieces leaving a little extra length in the back for the flap, stitch around the three sides, cut a slit in the flap and add a button. easy peasy.
