Kelli Hunt created this candle tutorial for us last year, but I couldn’t resist featuring them again since we’re so close to Christmas. The tutorial is based on porcelain candleholders from this winter weddingboard. Enjoy!
-Wine cork or something of similar size
-DAS Air drying modeling clay
Winter Wedding Candleholder Instructions
Step 1: Roll clay out to about an 1/8? thick with the rolling pin.
Step 2: Cut clay with pizza cutter into 3/4? strips, and cut ends to a diagonal.
Step 3: Wrap strips around wine cork, then take the clay off the cork.
Step 4: Place candles in holder to test the correct width. Take out the candles and let the clay air dry overnight (about 10-12 hours).
Step 5: Paint clay to desired color (white for this inspiration board).
Step 6: Place candles in holders and you’re finished!
With the holiday season in full swing, I know so many of us are looking for easy and beautiful ideas to decorate our homes with. Wreaths are especially popular right now, and I love this wreath tutorial sent over by Honey of Thousand Flowers for a holiday or winter wedding. Sarah suggested you can use ferns or any type other type of greenery to create a winter wedding wreath. You could make just one of these to hang on a door, or several to hang in a window. You could even hang several of them with fishing line from a branch to use as a ceremony backdrop for a wedding!
-Ferns, or any other green
-Wreath forms (or stiff wire to make your own)
-Floral wire, clippers
-Break apart the wreath forms into individual rings. (I used a wreath form so that I had a few perfectly circular wire bases for my wreaths. Sometimes it is hard to make your own into a perfect circle.)
-Place the greenery on the ring and beginning at the base of the leaf. Wire it to the ring by wrapping the wire through and around the ring up the leaf. Be careful not to tuck any parts of the leaf under the wire.
-Place the next leaf on and continue wrapping it with wire the same way until you’ve gone all the way around the ring with leaves.
1. Start with loose waves in your hair.
2. Backcomb or tease the hair at the crown of your head.
3. Smooth out the top layer.
4. Twist one side of your hair and ***pin it about 2/3 of the way across your head*** (this is the big trick that will allow you to hide your tracks!)
5. Now twist the other side and tuck it under the first part.
6. Again, pin that piece about 2/3 of the way across your head.
Easy! And so pretty!
