DIY Stamped Napkins Wedding Linen Tutorial

Image by Carey Sheffield

 

It’s time to get crafty again, this time I am here creating the perfect napkins for your guests.

This tutorial is really simple and can be totally customised to your wedding theme. Go for floral fabric, coloured fabric or for natural linen like mine. Plus you could change up the colours or add glitter to your stamped motif.

Potato stamping is so easy, fun, cost effective and creates fab results.

 

How To

 

You need:

A sharp knife.

A potato.

Napkins or fabric of your choice. I got mine from Dunelm Mill.

Fabric paint.

 

It doesn’t get simpler than this.

Cut your potato in two and carve in your desired design. Try to keep it simple.

Coat your stamp in paint and print onto the napkin. Allow to dry and place onto your tables.

Use fabric paint so that they last longer. Iron your napkins for a polished finish. Let your guests take them home as a keep sake. YAY.

Here are some images of the napkins at the WWW editorial shoot... pretty right? :-)

Happy crafting lovelies XOXO Lou

DIY Dream Catcher Wedding Guest Book Tutorial

Image by Carey Sheffield

 

For the WWW editorial shoot I really wanted to create something a little different for the guest book. The inspiration behind the shoot was nature, woodland and natural materials.

I felt this went hand in hand with a spiritual feel. So catching guests dreams for the married couple I thought would be a lovely sentiment.

Using natural materials I created this rustic dream catcher guest book, which can be used as a lovely keepsake post wedding too :-)

Here’s how to make it…

What You Need

 

Bendy branches/stems. I used Hazel foraged from the garden but you can try finding Willow too

Twine/string

Florist wire

Foraged dried seeds & blooms to decorate

Luggage tags or alternative for the notes

 

DIY Dream Catcher Wedding Guest Book Tutorial

 

Begin by bending your branch into shape.

I made 2 dream catchers one smaller than the other for a complimentary look. For a natural feel don’t worry about the shape being perfect.

Secure with florist wire.

Then cover with twine.

Next you need to make your dream catching centre.

Begin by tying your twine to your branch. (more…)

DIY Tutorial. How to Make Botanical Pebble Pressed Flower & Leaf Favour Place Names

DIY Tutorial How To Pebble Stone Dried Flower Leaf Botanical Favours Place Names

Image by Carey Sheffield

 

To recreate the table look from the WWW Photoshoot – Ethereal Woodland Wedding Ideas yourself, I am here to share with you how I created the botanical pebble favour place names today.

A super simple technique, which will also be fun to make in a large batch. Whether you want to use them as décor, favours or place names they will work really well on your wedding tables.

I chose a muted coloured stone and picked the cow parsley and leaves from the garden, so it can be really cost effective too.

 

What You Need

 

Flower Press

Leaves/Flowers

Pebbles/Stones

PVA Glue

Collect your leaves and flowers and place into the flower press. Follow the instructions included.

If you haven’t got a flower press try using heavy books with paper either side of the flowers.

Leave them for a couple of weeks, mine were only pressed for a couple of days. And they still turned out great :-)
