Spiral Owls Wedding Inspiration

Weddings today have become huge one-uppers. One couple had a totally vegan buffet, this couple used all fresh grown, organic flowers, this couple used sustainable made clothing. This couple made each and every single craft by themselves. Geez! How much money do those couples make?
I'm putting these up for the brides like me. The Crafty Chicks, The Homesteading types. The DIY girl, those Meat-eating Hippyies. The couples who have been together forever, kids and all, and just now decided to get married.
I love the idea of making your own flowers for a wedding, but the sheer scale of these ones is really gorgeous!

love the owl jewelry in the hair, but a vintage brooch would be just as nice, and could substitute for that ‘something old’

Arches! Handmade arches - gorgeous. I think I’m going to go look for some willow branches right now!

More Ideas that use logs! Including photo instructions for a cake stand!

More canning jar ideas!

Vintage canning jars. How simple - really. Ask around your family, ask on freecycle or craigslist. Check your local thrift stores - let them know you will buy lots if they’ll call you and then give them your card. Or buy a box or two.

What really struck me about this photo is #1 - those napkins. I have that EXACT SAME fabric. And it’s a vintage sheet from our local Goodwill. Seriously. Plus how cheap is this project? Find a friend or family member, or shoot ask on freecycle or craigslist if someone will cut you some 2 inch thick logs. Wood burners (I already have one) are really cheap and you can do projects with them forever. Plus cheap dried moss. The cost of the projects probably ends up being under a dollar each. (if you don’t count your labor - which I don’t unless it’s very meticulous)

dollar store tiny little terra cotta pots, mixed with tiny little flowers made of all those gazillions of buttons your Grandma has in her sewing room. Plus a tiny amount of dried moss. This is a table decorating project that is easy to do, really DOES have cheap contents, and is super cute too!

I love the simplicity of this table. The tiny little buntings, easily made with some yarn and scraps of fabric. Also the give-away bags in the background with their scrappy ‘button’ decorations. The simple easy on the eyes colors. The handmade food, you can TELL it’s handmade, but it’s got a beauty of it’s own and it looks delicious.
