The cost to have a wedding is super expensive. If you or someone you know has a creative side why not enlist them to make some of the wedding decor for you? I’ve done this for family and friends on occasion. And it’s a great wedding gift for the new couple.
Walnut Hollow has a variety of products that are great for weddings and even parties. One of my favorite products are their small open stars. They are perfect for just about any occasion. The bride usually likes to gift her bridesmaids with something special. I decided to use the stars to show you how to make personalized gifts for each lady in the bridal party.
Here are the supplies that you will need:
- Walnut Hollow Open Star, Small
- White craft paint
- Foam brush
- Photos of the bridesmaids
- Flowers (fresh or artificial)
Start off by painting both sides of your wooden stars.Sit them aside and allow to dry for a few hours.
Next, print off the photos that you would like to use. I used 5 x 7 photos because they coordinated well with the size of the stars.
Now it’s time to use your paper trimmer to cut some card stock or designer paper. I used some wood grain card stock for this project. Cut the card stock just a bit bigger to use as a border for the photo. Use adhesive to add the photo to the wood grain paper.
Add your photo to the center of your painted star using a clothespin. I also added a flower to the corner of the photo.
Now you can just arrange each star however you’d like. They are great to use as centerpieces too. Just add pretty flowers to the center of the stars. Also, each lady can also take one home as a gift after the shower.
