Neon, Pearlized + Glitter Pumpkins: Happy Fall!
Posted by Kate. Filed under Do It Yourself

Having a wedding in the fall doesn’t mean that you are stuck with a palette the colors of changing leaves. We love how our DIY expert, Victoria Hudgins, incorporated pinks, pearl, and oh-so-trendy neon into this autumn table number project.  With a bit of glitter, ribbon, and paint you can turn pumpkins into a statement piece! Head over here for the DIY….

DIY Wednesday: Gussied Up Taper Candle Display
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By: Victoria Hudgins

The simplest way to warm up a chilly fall wedding is with candles. Their warmth and glow instantly make a room more inviting. You can purchase plain candles at many big box stores, and easily transform them into statement pieces with paint and glitter. A grouping of five to ten candles makes a lovely centerpiece for a table.

For a custom look, use a few coordinating colors and designs. Thrift silver plated and glass candlestands (you can easily find them for under $1 a piece) and create a gorgeous display by layering paint texture and candle height. Here are tips for three different techniques that look perfect together!
Preparation: Prior to using any of these painting techniques, be sure to rub a thick coat of rubbing alcohol all over your candle tapers. This will take the top layer of wax off and allow for the paint to stick to the candle well. Style no. 1: Glitter Band Candles. To make these pretty candle bands, paint a line (or a pair of lines) around the candle 1/3 length from one end. Before the paint dries tap out a line of glitter covering the paint line. Let dry. They look a bit like wedding rings around the candles and are super pretty under the flickering candle light.
Style no. 2:  Polka-dot Tapers. Using a small circular felt brush (available at most craft stores), dab a circle of paint first onto paper and then onto the candle in a random configuration. These are sure to give off a bright and festive feeling.Style no. 3: Water Painted Candles. The finished product has a subtle texture and color through the use of paint and water. Apply paint strips liberally along your candle and wet with water. Using your fingertips (plastic gloves will keep them paint-free), blend the paints together until the texture and color is to your liking. These candles will add a bit of neutrality to the display while also adding texture and interest.
Use one of these techniques or all three. I love how they look all mixed in together, but a large display with just one paint design would be beautiful as well!
