DIY Wednesday: Floating Heart Table Numbers
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By : Brittni Mehlhoff

Show your guests that love is in the air with this thrifty and easy-to-recreate table number concept.  Not to mention, the pop of color from the pomegranates will add a dose of fresh-picked vibrance.

You will need patterned paper scraps • foam core • bamboo skewers • pomegranates • a paint pen • scissors • craft glue

Step One • Fold a thick piece of paper in half and draw one side of a heart at the fold. Cut the folded piece of paper, tracing the line you made. Unfold. Now, you have your stencil.

Step Two • Using your stencil, trace a heart onto a piece of foam core and cut out the heart shape from the foam core sheet.

Step Three • Next, use your heart stencil to trace and cut out two hearts from the decorative paper.

Step Four • Glue your decorative paper hearts to the front and back of your heart-shaped foam core piece.

Step Five • Then, using a paint pen, draw the corresponding table number onto the front of the heart. Puncture the foam core with a bamboo skewer to create a long ‘lollipop’ of sorts.

Step Six • Stick the other end of the bamboo skewer into a pomegranate and you have an affordable table number concept that will get guests talking!

DIY Wednesday: Folded Felt Décor
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By: Victoria Hudgins

Felt is a very inexpensive material that you can use to create warm, textured décor pieces. It’s available in bright colors and can be molded into any shape you like. This heart wreath and set of hanging pomanders are two fun examples!  Here’s the scoop on the DIY technique:

Step One. Cut out equal circles in the colors of your choice. The easiest way to do this is to trace a small bowl with a pencil and cut as you go.  Mixing colors in this type of project can produce a beautiful effect- but be sure to check your combination in small doses before cutting hundreds of circles out!

Step Two. Cut two small slits in the middle of each circle about 1/2 inch apart. These cuts allow you to fold and mold the felt into form.

Step Three. For the heart wreath, use a thin wire to thread the felt together, then you can mold it into shape.  Fold the felt pieces in half, string the wire through the two holes and squish together for a pretty (floral looking) display.

Step Four. To form the pomanders, thread string thru the holes of the half folded felt pieces and pull by the two ends tightly together. This will fluff it into shape. Tie securely and cut one side of the excess string off; hang with the other.

Hang in trees, lining a wall or anywhere that you need a major dose of design for a very affordable price.
