:::Do It Yo'Self Craziness:::

So far, not so good.

So I tried the hanging letters.

I bought hydrangeas and moss to see which one I wanted to use. Well, the sucky glue doesn't stick faux flowers very well so I had to scrap and use moss instead. This is the result of that....

Next, after quickly getting frustrated with that, I tried DIY name flip-flops for my maids...Very very bad idea.

I just ended up with glue all over the place and a headache. That middle crystal is supposed to be a pink embellishment but it looks more like a cheap piece of crap. **SIGH**  That's why I buy everything....

**UPDATE!!** I've been a little bit more successful with my DIYs lately!
With the help of TheChicBride, I DIYd a pomander for my flower girls! I've only made one but I'm SUPER happy with how it turned out!

Thanks to JennyPaul's article, I DIYd bouts for my ringbearers, my baby, and 2 ushers.

Thanks to the lady at Michael's, I DIYd my BMs and MOHs earrings and bracelets!

It's getting so exciting! Next step, bling out my shoes (if I ever buy them!)

**UPDATE!!** More DIY fun!

Thanks to Jaryce21 (HI CBFF!!), I did some NICE moss letters (not like my fail above). They are 18" wooden letters. They look gawgus!

Amazing DIYs

I like the moss! Im doing something similar too. Good to know faux flowers wont stick :(

 I have so many of those DIY crazy stories too.  Yours are coming together!

I'm soooo with you on this....lol! I HATE freakin' DIYs....I've had the worst luck with them so far. The only thing I have successfully DIY'd (and this really isn't even a DIY per say....lol) was the raffia fans that I decorated for the shower that my aunt is throwing for me. :) I prefer to purchase too girl! :)
