Share the joy of your engagement and help out-of-town guests plan in advance with these darling bunting announcements! They are sure to make family and friends excited to see what other clever things you have in store for your big day!
Supplies: cardstock, envelopes, scissors, twine, gluestick
If you're familiar with computer illustrating software, this project will be a breeze. You'll simply want to create a bunting shape and customize the text. If you aren't too handy with a computer you can cut bunting shapes out of cardstock and hand letter your information.
Carefully cut out each bunting shape and fold in half.
Using your gluestick, adhere each bunting piece around your length of twine.
Once your bunting is made, carefully insert it into a colored envelope. To take the customization a little farther you can add envelope liners made out of vintage wallpaper.

We can't think of a prettier addition to a springtime wedding than a robust, vibrant floral crown of peonies, ranunculus, and berries! Here's the complete how-to.
You will need: Peonies, Ranunculus, Feverfew, Seeded Eucalyptus, Blackberries, Scissors, Floral Tape, Fine Gauge Floral Wire (cut into 5 inch lengths), Floral Cloth Wire (2 pieces)
How to Make the Hoop:
Step One. Take the two pieces of floral cloth wire and place one piece midway on top of
the other piece and with the floral tape, tape the two pieces together. You will cover the
entire wire with the floral tape.
Step Two. At this point, you can wrap the wire around your head and if it is too long, cut
off what is needed, but always allow enough length for any adjustments at the end.
Wiring the Flowers
Step One. Cut the fine gauge floral wire into 5 inch lengths.
Step Two. Wire the flowers and wrap the stems in floral tape (helps to seal in the
Note: For the peonies, because of the thickness of the stems, you can simply place the
wire along the side of the stem and then wrap with the floral tape.
Florist Tip: You can also make little bundles by mixing certain flowers together!
Step Three. Once you have wired and tape all the flowers, cut the stems down to about 2
Assembling the Crown
Step One. Start placing the flower bundles on the hoop and taping them in place. At this
point, just go for it and make it as small or as big and fluffy as you want!
Step Two. Once completed, make a small "hook" on the ends of the hoop to hold the floral crown in place on your head. You can also tie ribbons on the ends if you'd like.
And there you have it…perfect for your wedding day, date night, or just because it makes
you happy wearing a floral crown!
