The holidays have completely bogged me down lately so I apologize for the non-blogging of late. I need to borrow some of Santa's elves so they can write these wonderful blogs that we share with all of you!

Here is another really cute idea for a wedding or event: Hot Chocolate Wedding or Event Favors! You could also do a hot chocolate bar if you love it so much! As far as my rating goes it is easy for sure, The cost for 10 of the favors was about $13.97. It took me about 2 to 3 hours including the purchasing of materials for the favors.

What you will need:..............If you are interested in the instructions and materials list for this project go to http://everyeventelegant.blogspot.com and you will get free access to eco-friendly products, projects, and more!

 This week we are showing you how to make Clothes Pin Place Card holders. These will look great with a Country Chic wedding theme. The best part is they can then be used as favor photo holders for your guests to take home. Let's start with our rating of this project.

Skill Level: Easy

Time: This project is a little time consuming. It takes approximately 6 to 7 hours however you will obviously be working on more than one clothes pin at a time where we only tackled one.

Cost: $9.22 The clothes pin was $1.99 and we had a 20% off our entire purchase coupon. If you were to purchase 100 of these jumbo clothes pins at Joann's it would cost you $159.20 before tax. Obviously you could do the same idea with regular clothes pins and it may or may not be less. This also does not include the two brown/ yellow acrylic paints, paint brushes, or the paint palette as we already had those in our supplies.

Here are the instructions so you can make your own place card holders........

This week we are featuring a DIY Boutonniere made out of rick rack ribbon.

They are sooo cute but I will say you will need to set aside some time for these. Here is our rating:

Skill Level- I would definitely say Advanced. This project requires basic sewing skills which isn't a problem for most but it takes patience. I suggest making a few practice flowers till you get the hang of it and use those for your first shot at the boutonniere. If your first few flowers turn out bad don't worry, mine did too. Actually I spent about two hours the first time I tried this project just learning to make the flowers. It may not take you that long but I would advise allotting some time for this project.

Time- If I add all of the time together for me to make just two boutonnieres it was about 6 to 7 hours total. That includes one hour of shopping for materials, 2 hours of learning how to make the flowers, and 4 hours of actually making and assembling the boutonnieres. We opted out of making the flower with the fabric but if you play with the direction of the rick rack you can manipulate the shape of the flower to transform its appearance into a whole new flower.

 

Cost- $13.78 was all I spent on this project so it was inexpensive.

 

 This project is a cute, creative, personal, and inexpensive way to put your style into your special day!

DIY Marbled Table Numbers

We rated this project as follows;

Skill Level: Easy

Time: 2.5 to 3 hours (This includes a trip for supplies and the actual time needed to complete the project). Note: This does not include the time you will need to press the tags in between heavy books to flatten them and dry them.

Cost. $ Inexpensive ($4.32)

We tried them this evening and I will say they were a little messy so I would suggest wearing clothes that you don't mind getting stained. We tried a few different techniques as far as the way we put the coloring on the shaving cream which resulted in different patterns on the tags. First let's start by explaining the materials you will need........
