Hey Bees! I’m on a crazy quest on making my own bridal sash. I’m on a tight budget, so I refuse to spend $300 on a sash. I’ve seen some amazingly pretty ones on Etsy, but I’m convinced I can make something on my own. I’ve been scouring eBay, Shinetrim, what have you…looking for ideas on how to put something pretty together. And no, I don’t know how to sew, but for some reason, I’m convinced that this will be a fun DIY project. So, with that being said, please show me your own DIY bridal sash marvels! I’m looking for a self-esteem boost!

@June14Bride: I want to do the same thing myself – I cant justify 300 either! I got some gem applicas at a trimming store I havent altered them yet/put it together but I will post pictures soon to show you what I am thinking.
Have you thought anymore into what you will be using/how you will be doing yours?

One of my sisters is getting married next year. We’ve been making fabric bouquets and sashes for her and the bridesmaids. You can pretty much make a sash for $50 or less depending on how elaborate you want it to be. Most of them are just fancy rhinestone appliques attached to fabric or ribbon sashes. I made this one for $26.00. I got the materials from Her Lovely Supplies on Etsy. It has an iron on backing so it took no time to make. Still trying to decide if it will be simple like this or make one with the beading going all the way around the waist.

My best friend made mine. It cost about $40 and I loved it.
I bought the sparkly piece from etsy and she put it on some ivory ribbon.
