Hello Bees! I’m already married, but my husband’s brother is getting married later this year, and I’m helping throw the bridal shower for his soon to be wife. I just wanted to share a few crafts I’ve been working on.
The invitations to both the shower and the bach. party. (so sad to blur out the details!)
Mason jars with chalkboard labels for drinks.
drop cloth table runners with paint. (I made 4 with various patterns, but the same colors)
beer and wine bottle vases and the bunting banner I made with canvas drop cloth also.

Lovely! Did you just buy a bolt of cotton for the runner? What kind of paint did you use to coat the bottles?

The runners are actually a drop cloth I bought at Lowe’s and then trimmed to size and hemmed. I used samples of latex wall paint to make the stripes.
For the bottles I used spray paint, Valspar brand from Lowe’s. I’ve used Rustoleum for other projects and I like it better, but Valspar has better colors. I tried to use regular paint but it was really runny and weird. Spray paint is the way to go for bottles.
( I sound like a Lowe’s commerical! I swear I’m not associated with them, it was just the closest home improvement store)
