They look fantastic!!!!!! They look very professional 🙂

 

We’re not having a traditional pillow, but rather a little mini pirate chest ring box. I also looked at these online and they were soooo expenisve so I made it. Took me a year of checking various craft stores before i found the perfect box, ($2.99 at michaels) and I owned the rest! So bam! Yay crafting!

Hooray for DIY! I made my own too, but not completely from scratch like you! Yours look amazing, by the way!

Mine is a wooden box from Hobby Lobby that I applied approximately 94847362648485 coats of glitter paint to, then added a film strip photo with a quote (related to our film theme) and a coat of Modpodge.

This was my pillows, I had fallen in love with an expensive but gorgeous pillow on etsy with beading but couldn’t justify either the cost or time investment. The pillow was just something I wasn’t willing to spend much on since people see it for the minute it goes down the aisle and that’s it. I think I spent about $7 on the materials including the brooch from eBay. Hopefully this comes out normal sized, I haven’t tried pictures on the iPad before.

@Happy_luv: your pillows are very pretty.  Looks almost exactly like the Etsy sellers. i didn’t DIY mine but brought it from Hobby Lobby in ivory for like $12.5.  I too refused to spend a ton on a prop.

@Happy_luv:  Ha! You’re a genius. They’re an exact match. Your SO must be grateful that you did it yourself rather than wasting money buying it from someone else.

@Happy_luv:  Ha! That’s so funny. make sure you get the ear wire thing and the glasses too or people may not catch on. Oh, and make sure the ringbearer is competent i.e. won’t start bawling during his walk up the aisle.
