*oh no i meant to post this in DIY 🙁 could someone teach me how to move it over there?
This is my 2 day project that took maybe 20+ hours!! no wonder people charge so much! I honestly didn’t think it would take that long but time went by fast and it was a ton of fun. It was nice spending time to myself. It may not be as nice as the professionally made ones but i think i did a pretty good job.
last night i did me and the base of the groom.
Here’s both of us finished & unpainted
And the final finished product! I dn’t know if i should eave is tie pearl white to match my dress or to paint it blue.
COST BREAK DOWN AFTER TAXES:Stinson 16gauge wire whole roll $3.29 (I don’t think i even used $1 worth for these and i used way more already practicing wire letters)Aluminum foil $0 already had at homeSculpey $3.49 before taxes + 40% off Micheal’s coupon = $2.36 after taxes (Used all of it)Paintbrushes & Acylic Paints from dollarama $3.67 for both (still got lots of paint left over)1 bottle of metallic silver paint and pearl white paint $0 already had it from before but i think it was $1 each from the dollar store.TOTAL: under $10 !! + hours of labour.
$10 vs $100-$300? Totally worth it 🙂
