- Wedding: June 2014 - Italiano's Humble
Well, half of it lol. I gave up, b/c I didn’t have enough branches, and I also only bought one mini can of silver paint, so I quit LOL.
Hobby Lobby had their HIS&HERS brand half off, and ribbon. I am gonna go next Thursday, and raid FFIL’s yard, b/c he has allot of crazy shaped branches out there. These came off a bush in a forgotten corner of our parking lot, LOL!
I know they need to be fuller. I also got a second pack of the crystals, but I think I might exchange them for the stephonotis heads(that you use for invites etc), and glossy black.
FH and I decided with white table cloths, it’d look better if we paint the branches a high gloss black, used red satin ribbon to hang the crystals, and put the white stephanotis on them, and just put them on these square satin place mats I saw last week @ Anna’s linens for $2(and I have a coupon for 25% off-minus clearance-too!)…but, here’s my general design.(please, excuse my floor 🙂 )
ETA-Should I add some smaller ones? they have little ones that you can string also, but they’re more or a flat style, even tho they are 3-D. Oh, I also need to adjust the heights. I cut the sticks diff heights, but I guess being in the jar, they ended up same height. Oh, the red is the glitter spray paint. Which is ok, but it only “glazed” the other branches, and I accidentally doused the 1 branch. But I don’t think it’s worth the cost(and aggravation, b/c its not a guaranteed coverage), hence the idea for the hi-gloss black!
