When Mr. Goodlaff and I got engaged, for weeks I did nothing but research and plan and get us organized to tackle the monumental task of planning a wedding. Post engagement, I was cruising Project Wedding and found this tutorial on how to make hair flowers. Inspiration! To the craft store I went, sans list of needed supplies, came home with organza instead of chiffon, but made the flowers anyway. Later, I went back to the store, bought chiffon and made them with the materials suggested (chiffon is ridiculously hard to cut--I prefer the organza for ease of use). Want to see? Chiffon to the left, organza to the right:
And here's what they should look like:
Did they use a laser to cut the chiffon or something? My scissors must be super-crappy...
Anyway, since the flowers didn't turn out so bad, I've been in search of the next wedding-related craft project.
Enter my wedding shoes: I already have shoes for the wedding, but they need just a little bit of sparkle. I've looked everywhere for shoe clips to give them that extra help, to no avail. I've seen a lot of great options, but nothing that really wows me, so last night I got an idea: I will make them!
Nevermind the fact that I haven't the slightest clue where to start or what I'd need to make them. Nevermind that it will probably cost me more to make them than to buy some. Nevermind that I will probably need to remake them several times before they are perfect. I will conquer! If it hadn't been 10PM I would have gotten in the car, bought out the craft store and stayed up all night making something sparkly for my wedding day feet.
I now present to you, my wedding day shoe clips:
Okay, so they're not done yet, but stay tuned, because the fun is just beginning!
What were you inspired to (or felt you needed to) DIY for your wedding?
