Saturday Craftacular

Saturday, August 20, 2011


I spent all day gathering, painting, and crafting finishing touches for the wedding. We are keeping the decorations to a minimum - Dan and I are pretty simple when it comes to our taste. I did want to have something "special" for the head table. I created a bunting to drape across the front, and today, after finding some great frames at the dollar store (which were jazzed up with some crackle medium, white paint, and sand paper), I decided to make "portraits" of Dan and I.

I took a profile picture each of us, turned it black and white, and upped the contrast. I printed it on some heavy cardstock, carefully cut around the lines of our profiles, and used the negative as a stencil. I stencilled on plain old muslin with some black acrylic paint. I'm really happy with how these turned out.

I grabbed a great old tin wash-basin from an antique store to put our wedding programs and bird-seed confetti bags in, as well as some old lace-trimmed linens.

I'm a little worried about what I will craft when this wedding is all over...
