Paper Inspiration

222548_4900959207025_457425247_nFor all you DIY brides, paper can be a wonderful, and affordable, material that can add a lot of of texture and dimension to your decor. Here’s a pic of a garland that I recently made from recycled Crate & Barrel packaging material, coffee filters, book pages and extra paper from Paper Source.

This was really simple to make, I simply measured out the length of twine I needed (I wanted it to frame the window) and then tied a knot on one end and fed on the materials, after piercing a whole in the center of them with a wooden skewer. The order I used was paper, followed by 3-4 brown coffee filters, some packaging material, more coffee filters and then paper, finishing it off with another knot. Then I measured an inch or two and repeated the process.

Here are some other paper creations that I’m dying to try.



Garden Party

I’m really loving these easy, DIY centerpieces that incorporate veggies and fresh herbs. These would be perfect for a wedding or even an Easter dinner table.
