DIY: How To Create Hanging Bauble Decor
Today's blog post is the best kind of DIY post - super easy, and super effective. You may have seen these gorgeous decor additions in last week's biog post, adorning the trees of Breadsall Priory and finishing off the woodland winter vibes of the inspirational shoot perfectly. They can transform any space - from a woodland wedding to an industrial copper pipe warehouse wedding - and so we asked Mary Ann from Thomasina Brides to take us through the process of making them. As well as being the queen of wedding accessories, she's a dab hand at this decor DIY lark! She was even lovely enough to get some gorgeous photos of the whole process - so no excuses! Add these into your wedding decor plans straight away...
"I bought the iridescent baubles from eBay, £15.99 for 24 including p&p. I used twine to suspend them for a natural but they'd look lovely on ribbon or sparkly embroidery, or if you wanted them to look like floating bubbles you could use nylon thread.
You carefully remove the piece of metal at the top of the bauble, then fill with your choice of embellishment. For a festive feel I used red crystals and little sprigs of fir tree or rosemary. I also used some faux frosted holly berries and leaves in others.
I have seen these filled with all sorts of things though: tiny colourful buttons; pom-poms; sequins; feathers; fake snow, etc. The possibilities are endless... as long as it will fit through the little opening at the top!
Carefully replace the metal fixing by squeezing the little spokes together to fit through the hole. Then suspend with your choice of thread."
It really is that easy, and it really is that beautiful! What will you fill yours with?
