Wedding Picture Frame Craft

So as I was sitting around one day thinking of how I could make my Wedding more unique and special I thought about the tables and what I was going to put on them. I decided I wanted a picture of me and the Groom to be on  the card and gift table. I didn't want just any frame I wanted something fun and fresh something with a little more meaning so as a craftier I thought well I will just make a frame using the wedding colors and something with bling.

First I started with a blank wood frame from Michael's craft store.
Next I got Red paint and as I was walking to the register I found these cute bling bling ring shaped stick ons that were red and blue ( my wedding colors) how lucky was that!
I went home painted the frame just as I would paint a wall or a picture its easy anyone can do it next I let it dry then I stuck on the rings where I wanted to have them and adhered them to the frame with a glue gun even though they are sticky I wanted them to stay put. Then I thought it needs a little something extra so I found some pretty blue lace I had in my craft box and attached it to the bottom of the frame with a glue gun.

Now the best thing about this project is you can do whatever you want, it's a blank canvas you just have to have a vision or if your like me here just go with the flow, start simple and add things as you go. If you don't have a bunch of craft items around your house like me then you might want to grab everything you want to use at the store and lay it on the frame to imagine what it looks like before you get home that way if you want more  or even want less on the frame you get what you need.

Craft Supplies you will need:
Wood Frame
Paint Brushes/Sponge

BRIDE 2011- Will You Be My BridesMaid? Maid of Honor?

I'm Back! Sorry it's been so long I have been extremely busy I am getting Married in 100 days yes I said it the 100 day count down is on. So I have been planning , creating and getting ready for that on top of work, Summer Vacations, kids and adopting a new puppy.  I have a lot to catch this blog up on and will try to start now.

One of the first things I did was try to set something up for who I wanted to be in my Wedding Party since those are the girls I want by my side helping me plan I wanted them to be around from the beginning. Well the very first thing I did was find a dress and my oh my that was quite a day I'll put that in its very own post later.

Will you Be My Bridesmaid? That is the question but how do you ask it. I wasn't sure but I knew who I wanted so at least I had one step down. I looked up the proper etiquette and knew right then I wanted to take these girls out for fun and make this special for them too.
After ideas and ideas went though my head I picked on one, I got a hotel room decorated it in my Wedding colors made them gifts and had dinner and drinks in our room while music played and we goofed around then when everyone was eating I gave them their handmade gifts and proposed my question for them.

The gift was a box shaped purse made of wood that I painted and decorated in my wedding colors then inside you open it and it had a picture of me and my Bridesmaid/Maid of Honor then a poem asking them if they would be my Bridesmaid/MOH and I included a after dinner mint and a fun craft Diamond ring. I also had a candy bar with Cake Pops I made myself to make it more fun and for some late night snacks.
Then after we went out to a Country Bar and Danced and had some fun it was a night to remember for sure.
 This picture is the gifts I made for them and my Wedding Shoes.

Some of the drinks for the night.

Another Gift for the Ladies I wanted to decorate them all but things got busy so were gong to do them together on a later date.

I Love to have fun so what better way then Candy Ring Pops to Celebrate along with the ladies Craft Rings I got them.

Here's a look at one of the Cake Pops I made.
