Bouquet Wrap

It’s that time of year when couples in love are saying, “I do,” which means it’s time for soon-to-be-brides to think about special ways to show their bridesmaids some love. Instead of trying to find the same dress for your bridesmaids, this chic wrap for flowers is a unique touch that doesn’t isolate different body shapes. We’ve partnered up with our friends at Brit + Co to bring you this adorable project that you can make for your gal pals.


Table Vases

The possibilities are endless with the versatility of cotton rope! For this project we wanted to play off the durability of the material by using copper tubing that can be found at most hardware stores. These vases can act as the perfect centerpieces for your guest’s tables and perfect for each couple take one home at the end of the night. Still have some left over? Donate them to a local hospital or nursing home.


Place Mat

Cotton canvas is actually a very versatile material because it can’t unravel after cutting, is durable, and is washable for reuse. You can use the golden yellow to brighten up your tables as an alternative to traditional tablecloths. With reasonable pricing per yard, you will have enough canvas to make place mats for every guest at your wedding! Don’t be afraid to put those bridesmaids to work and have them help you out.


Napkin Rings

These adorable napkin rings are sure to "wow" your guests. This DIY is easier than ever, and the rope material gives a rich, rustic touch to your decor. Choose colors that coordinate with your theme and have your guests be in awe when they find out it wasn’t store bought.
