Handmade Crafty Wedding Gifts...

We are off to a Wedding at the end of the month, and I am pretty excited. Love a good Wedding! A chance to get dolled up. Hair, make up, know all the girly stuff. It's also wonderful to be invited to share in something that is so magical in someone else's life, to feel the love and happiness that they share.  But sometimes it's rather hard to find the perfect gift to suit the couple. These days a lot of couples don't want a gift so much, as they would like a little bit of cash instead. To either help with a honeymoon, a new house, or even just to help pay for some of the wedding. And hey!, that's cool with me (I believe I did that myself!). Even so, I still like to give a little personal gift to go along with a cash pressie.

Being a lover of handmade, crafty items (check out my DIY Envelopes), I buy local whenever I can. I've been searching the internet this last week and have put together below a list of some beautiful, in-expensive gifts that you could give to a couple to help them celebrate such a big event in their lives. I think it just adds that little personal touch to a 'cash' gift.

  1. Fantastic ideas

  2. What an awesome selection of ideas Bec! I especially love the chopping board and cake forks (and are those two on the tea towel doing a fist bump? how cool!) I'm like you and always like to have a little something extra to go with the cash, even if it is an amazing card. We are so lucky to have such talented craftsmen and women. If you are ever in Perth you must time your visit in with Perth Upmarket - amazing local handmade goods like these. Markets are a dangerous place for me and my wallet!

    1. Thanks Tash! I think you're right on the fist bump lol! Perth is one place I would love to get to one day, you know I love a good market. xx

  3. Love these ideas!! I've got a very special wedding to go to in the new year & had no ideas for gifts, but these are gorgeous!! x

    1. So glad you like them, hope you keep them in mind for next year. x

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).

Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
