DIY Christmas Wedding Goody Boxes

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

I have designed a range of children’s goody boxes for you to make for the children attending your wedding. They are perfect for keeping children occupied during the wedding  ceremony.  They can be filled with lots of fun items for example colouring materials, small games, jigsaws, puzzle book or even a small disposable camera.

For Christmas I have a cute Angel made especially for little girls and a fab reindeer which is suitable for both girls and boys.

Christmas Robin Cupcake Toppers

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Every year at Christmas I like to add a handmade element to our Christmas decorations.

This year I decided to make some cupcake toppers that we could keep and use each Christmas.

I decided to design some cute festive robins but I wanted to keep them simple so I could make them as and when I had the time.

They are made from a simple circle of brown felt with beaded black eyes a yellow felt beak and three layers of ribbon for its wings. I then wanted a cheery red fabric for his red breast so I plumped for a micro dot red and white fabric and to finish off I added yellow beaded legs.

To emphasise the details I used a black thread and stitched a back stitch around all the robins features and to make him extra neat I added another brown circle of felt to the back of him.

To add him to the cupcake I slotted a cocktail stick between the two brown circles.

Reindeer Christmas Wedding Favour Jars

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

I wanted to design some fun wedding favours which are a little out of the ordinary. I came up with three ideas. Here  is the first idea.

Reindeer Wedding Favour Jars

Reindeer Wedding Favour Jars

They are simple to make and you only need a few basic materials.

Materials Needs:

  • Empty Jam Jar
  • Paint
  • Glitter Paint
  • Plastic Toy Reindeer
  • Ribbon
  • Snowflake Charm
  • Glue
  • Crepe paper
  • Sweets
DIY Reindeer Wedding Favour Jars

DIY Reindeer Wedding Favour Jars

Step 1

Glue the reindeer onto the jar lid. You will need a strong glue for this.

Step 2

Once the glue has dried paint the reindeer and the lid in white paint. You will need a paint that will adhere to plastic and metal, I used acrylic paint. Once the paint is dry paint again but this time with glitter paint. I used a clear paint with irridescent glitter flakes. Leave to dry.

Step 3

Once the reindeer is dry you are ready to decorate the jar. I filled the bottom of the jar with shredded silver crepe paper. I held the folded crepe paper together and then cut strips. Loosely drop the shredded crepe paper into the bottom of the jar and then fill up with sweets of your choice. I used Bon Bons as they look like snowballs but any sweets could be used.

To finish the jar I tied a red ribbon in a bow around the neck of the jar and dangled a small snowflake charm from it.

This idea can be made with a wide variety of childrens plastic toys and of course they can be painted in your colour scheme.
