Pearl and Burlap Heart.

This post will be short and sweet. I want the cake table to be not only a focal point of the reception but more than just a ‘cake’ table.’

Here’s a flat canvas I covered in burlap with hot glue and then hot glued pearls in the shape of a heart right in the center.


Super quick and easy, you could do initials or the word LOVE. Anything you wanted really. I think it’s sweet touch.

Cake Stand/Box.

Remember where I found the hat box turned favor box? I also found a cheese box at the same place. It was still in good condition but needed a wedding makeover.I forgot to take a picture of my cheese box before the makeover so the picture below is from an internet search. My box was dirty and had some ugly cloth on the top of it.

After I washed the entire box, I soaked a few tea bags in some hot water and then washed the cheese box in the tea to help restore some of the color in the wood.  Nathan and I took the lid apart, removed the ugly material and then added burlap and lace. I used a staple gun to staple the burlap and lace to the sides of the lid and had Nathan place the outer ring back onto the lid.

Here’s what our gorgeous cake box looks like now.

Now picture a 4 tier wedding cake sitting on top. Gorgeous!!!

A Forever Craft.

I’ve made another craft for the guest table or maybe the cake table I haven’t decided yet. I have this idea of not only doing a shadow box of smaller wedding things but of decorating our bedroom with wedding items.  I think this is a cute ‘wedding decorations’ that will turn into a nice cute bedroom d├ęcor later.

I found all the wooden letters at Hobby Lobby and Michaels. I used Coffee Bean brown for the large letters and White for the small letters.  Then I used just a tiny bit of hot glue on the back of the small letters and glued them onto the larger one. Hang them on a wall or attach a smaller piece of wood so they can prop on a night stand. I might just make one of these for each of the kids as well in different colors for their rooms.  It’s cute, quick and simple. I like it.
