DIY: Wednesday

Its that time again. Ill be featuring DIY weddings ideas, inspiration, projects and more every wednesday so stay tuned for more ways to make your wedding cute easy and more affordable. 
With spring in tow and warm weather hitting my city I thought id lighten up the DIY Wednesday with a spring inspired project. Brought to you by oncewed this project is simple and oh so adorable! Use it at your ceremony to drape the ceiling with color, over your dessert or food tables, in the trees, down the aisle, in a reception tent, or draped down doorways. 
Leave Martha's pre-packaged idea on the shelf this time and try this out, or at least get your bridal party to do it for you.

Fabric Flower Garland 

Supplies: Scissors, needle and thread, fabric, and a pencil.

Step 1: 
Fold your fabric and use the spool of thread to trace a circle. 
Then cut the circles out.
Step 2: 
Take one circle and fold it in half.
Step 3: 
Take the half circle and fold it in half again.
Step 4: 
Then take your circle and stitch through the bottom. 
Continue this step, adding at least 6 circles on top of the first.

Step 5: 
Once you have sewn all 6 circles, 
connect the petals together by stitching through each one
 at the corners and then tying off the tread with a double knot.
Step 6:
 Next, cut 3 yards of thread and add on the flowers one by one.

Now your done. Enjoy your handiwork! Get Creative!
