It is a fact that weddings are beautiful events. Plan a wedding for the winter and it becomes not only beautiful, but magical as well. Winter white is sophisticated and elegant and we want to make sure you are all prepared for the big day. Today we have a fun DIY project to add a whimsical touch to your winter wedding. Even though all eyes are on the bride, you still need to make sure the details add to the overall magical effect. This project is pretty straightforward and leaves a lot of room for creativity.
For this project you will need:
- a branch
- white paint and foam paint brush
- hot glue gun (warm temp)
- a pot or bucket
- floral foam
- white fabric
- snowflakes or something similar to hang
The first step is to find a perfect branch and to paint it white. By painting it white, it has a more magical feel. We found our branch outside in the yard and painted it with some white paint we had leftover from a previous project. Any kind of white paint will do, and spray paint may be faster.
Once the paint dries, you will use hot glue to secure the floral foam into the bucket. Insert the branch into the foam. Take the branch out, insert a dab of glue, then reinsert the branch back into the hole. Bunch up some white fabric around the base of the branch to cover up the foam and secure it down with some dabs of glue.
Hang the snowflakes evenly on the branch. Not too many, but make sure there are enough to look balanced. That’s it!
These white branches will look perfect as a centerpiece on a table or as decor on buffet tables. You can make them smaller or bigger depending on your vision and where you need them. It may be fun to add some pops of red or dark purple to match the wedding colors. Maybe some berries or little colorful ornaments you may have left over from the holidays. If it will be placed outside or in a place with high traffic, be sure to add in some pebbles or something heavy to weigh the bucket down so it doesn’t tip over.
