Entry #9: DIY Pearl Necklaces

Melissa made pearl necklaces for her bridesmaids that are super easy to create:

DIY Pearl Necklace

What you’ll need:

  • I used 8mm glass pearl beads which you can pretty much get from any craft store. You use 50 per necklace
  • Bead stringing wire
  • Crimp beads
  • 10mm jump rings
  • A pair of needle-nose pliers to crimp the crimp beads
  • Scissors
  • 5 yards of 3/8″ ribbon (color of your choice). You are actually going to use a little over 4 yards but get 5 to be safe

Entry #8: DIY Save the Date Video

Courtney and her fiance created this awesome Save the Date video:

We knew we didn’t want to do a typical save the date. We saw some video STD’s and liked idea, although neither of us are very techie inclined. Tom really liked the idea of stop motion. And then, it seemed perfect, as we have a large collection of photos where we take multiple shots trying to achieve a nice picture. It rarely happens – we’re both not photogenic enough and far too goofy to have a simple normal photo. So the thought of combining all these pictures for a little stop motion fun was perfect.

Instructions: Have lots of time! We went to the craft store together to buy the felt, the cardboard and the stickers. Tom took all the photos (about 400!), I did all the computer’ing with editing and music (it took fo’evah!), and the end result is a cheesy, funny, and hopefully sweet little invitation to our wedding.
