Entry #17: DIY Doily Votives

Allie made these vintage-y lace votives:

DIY Doily Votives

I got my heart set on filled votives, which are generally more expensive than regular glass holders with separate votive candles, but I found a great deal on eBay. The shipping was almost as much as the candles themselves, but the candles were so inexpensive, I only spent $5 more on them than I would’ve spent for regular holders/candles on the least expensive source I could find. When they arrived, it was obvious why the shipping cost a fortune — the box was even heavier than I expected.

Entry #16: DIY Bridesmaid T-Shirts

Amy made cute t-shirts for herself, her bridesmaids, and flowergirls.

My idea was to make shirts for all of my bridesmaids (9), myself, and my flowergirl. So I cut out all of the letters (4th picture), and then got the material at Wal Mart so that I can iron the letters onto the shirts. I forget what that iron-on stuff is called. The final picture is the outcome of the Maid of Honor shirt. I outlined the letters in silver puff-paint for two reasons-it looked cuter AND it would help the letters stay on better. Oh man, I just realized I don’t have a picture of the front of the shirt. The letters are on the bottom of the back of the shirt. I ironed on a heart with the fabric and then put a big bow of ribbons and fabric on top of the heart.
