Our next DIY project was created by Jessica. Her lovebird seating chart display is totally steal worthy, jaw droppingly adorable. Note the birdy bride with a mini veil and the birdy groom with a top hat on each end of the pole :)

Step 1: Purchase wheatgrass kit online and follow instructions.

Step 2: Construct wire poles by cutting one of the 3 balsa dowels into 5 even pieces (about 5 inches). Wrap gold string around the top cross bar in a star pattern until parallel and secure. Repeat on lower cross bar. Repeat for opposite pole.

Step 3: Tie gold string between the two wire poles for the names to hang on. Push the poles into the tray of wheatgrass.

Step 4: Pin guest names to the string with mini clothes pins. Glue wedding birds on opposite tops of poles.

Step 5: Hand paint sign. Glue the remaining 5 inch piece of dowel to the back of the sign. Stick sign into the front of the wheatgrass tray.
