DIY Sundae Ring Bearer Bowl
This weekend is going to be jam packed with the last half of our chosen DIY entries! Patricia made a retro ring bearer bowl using vintage sundae cups. The sparkly initials and the pinwheel detail at the end of the ribbon make for a most whimsical ring holder.
What you’ll need:
– Styrofoam ball
– Sundae cup
– Fabric tape
– Wooden letters
Step 1. First, make sure your Styrofoam ball fits nicely in your sundae cup. In my case, the ball is slightly too big and I sawed it into half.
Step 2. Fill up the cup with moss, or some glitters or little meaningful trinkets and spread them around the inside of the cup. Check that there is no ugly gap.
Step 3. Apply a layer of white craft glue over the Styrofoam ball and cover it with the moss.
Step 4. Using a long needle, poke through the Styrofoam ball with the ribbon running through it. Beginning at the position where you want the rings to be tied, through the other end of the ball and create another entry point 1cm away from the last point of exit. Make sure the other end of the ribbon ends up near its other end. This is where you will tie your rings to.
Step 5. Next, for your initials, attach a toothpick to the back of the wooden letters with clear tape or superglue. Then decorate your initials with either your choice of colour or coat it with fabric or glitter, making sure the toothpick is hidden.
Step 6. Stuck the initials onto the Styrofoam ball.
Step 7. You may accessorize the sundae cup with some ribbons or fabric tape.
Step 8. Your garden sundae ringbearer is now ready to house your rings to the alter!
How was the pinwheel made?! I love it!!
The pinwheel was made with a layer of felt (brown) and foam (turquoise). Both layers were cut into equal squares and pasted together. After they are dried, the 4 corners of the square were cut diagonally, leaving a little space in the center. By now you would had seen 4 triangles, pick one of the sharp corners of a triangle, eg. right side, and fold it inwards into the center of the square. Do the same for all 3 other triangles, pinning them altogether with a thread and needle in the center. Lastly add a cute button in the middle where you pinned all the corners together, that’s all to it!
Wow!! it’s simply impressive to make a creative piece of art from simple, easy-to-get materials which was then turned into the most important ‘sundae cup’ that holds the couple’s love token for each other.
I would say many might have a thematic weddings but it’s rare to see the ring bearer to be anything different (from the satin small pillow). Totally out of the box idea! Cheers!
Thank u Shan! Let me have the honor of doing something for u when your big day comes!!
