TO HAVE & TO HOLD (AND THROW) (category)

Creatively inspired by Ben Franklin Crafts in New Albany

By Morgan Sprigler

Wedding Season is upon us and the DIY options are endless. Crafting for a wedding not only helps cut down costs but adds a personal touch that won’t soon be forgotten. Can you picture yourself and your soon-to-be being showered in flowers as you exit your ceremony as husband and wife? If so, this is the DIY craft for you! Start saving all of the flowers you receive during your engagement to help out the budget and add that personal touch.

SUPPLIES:

• Dried flowers 

• Essential oil of your choice 

• Cardstock 

• Wooden sign 

• Paint marker 

• Sheer bags 

• Basket 

• Twine 

• Glue gun

STEP ONE 

Gather flowers! I used a combination of flowers, leaves and herbs I found in my garden. Petals from my rose bushes, ivy from my flower beds, basil and lavender from my vegetable garden and hydrangeas from my hydrangea plants. I love the idea of repurposing flowers from your engagement parties, showers or bouquets you’ve received from friends and family over the course of your engagement. All you need is a little sunlight to dry

STEP TWO 

Make floral confetti. Combine all of your petals, leaves, etc. in a large bowl and add your essential oils. I went pretty heavy with my oil, as I love all things that smell great! Once you feel like all of your “confetti” is coated in oil, allow everything to dry overnight.

STEP THREE 

Make cones to hold your confetti. Starting in the bottom corner, roll your cardstock to create a cone shape. Glue the ends down to hold the cone together. If you find that there is an opening at the bottom of your cone, simply apply a dot of hot glue and pinch the ends together. Cut and tie a piece of twine around the middle, if you wish.

STEP FOUR 

Fill your bags (to have) and cones (to throw)! Fill your cones and your sheer bags full of floral confetti. The cones can be used during the celebration, and the bags can be used as gifts for your guests to use in their homes as potpourri.

STEP FIVE 

Create your display. I found all of my supplies at Ben Franklin in New Albany. They have an amazing selection of baskets, bowls and trays that could be used to display your creation. I also found a distressed wooden sign that I used to write, “To Have and To Throw.” So cute!! Assemble however you would like. 

Congratulations to all of you newly-engaged couples! This is such an exciting time in your lives. Enjoy every single moment! Wishing you so much love and happiness!
