So. . .I am giving in & giving you a little sneak peek! This is my creative project from last week. I have been contemplating what to do for pew decorations. I knew that I did NOT want bows or tulle or flowers. I searched the internet for ideas & there is nothing! Everything is bows, tulle or flowers. After much thought, here is what I came up with. . . A Meg Original!
I made 10 total. I used old wooden blocks & glued 3 together for everything to be mounted on. The blocks are the old kids kind with letters on them. I wrapped the blocks in a burlap. Each pew decoration says something with the 3 blocks like: VOW, 4VR, 726 (the wedding date), 118 (the day we were engaged), IDO, LUV, and a few have our initials & our monogram. I used sticks from IKEA & braided them together with ribbon. Then nailed the ribbon to the blocks. The other sticks are curly willow that are nailed on as well. I didn't use any hot glue! I always burn my fingers while using that & it ends up leaving glue strings everywhere.
