DIY Wedding Centerpiece: Rustic Elegance

DIY Wedding Centerpiece: Rustic Elegance

Hello – I’m Margot Potter from The Impatient Crafter™! I was tickled seventeen different shades of pink when I received my box of stunning DIY wedding supplies from David Tutera Bridal. We live in a knotty pine cabin style home in the Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee. Decorating has been a lot of fun and also presented many challenges. I love the rustic appeal of all the wood in our great room, but I’m also a gal who loves sparkle. Simple glass vases and a rustic pine container come to life with just a little effort, David’s fabulous supplies and some affordable extras. This DIY centerpiece would be equally at home at an elegant wedding affair as it is in our dining room . . .

The glass vases are 10” long, measure the center point and mark with a permanent marker.

Measure Bling

Glue Bling

Add a line of hot glue the width of the bling and attach one end, wrap, add another line of hot glue and secure bling.

Glue Rope

Cut your rope segments to fit around vase, four for each vase. Starting where your bling on a roll is connected, add a dab of hot glue and gently slide one end of the rope into the glue. Wrap rope to center, add a dab of glue and slide rope into the glue. Repeat for end of rope. Go back in and add a dab of glue at the center point between the glued areas, pulling your rope gently up and sliding into glue. The rope is secured four times. Repeat this process for all four ropes, two on top of the bling and two below it. Take a moment to clean up glue strings and vase before next step.

Put a dab of hot glue on each flower stem, insert into vase and place in center. Hold until glue sets.
