DIY: Winter Wedding Craft Roundup {Winter inspired crafts for home and entertaining}

by

How is your week going so far?

I do hope you’re enjoying this winter-inspired week on Pocketful of Dreams, it’s certainly getting me into the festive spirit. I’m really looking forward to planning this year’s Christmas decorations and want to do something really funky and unique. BUT I also don’t want to be spending a fortune on new decorations, over the years I’ve already collected quite a number of them, mainly in a very neutral silver colour. This year I would like to add a pop of colour to the silver base, but I also want to create some more unique items to decorate my home.

So in the interestes of sharing my finds, here’s a few of the craft ideas I’ve been loving. Some of these are also perfect for those wintertime weddings or parties, I hope you enjoy my finds…..

Make your own snowglobes like the fancy ones from Anthropoligie. Tutorial on Well Worn. These make perfect quirky little gifts for friends over Christmas, or a totally unique favour for a winter wedding.

A winter knit ring pillow, I have a thing for cosy chunky knits, so I adore these. See Martha Stewart.

Faux snowballs for display by Lella Boutique. Ideal decorations to hang from the tree and around your home, they would also make a really great centrepiece idea, I can see them hanging from silver or gold glittery sprayed twigs.

Sparkly cardboard stars, made from loo roll holders, both genius and economical what could be better? See Michelles Journal Corner for the how-to.

These downloadable soap wrappers by Funkytime are a great last-minute gift idea. I suggest you have a few of these ready at home for those much-needed spare gifts.

In my Winter Spice mood board over on Love My Dress I suggested having a Hot Chocolate Bar to keep your guests warm and cosy. And my lovely blogging friend Louise over at Bijoux Bride has featured a fantastic tutorial to show you how-to make your very own DIY hot chocolate bar.

It's Friday whoop whoop! Balloon arches are cool again thanks to @houselarsbuilt #wedding #weddingplanner
Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
Could not be more excited for my gorgeous client #augustbride #Repost @object_style with @repostapp.
