Mason Jar Wine Glasses

Today on MIDDAY I shared a few ideas for incorporating mason jars into a vintage wedding theme.  I showed how to make the Mason Jar Wine Glasses as well as a few other ideas.  The Mercury Glass Candle Holder actually hangs or is beautiful on a table.  It came from Kirkland's in Greenwood Mall and is orderable in four different colors.  The one shown is the pewter colored one.  To personalize it I used a rhinestone pin from the Wearables section of Hobby Lobby.  Take wire cutters and remove the clasp and then hot glue it to the metal work on the front of the candle holder.  You can also glue those to the mason jars if you get the smooth mason jars from the Crafts department at Hobby Lobby.  The mason jars for the wine glasses came from the Dollar General store and are $7.99 for a case of 12.  The candle stick holder also came from there for $1 each.  Use E6000 glue (Hobby Lobby) to glue them together letting them sit for 48 hours before washing.  They are a great take home favor.  If you need custom tags for them I am happy to work with you on a paper order to create just what you need. 

Wedding Season 2012 has begun

I love this time of year.  Holiday decorations are packed away as are all the supplies to make them.  Now I can concentrate on my Wedding projects.  I attended my first Bridal show of the season this past weekend with my good friend Terri, Celebrations Off Main in Russellville, KY.  She had her MOJO Photo Booth at the show and I got to help her with it.  Seeing all the new excited brides was wonderful but in a few cases it made me feel old.  Several of the "little girls" I coached years ago in cheerleading/drill team are now getting married.  Where did the time go?  I haven't posted many wedding photos on here lately since the focus has been on seasonal decorating.  But I want to share a few.  These table numbers were shipped last week to a couple that decided they didn't want to use "numbers" but to personalize it with the names of their favorite Bob Marley songs.  The others are photos of things that have all shipped over the last few weeks to brides across the USA, Australia and Canada.  Hopefully this evening I will get the photos of how to make the "Red Neck Wine Glasses" posted as well.  I demo'd those today on our local midday news show.  Follow me on Pinterest, visit my webstore or you can drop me an email or join me on Facebook.

Valentine Wreath from Deco Mesh

Took advantage of the 65 degree day which is rare for January in southern Kentucky.  Got my Valentine Wreath made and up on the front door.  Donated the Christmas Wreath and stuff to St. Vincent De Paul's thrift store.

Is this one pink enough?  I decided to give it a new twist.  It is built on a grapevine heart basket with two shades of pink deco mesh spirals.  The basket area is filled with pink dew drop roses, pink and white filler and glittery pink heart picks.  Curly metalic heart ting ting sprays were made by wrapping them around a broom handle, removing and wiring to a floral pick.  Love the wreath and want one like it?  You can order from my etsy store for under $45.
