Save money and add a little fun to your wedding decor!
With the average wedding ceremony alone costing between £18, 000 and £21, 000 alone, including a little DIY not only seems like a cool and quirky addition to your décor, but it can help fund your honeymoon too!
Literally thousands of pounds can be saved by doing some things yourself, and it’s really not that hard. All it takes is a bit of imagination and some proper planning to ensure that there is sufficient time for you and your troops, be it the bridesmaids, aunts, mothers, crafty uncles you name it to create gorgeous wedding centrepieces. The best part that many don’t consider is that this also adds a personal touch and a more nostalgic feel to one’s wedding as opposed to cookie cutter, pretty but stoic centrepiece.

BOTTLE ARRANGEMENT CENTREPIECE

Top tip- for added detail, cover up sections of glass bottles using masking tape to create a striped effect.
What you will need:
· Rust-Oleum Metallic in Bright Gold
· Rust-Oleum Metallic in Gold
· Rust-Oleum Metallic in Copper
· A selection of glass bottles/ jars
· A large plate
· Flowers/ candles to dress
1. Move the object(s) to be painted to an aerated location and place on top of newspaper or a dust sheet. Protect the surrounding area with additional dust sheets or newspaper.
2. Make sure that the surfaces which will be painted are well-cleaned and dry and mask off any areas you wish to remain without being painted.
3. Using your selected colour, hold the can approximately 30cm from the surface of the object(s) and spray in a steady back and forth motion, slightly overlapping with each stroke. For the most effective results, whilst spraying make sure that the can remains the same distance from the surface and keep the can in motion. Apply several light coats a few minutes apart.
4. Once dry, you may arrange the bottles centrally upon the plate and adorn with flowers and candles!
There, we told you it was simple, didn’t we?
