Like many brides before me (and many who will come after) I would like to put a lot of personal touches to the wedding to make it unique. One way to do this is through the power of DIY craft!
Here is my first Kusudama flower pomander prototype:
Now that I see it in a picture, I think it looks quite nice! Why is it only a prototype?
Now, just that took me freaking 4 hours! So let's say a full one will take 8 hours. I don't think the size of the paper will make much difference on the time it takes since it's all the same folding and glueing. But I totally love how it looks! Trouble is, I don't know what to do with it!
1) I originally thought of making 4 huge ones, and 2 even huger ones, sticking them on on dowels and then sticking them in pots to decorate the ceremony area. Ok, just thinking about the maths, that's about 48 hours.
2) Then I thought I could make like a whole bunch about the size as the one above to put on first chair in each row of the aisle. But that's 8 hours times each row time two (each side of the aisle) and that's a friggin lot. Plus it depends on the kind of chairs we get.
3) Or make a bunch of half ones so that they lay flat on a table and decorate the reception tables with them. Pretty cheap decoration I suppose and it would be only 4 hours per table.
Any other ideas?
