Great Craft Ideas – Handmade Wedding Decorations

If you were lucky enough to have had a proposal in the family at Christmas, you might well be planning for a family wedding right now. There might seem like there are still a million things to do –  the wedding dress, the wedding shoes, the wedding hair and makeup and not to mention all those handmade wedding decorations. For inspiration, Pinterest has some fab ideas and you can follow the Lilypie boards for more ideas. There’s also a fab wedding fair on at the end of February 21st at London Park Lane Hilton called The Luxury Wedding Show where you’ll find all kinds of wedding suppliers to help make your special day truly amazing.

With so much planning, if the financials get your head in a spin, fear not, the trend for vintage style weddings is still very popular, and, what’s more they are the perfect place to showcase handmade wedding decorations that you and all the family can enjoy making.

At Lilypie craft courses in Kent we offer craft courses in soap making, blind making, candle making and hypertufa. Not sure what that last one is? Simply put, its the art of creating rustic containers from cement or other natural materials to plant bulbs or flowers in, what fun!

So, whichever you choose, you could apply the skills you learn on a Lilypie course to all aspects of your handmade wedding design. Maybe you could enroll in a Hypertufa course and create beautiful bespoke, handmade wedding table decorations with spring bulbs for a fresh minimalist look? Or, beautiful candles in teacups for vintage bridesmaid gift ideas or scented handmade soap as handmade vintage style wedding favours. The world is your wedding oyster!
