I am completely enamored by these gilded painted bottles that served as delicious, gilded eye candy for a neutral based table. This fun concept is easy to do/make and would splendid at your next outdoor dinner party, rehearsal dinner or bridesmaid’s luncheon!

Screen Printing Workshop at DIY Bride



Khris of DIY Bride is hosting a Screen Printing workshop and it is a genius idea!  Think of all the wonderful things you could create for your wedding, new home, or gifts. 

from the DIY Bride blog:

This printing technique is perfect for all sorts of surfaces such as paper, fabric, glass, wood, and even metal. With so many possibilities it’s a great skill to learn for making nifty wedding items. Think invitations, t-shirts, aisle runners, bridesmaid bags… or get ultra creative and come up with your own implementation.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Introduction to art – Learn what images will work and what won’t.
  • How to create screens
  • All about ink
  • Basic equipment 101
  • How to make a print

Each video lesson is divided into short, doable tasks that will have you up and running with screen printing in no time. Because this is a self-paced workshop, you can stop, rewind, and restart the videos as many times as needed.

Registration opens on April 16, so be sure to stay tuned for your list of supplies and more information over at the DIY Bride blog

Fabuless Monday: The DIY Etched Glass Vase

Great stuff over at Casa Sugar, the DIY Etched Glass Vase. I spoke about something similar during one of our podcasts– making a DIY Memorial Vase for your ceremony or reception, but this takes it to a fabulous higher level.

I will try this when the mini people aren’t completely monopolizing my time (or holding it hostage)– I have been dying to do something different with all the vases I get from delivered flowers or ones I score from Walmart for dirt cheap.

For directions, follow the yellow brick road:

Have fun, luxelings!
