Easy Initial CenterpiecesMy brother got married last month! Because of my crafting hobby, I was asked to make the centerpieces. It was a modest event with just close friends and family, and they were looking to keep things simple.
After some Googling, and Pinterest browsing, my soon to be sister-in-law and I agreed on making these initial centerpieces. They are super easy to do and cost about $5 a piece to make!
The supplies needed were papier-mâché letters, an accent flower and tulle for the body of the centerpieces. I used hot glue to attach the items together. I ordered the letters in bulk from my favorite craft store online, as they only stock a handful of each letter in the store.
First I wrapped the letter in tulle one way, securing periodically with hot glue.
Then I proceeded to do it again in the opposite direction, again with hot glue as needed.
Take that glue gun again and attach your flower! I added a bit of glitter just sprinkled on, as these were the second half of the letters. The wedding colors were navy and silver, and the silver tulle I ordered online came and it was glittery! So the navy ones needed a bit as well so as to not be outdone.
To make the bases I cut scrap 1 x 6 boards and cut 5” blocks. Then I spray painted them all silver. Add just a bit more of that magical hot glue and you are all set!
Here are both versions I did. I love how simple they were to make, and how fun for the newlyweds to see in the center of each table.
