My niece is newly engaged and starting to plan her wedding. Remember the awesome gifts Grandma B and I purchased over the weekend? She’s getting married in an old barn in Southern Illinois in less than 10 months! If I’m focused, I can get 10 projects done before July…maybe?!?!
Here’s a picture of the barn they’ve chosen. A friend of the groom’s family is loaning them the site at no cost. Woohoo!
My first project for the wedding is a vintage swag for decoration and picture backdrop. I’ve purchased 3 flat sheets, 2 curtains and 1 small piece of burlap from local thrift stores, totally $14.00. Here are the fabrics I’m using so far (I’ll need to add some pink or green camouflage per the Bride’s request).
Here are a few wedding swags I’m using for inspiration:
