DIY Bride Workship with Candidly Pretty

I have been looking forward to this workshop since the first time it was announced last month! So, the reason why I was late during the class last May 25th was not because I was not excited to be there. I just really got lost and could not find Lasting Impressions in San Juan. I thought I was looking for a store, but as it turned out, I was looking for a yellow town house.

There were around a dozen of us in the class, I think. I can't really recall since I was already embarrassed at being late. So I concentrated on Koni's explanation of the stuff inside our DIY kit.


Our first project was to make a headpiece for either the female entourage or the flower girls.







And there I was testing out the look. Please don't mind my scandalous eye-bags. LOL


Next, we did a wedding garter slash baby's headband. It can be used for either of those.



And here I am trying out the garter I made during the workshop. Don't worry, I did this at home so no one was revolted with me showing my legs like that. LOL


Our next project is the yarn pompoms. This was, I think the simplest one to do. 



This next type of flower was really challenging. It took time to do but the results are worth it! Kusudama Origami flower! 







I know I am missing the picture wherein I glued the edges together to form one petal of the flower... But you actually need to do that and then glue 5 of those together and then voila

The last one we did is the boutonnieres. This was fairly easy to do with the different types of flowers that we learned. I just chose the one made in lace and the one made in strips of cloth. And then I cut some green felt fabric to serve as leaves.


Here is a group picture of all the flowers we made during the workshop. I missed to include the flower attached to the wedding garter. But I have included a close up underneath this picture. 



And look, freebies! I love freebies!

So overall, it was a very productive and fun Saturday for us bride to be's during the workshop! Thanks so much Koni of Candidly Pretty! Here's to more DIY Workshops! Woot woot!
