Just so you guys are updated, I finally bought my wedding dress! Given, I wasn’t really looking for a dress, it just happened!
I was beyond ecstatic! But this post is all about the maid of honor proposal. My sister is my maid of honor and she told me “You have to ask me to be your maid of honor in a cute way”, and honestly I didn’t want to! She already knew she was going to take that role so why do it? But being the loving, kind person I am I decided to do it anyway and I also don’t want to miss out on all things wedding!
Also, not pictured was a balloon that said “I donut know what I’d do without you” and had pictures of donuts, of course.
The box and tissue paper were from Michael’s, it was the easiest thing to put together. She loved it and I loved it also because I didn’t just go out and buy a proposal box. It means more to me that I’m actually doing wedding stuff myself.
If you have any wedding tips and advice I’d love to hear all about it!
What is better than truly making your living area your own by doing fun DIY’s?
I’m always on Pinterest so I come across all kinds of cool DIY’s and some actually seem really hard. I decided doing this simple one that would go great in my room because it seemed pretty quick. (Unfortunately I get really frustrated when things take too long so this project was perfect.)
All you need:
And I used some blue ribbon to make a pocket(but that is optional)
**** When you shop at Michael’s or Jo-Ann’s google for example “Michael’s coupons” or “Jo-Ann’s coupons” there are usually coupons online for like 40% or even 50% off. Definitely take advantage of that*****
You simply have to cover your board with the burlap. You have to make it really tight the first time because it is easy for the material to bunch up which you’ll then have to redo it.
You don’t have to add the pins, but I did to make a border and I used gold because it matches my room. Use whatever colors you want!
Then I added just a little something extra, I decided this board needed a pocket for my important papers.
When it came to actually putting it up in my room I realized I didn’t have much to put on it. I put my school papers in the pocket and some of my 5k run ribbons up. But I do love this board, especially because I made it!
And the final product:
Let me know what you guys think! And if you have any cool DIY’s I’d love to hear all about them!
