Here’s DIY kit number 2. This one is quicker to do than my first kit on knitted letters, and could be used in a variety of ways to make your wedding day look spectacular! Its Origami hearts!
These are really simple to make once you’ve done a few, and why not speed up the job by getting your bridesmaids involved in an ‘origami afternoon’. All you need is a piece of paper! Heres a few ideas on how to use them;
- Hang them on string as an alternative to bunting.
- Write your guests names on them and use them as cute place settings that your guests can take home as a momento of the day.
- Make small ones and scatter them on the tables as confetti.
Or if you can’t be bothered to make them yourself, why not get your guests to do it! Provide each table with instructions and a variety of colours of paper. You could even ask that guests write their messages to the happy couple inside (instead of a guestbook), then have them hung up somewhere or pinned to a cork board. This would provide a great talking point and keep your guests entertained while they are waiting for food.
