OUR DIY WEDDING

When we got married in May we tried to make as many things as possible ourselves. This included most decorations, flowers, music, some of the food and last but not least, my dress (and hair & make-up). This allowed us to create everything exactly as we envisioned it and also save a lot of money. It took a lot of time and nerves. Although we had the help of friends and family, I did most of the projects myself, which was exhausting at times, I’m not gonna lie. So here are some of my favourite DIY projects for our wedding.

Fantastic Mr Fox – Easy Autumn Cushion Covers

cushion covers fox by thisblogisnotforyou.comIn order to get over my end-of-summer blues I decided to embrace autumn and make some new seasonal cushion covers for our shabby sofa.

I found this cute fox & triangle fabric when I went fabric shopping in Bath last months.It’s a printed woven, 80% Cotton & 20% Polyester. I immediately knew I couldn’t live without buying some and two new cushion covers came to mind. It wasn’t a bargain, so I bought 0.5m (140cm wide), guesstimating that it would be just enough for our two cushions.

There’s a tree branch in our living room. Let’s hang it on the wall.

Here’s a selfie of our shabby couch with our new (not so new anymore) roommate.tree branch wall decor by thisblogisnotforyou.comI found this nice little guy when I went running after a day of stormy weather. Out of pity I picked it up and carried it home. I thought Londoners would be used to so much weird stuff that they’d ignore this, but they stared anyway.  (The branch is about 1.5m long, our couch is just so big, that it makes it look tinier than it is)

We hung it on the wall with two small nails and a few bits of string. tree branch wall decor by thisblogisnotforyou.comI was planning on decorating it with white mini origami cranes and just hung this necklace there for the time being. But we liked this so much, we kept it like that. tree branch wall decor by thisblogisnotforyou.comIt has a great effect and it’s such an easy and really simple DIY decor project. I love tree branches because I love wood. That’s probably why I chose to live in a place with this:tree branch wall decor by thisblogisnotforyou.comAnd…this:tree branch wall decor by thisblogisnotforyou.comThis hole in the floor has eaten so many pins that I stopped counting. And a battery. But it hasn’t stolen any of my chocolates yet, so I can live with it.tree branch wall decor by thisblogisnotforyou.com
